One soccer fan followed Lionel Messi everywhere, and we mean EVERYWHERE.

A 6-year-old Afghan boy met Lionel Messi, and it's the cutest thing you'll see all day. The young boy became an internet sensation after he was seen wearing a Lionel Messi jersey made from a plastic bag.

According the ESPNFC, the young boy's name is Murtaza Ahmady. He met Messi courtesy of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy.

Growing up, we all hope to meet our childhood idols someday. Well, Ahmady was afforded the chance, and he didn't waste a minute of it.

This is why we love sports.

A big thank you to Messi for being a good sport while this kid chases him all over!
