If you are having a bad day, try to think about our boy wonder Murtaza Ahmadi.
After his photo of him wearing a Lionel Messi jersey made out of plastic bag hit the internet, the five-year-old football fan is now getting ready to finally meet his idol.
He's now doing it with legitimate Messi gear.
The Afghan Football Federation has been in touch with Messi's team, and it looks like the meeting between the two is just a matter of time and place.
"We've been contacted by Messi's management team and they have expressed their interest in meeting the boy," AFF spokesman Syed Ali Kazemi said according to Al Jazeera. "We are doing our best to coordinate their meeting. The date and the venue is still not confirmed yet, but there are chances of Ahmadi flying to Spain to meet his idol."
In the meantime, Murtaza has been busy practicing with the federation in his brand new Barcelona kit.

Dreams come true in this world, Murtaza and his love for The Beautiful Game is proof of that.
