Watching them line up one by one really makes us feel that this was a meet and greet session!
Credit to the Barcelona legend for having the patience and taking time to individually pose for pictures with the squad.
The lads absolutely had a good time training and watching the best and learning from the squad. The experience they gain from the senior players such as Aguero, Di Maria, Otamendi and Messi will be very vital to their preparation for the U-17 World Cup.
