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 labeled as the GOAT (greatest of all time) and now he looks like one (well, herd).

Messi has not played since being sent off in the 37th minute of Miami’s match against Toronto FC due to ‘muscle fatigue’.

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

“We’re pretty confident he’ll play,” Olsen said. “We’ll prepare for them that way. They have some options if that’s not the case. But we will prepare for their best lineup unless we hear something more concrete.”
