Lionel Messi has been the subject of discussion in recent weeks after (relatively) poor form and now an injury which looks set to rule him out of action for up to two months.

But the Argentine got a boost from his brother on Twitter as he dug out a picture of the forward seemingly going through his cupboard and unearthing an extraordinary number of trophies:

Translation from the Spanish: "This was the photo! Enjoy it, particularly those who are talking. Ah, and there's a Golden Shoe missing! Greetings!"

So there you have it. Is all well in Messi's world? It looks that way—at least, it will be once he can track down that third Golden Shoe...
