Antonela, Lionel Messi’s wife, appears to be the only person in America who is unfamiliar with him.
In a humorous example of apparent identity confusion, the football icon’s other half was seen hugging his teammate Jordi Alba.
The 36-year-old Messi currently plays for David Beckham’s MLS team Inter Miami.
And after leaving PSG this summer, the World Cup winner has won his first title.
In the League Cup final, Inter Miami defeated Nashville SC 10-9 on penalties after Messi scored early in regulation and converted the opening spot kick.
After that, his 35-year-old wife Antonela Roccuzzo joined the celebrations on the field to congratulate her famous husband.
Some astute admirers, nevertheless, think Antonela mistakenly thought Jordi Alba was her spouse.
In a humorous exchange, the Argentine model reached out to embrace Alba as she approached, only to realize just in time that he was not her husband.
Before giving each other a distant hug, the two chuckled and turned their heads in opposite directions.
Fans were in convulsions as a result of the chaotic situation; one exclaimed, “Antonella thought Alba was Messi.”
They were both lost, said another.
“In her defense, they do look the same from a distance,” a third person wrote.
I TOLD YOU THEY ARE TWINS, a fourth voice said.
However, a fifth argued in opposition: “She knew it was Jordi. Given how perspirant he must be, they probably did not hug.
Following his signing as a free agent, Alba rejoined his Barcelona teammates Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets.
The full-back, who joined the Catalan giants in 2012 from Valencia, left the team earlier this year after 11 successful seasons.
