‘Incredible’: Niall Horan Meets Barcelona Legend Lionel Messi During Trip To Spain

One Direction’s Where We Are World tour kicks off pretty soon and it seems Niall Horan has managed to fit in one last holiday before their mammoth adventure a trip to Barcelona where the football mad star managed to meet football legend Lionel Messi.

For those not up with La Liga Messi plays for Barcelona and it seems Niall was able to meet the star after his Sunday night game against Athletic Bilbao at the Nou Camp. He later shared this cute snap.

He wrote alongside it: “Great day at the Barcelona game! INCREDIBLE to meet the best footballer in the world! @leomessi ! What a guy!”

Niall looks hotter than EVER in that pic and in comparison to Messi looks mega tall. Great hair too!

1D gave their fans a treat ahead of Easter with the release of their You And I video in which Niall showed off his athletic abilities.

We’re guessing he’s not going to be challenging Messi for the title of best player on the planet anytime soon!
