Watch: Jamaican forward grabs selfie with Lionel Messi after loss
Sunday June 21st, 2015

After Argentina defeated Jamaica 1–0 in a Copa America group match on Saturday, forward Deshorn Brown didn’t hesitate to snap a selfie with Argentina legend Lionel Messi.

The Internet is bound to hit selfie fatigue at some point, although it’s hard to fault the 24-year-old Brown too much here. Jamaica was already eliminated from Copa America action before the match, and with Messi already right by his side, all that was left to do was get the phone out. There, Brown was pretty quick.

Messi took it in stride, too, even if he didn’t seem entirely thrilled. A quick thank you from Brown, and both players were on their way.
