A nervous Messi was approached by a supporter wearing a Barcelona shirt and bearing the Argentine's name, only to then embrace the adoring fan who then planted a kiss on the forward's forehead.

The game itself saw Argentina take an early advantage via Mikael Lustig's own goal only for West Brom defender Jonas Olsson to equalise.

Argentina regained their lead through Sergio Agüero before Higuaín made it 3-1 after just 23 minutes when Andreas Isaksson spilled Messi's shot. Rasmus Elm rounded off the scoring in injury time with a free-kick.
