Messi is Here!


In case you haven’t already heard, Lionel Messi and the Argentine soccer team are on campus! In preparation for their friendly match against El Salvador, the Argentine soccer team will be practicing at Shaw field all week.


Although the team only invited 350 guests to watch their practice, hundreds more rushed to Shaw field yesterday afternoon as the word spread. Technically, these practices are closed to the public and the team is not releasing an official practice schedule, but anyone hoping to catch a glimpse of Messi or any of the other Argentine stars would be wise to stop by Shaw field sometime during the afternoons.

Even without Messi, the world cup runner-up team still boasts one of the best national rosters, including Gonzalo Higuaín, Sergio Agüero and Carlos Tevez.

The bottom line is: stop by Shaw Field sometime this afternoon if you’re looking to see some world class soccer and some athletes who spend way too much time taking care of their hair.
