Five-year-old Thiago Messi is obviously too young to understand that there’s nothing more serious than a football awards gala. That’s why FIFA and UEFA spend hours patting themselves on the back while dragging out an exercise that should really only take roughly 10-15 minutes. It’s a place for old men in expensive suits to enjoy upper, upper class high society, not general mirth.
But here’s Thiago, just prior to Luis Suarez taking the stage to award his teammate Lionel Messi his fourth Golden Shoe, acting a fool, making silly faces and enjoying himself beside mother Antonella Rocuzzo. This is honestly the best two minutes of any football awards ceremony I’ve ever seen.
