‘Cristiano, Cristiano’ for Messi

Lionel Messi has received a notable welcome with the Argentine national team to Peru today, with chants of ‘Cristiano, Cristiano’ aimed at him.

The Barcelona man is currently with his national team during the international period for two World Cup qualifiers, the second of which is away to Peru.

Landing in Lima ahead of that encounter, fans greeted the visiting team and Messi in particular with hostile chants.

The ‘Cristiano, Cristiano’ chant is in reference to the ‘Messi, Messi’ chant that both the No 10 receives from his Barca fans and that is aimed by opposition fans towards Real Madrid rival Cristiano Ronaldo to goad him.
