Lionel Messi Birthday: Hat-Trick for Masters, Trending Topic on Twitter

It’s Lionel Messi’s birthday on Sunday, meaning the Barcelona and Argentina player is now 25!

Messi, who was born on June 24, 1987, did not fail to mark his special day, as he scored a hat-trick Saturday night in the World Soccer Masters Tour.

Messi also set up three other goals as he helped the Masters settle for a 7-7 draw with the Stars.

Although the game was certainly entertaining from the spectators’ point of view, this overwhelming score line is evidently not the best Leo could have had.

But what more to ask in weather affected by heavy rains and lightening?

Without a doubt, fans were definitely pleased by his performance. This follows the amazing show he put on in New York earlier this month, when he scored yet another three goals against a strong Brazilian side to give Argentina a memorable 4-3 victory.

Anyway, Messi is now 25, and anyone can expect another 12 months of sizzling football from the master dribbler. But what are people on social networks saying about Messi’s birthday?

Well, although Messi himself has yet to post anything on his official Facebook page, top sources are already buzzing, having seized the hashtag #messi25.

FC Barcelona, who also shared a special video with their followers, tweeted: “Happy 25th birthday, Leo Messi! Use the hashtag #Messi25 to send him your congratulations! #Messi25.”

Offside Barcelona posted: “Let's take a moment to feel blessed. #Messi25 RT @FCBarcelona: Happy 25th Leo Messi!”
