Lionel Messi Busy With Dad Duties As Ronaldo and European Stars Kick Off Nations League

Most of the European super stars will be starting their Nations League campaigns today. However, the non-European players currently playing in European clubs are less busy during the International break as they will only have to do with some friendlies. Same is the case with Lionel Messi, whose team Argentina is to face Guatemala on Saturday, 8th September. The Argentine super star is making the most of this international break and is busy with his dad duties.

Lionel Messi posted pictures of himself holding hands of his sons Thiago and Matio. Messi and his wife, Antonella Roccuzzo, took the kids to their first day at school. The kids were wearing uniforms and looked quite happy.


Lionel Messi, 31, posted the pictures to his Instagram account. As expected the photos became instantly viral and grabbed more than 4.3 million likes in less than 9 hours of posting.

On the other hand, other super stars, including Ronaldo and Modric are busy with the debut of the UEFA Nations League which is a new event that aims to make International football more competitive. Ronaldo’s Portugal will be facing Modric’s Croatia on 6th September. Spain will be facing England in their first Nations League fixture. The new tournament promises some great International matches and will provide the European stars to shine for their countries during the International breaks.
