An Ecuador player managed to get Lionel Messi's shirt after playing against him on Wednesday night.

The game finished all square at the Estadio Monumental Banco Pichincha after Enner Valencia's 93rd minute strike cancelled out Manchester City new boy Julian Alvarez's first goal for his country.

Messi captained the side and clearly it was his shirt that would be in most demand for the Ecuador players.


Full-back Byron Castillo ended up getting the incredible memento at the end of the game and his reaction has gone viral on social media.

Castillo, who is 23 and has attracted interest from Liverpool and Leicester City, absolutely lost his mind with happiness as he proudly held Messi's shirt.

It was pure joy and euphoria for Castillo. With a beaming smile on his face, he reacted like a big kid who had just received the present he could never have imagined getting on Christmas day.

And on Instagram, the defender was doing a whole lot of fanboying on his social media.

Both his story and main feed have been made up of lots of pictures of him and Messi, along with the snap of him holding up the seven time Ballon d'Or winner's shirt outside his house.
