Lionel Messi Ignores Little Kid's Handshake Before World Cup Game (VIDEO)

Look at his little face! (The kid’s. Not Messi’s.)

Yes, this was the moment that Argentinian striker Lionel Messi refused to shake the hand of an adorable football mascot ahead of his team's World Cup game against Bosnia-Herzegovina. THE MONSTER.

We jest, of course. We're sure Messi just didn't see him - as some fans have said on Twitter. The guy was pretty tiny, after all. Aww. Better luck next time, kid!

UPDATE: It's since come to our attention that Messi did return to shake a mascot's hand... Although unfortunately, it wasn't the little boy who tried to get his attention first time around. Check out the video below:
