Happy Birthday, Leo! Messi turns 27 today

On Tuesday, Barcelona star Lionel Messi celebrates his 27th birthday, while participating in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Argentina is already in the round of 16 and even though they looked less than impressive against a much weaker team like Iran, Messi was able to save the embarrassment of a draw with a last minute goal.

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi offered birthday boy Lionel Messi best wishes on Tuesday but warned the Argentine to expect no gifts from the Super Eagles who will be fighting for their World Cup lives when the two sides meet in a Group F clash.

Despite amassing a vast array of trophies with Barcelona, Messi has been relatively starved for success on the international stage, winning just the FIFA U-20 World Cup Netherlands 2005 and Olympic gold at Beijing 2008.
