Thiago Messi steals the show from dad with a savage nutmeg during presentation

Lionel Messi was introduced as an Inter Miami player in front of a raucous sellout crowd of over 20,000 at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday night. Messi was welcomed in the driving rain with an impressive display of pyrotechnics and star-studded video messages (Tom Brady! Steph Curry! Gregg!), and he thanked the crowd for making his family feel so welcome in the city.

Shortly after that, wife Antonela Roccuzzo and the three boys (Thiago, Mateo and Ciro) showed up on stage to soak it all in. But they were thoroughly bored with all the speeches and photo opportunities by that point and quickly went off to do what Messis do — they play soccer.

Thiago, now age 10, then produced the highlight of the evening by ending his father's Miami career before it'd even begun. 

And here's Messi the 36-year-old soccer dad. He loves it. 

If any of the boys want to go pro, they're at the right club (the one where Romeo Beckham and Harvey Neville got minutes).
