Former footballer of the England national team, and now leading on British television, Gary Lineker, on his Twitter, congratulated the striker of Barcelona Lionel Messi on his birthday. Today, June 24, the Argentine is turning 33 years old.
Happy 33rd birthday to Lionel Messi. He’s reaching the twilight of his astonishing career. 722 games and 699 goals for a player that is as creative and unselfish for others as he is prolific and deadly in his finishing. We’ll miss him when he’s gone. Enjoy him while we can. 🐐— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) June 24, 2020
