If you watch this video you will see that Lionel Messi was not ready when Shimon Peres hit this ball and ended up getting hit in a place God did not intend to get hit by soccer balls. Ironically you could say that after this incident Messi actually has more reason to dislike Israel than most, yet he doesn’t. Why? Because he is an intelligent and decent individual and of course this was all in good fun. Good luck in the FIFA 20144 World Cup Final Mr. Messi.
