When the family reached the pitch, they snapped a picture together – his wife beamed as she held the phone.
The team’s win put Messi in front of other players like Cristiano Ronaldo and silenced some debates surrounding him the best soccer player of all time.
It also comes after Messi received a letter of encouragement from his 10-year-old son Thiago.
The letter read: “Guys now we’re excited again, I want to win third place, I want to be world champion and we can see Diego from the sky with Don Diego and La Tota cheering on Lionel.”
Although written to cheer on his father before the game, it quoted the Argentine song “Muchachos”, which targeted England for the Falklands War.

Messi met his wife Antonella when he was just five years old – she is the cousin of one of his childhood friends – in La Rosario, Argentina.
They married around their hometown in 2017 200 miles from Buenos Aires.
Guests at their wedding checked into the city’s five-star, 188-room Pullman Hotel, with teammates Gerard Pique and then pop star wife Shakira, Luis Suarez and Neymar attending the glittering nuptials.
Antonela wore a lush gown by Spanish designer Rosa Clara, known for her high-profile wedding dresses.
With her own designer fashion range and a close circle of WAG friends, Antonela’s current life of luxury is a far cry from her childhood in Rosario, in central Argentina’s Santa Fe province.
In 2019, Argentinian newspaper La Capital revealed a touching image showing the footballer and the mother of her three sons as children in the Atlantic resort of Punta Mogotes, almost two decades before they became husband and wife.
Messi left his home country aged just 13 to join Barcelona’s prestigious youth academy La Masia, where he honed the skills that have made him one of the all-time greats.
With the victory, 35-year-old Messi finally clinches the world title in his incredible career
