Can you guess which global football superstar is hidden in this optical illusion?

That’s right – it’s Lionel Messi!

The Inter Miami star is often labelled as the GOAT (greatest of all time) and now he looks like one (well, a herd of them).

Messi has not played since he was subbed off in the 37th minute of Miami’s game against Toronto FC due to ‘muscle fatigue.’

However, Houston Dynamo manager Ben Olsen has told reporters that he expects Messi to be on the field for Inter Miami during the upcoming US Open Cup final.

‘We’re pretty sure he’ll play,’ Olsen said. ‘We’ll prepare for them in that way. They’ve got some options if that isn’t the case. But we’ll prepare for their best lineup unless we hear something more concrete.’
