Indian priest is seen conducting pooja in front of an image of Messi 

The world was glued to their television screens on December 18 as France and Argentina battled it out on the field. When Argentina scored the winning goal, the world celebrated not for the country but for its captain Lionel Messi who was playing his last match. 

Celebrations ensued around the world, with people breaking out into dances and impromptu tears. But Indians took it to the next level by conducting a prayer to a banner with Messi. Producer Kona Venkat shared a video of such a pooja on his official Twitter. He captioned the video, “Congratulations to Argentina for winning their dream #FIFAWorldCup The magic man #Messi𓃵 is being worshiped even in India 🇮🇳 who made it possible🦵⚽️(sic)”

In the video, a man is seen conducting a pooja with a lit fire in front of a Banner of the Argentinian footballer Lionel Messi. Another man sitting beside the priest rhythmically played the gong while several people watched from the sidelines. 

When Argentina won the world cup after a period of 36 years, Indian celebrities from Chiranjeevi to Mohanlal took to their Twitter accounts to share their love for the player and the sport.
