Messi and Argentina train at Starfire: Photos

New, 19 comments

In case you haven't gotten enough gratuitous "Lionel Messi is in Seattle" coverage, MikeRussellFoto went to Starfire to catch a few minutes of the #1 FIFA ranked team and put together this little gallery.

The Copa America in Seattle started a bit slow. Peru and Haiti put on a great experience, but the hype level was...lagging. And then, the Best Week Ever started. It is a week that features Lionel Messi training at Starfire Sports and playing (but maybe not starting) at CenturyLink Field as Argentina plays Bolivia on Tuesday night.

Their training was not advertised. But still dozens showed up, for this is the greatest player in the world, in Seattle, training at the same facility as clubs, high schools and community colleges.

This is Lionel Messi - in Seattle.

Even Sigi Schmid, Ante Razov, and brothers Chris and Sean Henderson watched.
