Lionel Messi sorry for thinking fellow Argentine player was a supporter

Argentina captain Lionel Messi has apologised to compatriot Sebastian Driussi for mistaking him for a fan and not recognising the Zenit St Petersburg striker when having a photograph taken with him.

Messi is currently on international duty in Moscow ahead of Saturday's friendly against 2018 World Cup hosts Russia.

Driussi recently paid a visit to the Argentina squad in their hotel in the Russian capital and greeted some of the Albiceleste players, including Messi.

The Barcelona star was happy to pose with the 21-year-old for a snap following Driussi's request, but admitted he was disappointed with himself not to have identified a player he knows.

Messi only realised his error when Driussi posted the photograph on his Instagram account with a message that read: "Thanks for the photo IDOL Leo Messi."
