India dreams of Lionel Messi

A great video of street football in Kolkata as the city waits with bated breath for the Argentina Venezuela friendly tomorrow.

…and more footage of Messi mania in one of the most soccer crazy cities in India.
About 120,000 people are expected at the Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium in Salt Lake tomorrow and they will all turn up to see Messi play
Bhaswar Goswami, chief executive of the celebrity management group staging the match, has highlighted the importance of Messi’s arrival: “Pele came here at the end of his career – Diego Maradona came but did not play. Messi is coming at his prime. This match will inspire a whole generation of young Indians and their parents.”
