Lionel Messi received the backing of his two young sons on Tuesday as the Argentina star hit a hat-trick to help his side beat minnows Haiti in a World Cup warm-up match.

His two sons Mateo and Thiago were both filmed at home wearing their Argentina shirts and singing as they celebrated the comfortable victory just two weeks out from their World Cup opener.

The 30-year-old forward later posted the adorable video of his sons on his Instagram account.

He did however concede that the South Americans remain a ‘very good’ team as they eye their first World Cup title since Mexico 1986.

‘I am very grateful to all the people, we always feel the affection of all, not like other times that we received insults,’ Messi, who took his international tally to 64 goals, told reporters.

‘We all go to Russia for the same reason, the World Cup is the dream of us, of the country. We are not candidates but we are very good, training and improving day by day.

‘We have good players and we are getting stronger to fight as an equal with anyone.’
