Football Heroes Lloyd, Messi Meet

Screen Shot 2015-09-02 at 11.07.19 PMTwo soccer stars from opposite corners of the world got a chance to meet recently in Houston, and one clearly couldn’t hide her excitement.

On Monday, Carli Lloyd tweeted a photo of her with Barcelona star Lionel Messi, while the latter was training with the Argentina national team ahead of its friendly against Bolivia at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston.

A member of the Houston Dash who is best known for her heroics with the U.S. Women’s National Team during this summer’s World Cup, Lloyd tweeted, “Dream come true to meet the greatest player to ever play the game! Thank you @Argentina and Messi.”

While he’s considered the world’s best footballer, Lloyd does have one thing the great Messi does not — a World Cup title.
