With Lionel Messi and co in the process of preparing for a Copa America final against hosts Chile, word of encouragement have come from the Godfather of…well, actually just the Godfather himself.
After falling in love with his current girlfriend, Argentinian Lucila Sola, Al Pacino has similarly fallen in love with the Argentina national side. So much so he released this short video.
As featured on the Copa America website, Pacino comments;
I have just seen you play again, yet again and I love the way you play. I get excited along with my wonderful girlfriend Lucila.
I am very excited to even be talking with you, it’s thrilling for me to talk to you and to let you know how wonderful and great you are as players.
I get really happy when I see you play; it’s always a pleasure for me.
I don’t know you as people so I don’t want to say how great you are as people, but as players, I love you.
