Young Afghan Boy Meets his Idol

Last month 5-year-old Murtaza Ahmadi became an internet sensation after a photo of him surfaced playing soccer in a homemade jersey. Murtaza, who idolizes Argentinian soccer star Lionel Messi, could not afford an official Messi jersey so he made one of his own. Using a striped bag, Murtaza donned his makeshift jersey and took to his field. Murtaza and his family are from the Ghazni province in Afghanistan, which is one of the most war-torn provinces in the area.

His older brother Jon Urbana, who made the jersey, said that the family could not imagine affording something like a Messi jersey which is why he made one for his brother. Homayoun is also responsible for uploading the now iconic photo of his brother playing in the homemade jersey.

That photo has captured the attention of his idol, according to the story on Time.com.

The Afghanistan Football Federation has confirmed that officials for Messi have reached out to them to set up a meeting between himself and Murtaza. There has been no official confirmation yet, but it is rumored that Murtaza may even be flying to Spain for his once-in-a-lifetime meeting with Messi. A spokesman with the Afghanistan Football Federation has said that they plan on giving Murtaza a chance to tryout with the team when he is old enough as well.
