Is this boy Messi's biggest fan?

A video has emerged of a five-year-old whose image went viral after he was photographed wearing a homemade Lionel Messi shirt.

Murtaza Ahmadi, a five-year-old football fan from the Jaghori District of Afghanistan's Ghanzi Province, charmed the internet with his makeshift blue-and-white-striped jersey made from a plastic bag.

Murtaza's father told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty that football shirts were too expensive for the family to buy.
