    Lionel Messi’s stunning wife Antonela Roccuzzo was spotted leaping from her seat in the stands as she watched her husband – one of the biggest stars of the Qatar World Cup – get his squad’s bid for glory underway with an early penalty in Doha today. 

    The 34-year-old – who herself has more than 22 million followers on Instagram – jetted to Qatar last week to support her childhood sweetheart, from the couple’s lavish Paris home. 

    Her husband’s first appearance was a nerve-jangling one though, as underdogs Saudi Arabia took the lead early in the second half, after Messi’s penalty was cancelled out just before half time. 

    The glamorous WAG, mother to the couple’s three sons Thiago, nine, Mateo, six, and Ciro, four, enjoys a life of luxury in the French capital, after her footballing husband signed a two-year deal in 2021 with Paris Saint-Germain.

    With her own designer fashion range, and a close-knit set of WAG friends, Antonela’s current luxe life is a far cry from her childhood in Rosario, in the central Argentine province of Santa Fe.

    Travelling without her three sons, who attend a private international school in the French capital, the WAG appears to be enjoying her time in Doha, enjoying a night out with fellow footballer’s wife Sofi Balbi, who’s married to Argentine star Luis Suárez.

    The close friends were clearly enjoying their night out in the balmy Middle Eastern city. Ibiza is a regular holiday destination for the two women, enjoying yacht holidays and luxury hotel breaks with their respective husbands – who played together at Barcelona. 

    On Instagram, Antonela shares snaps of her glamourous European trips, posing in her bikinis, and alongside her husband and their three children.  

    Messi, regarded by many as the best player of all time, married Antonela in a glitzy wedding in their hometown of Rosario on June 30, 2017.

    Guests at their wedding checked into the five-star, 188-room Pullman Hotel in the city, with teammates Gerard Pique, and then pop star wife Shakira, Luis Suarez and Neymar attending the glitzy nuptials. 

    Antonela wore a lavish dress by Spanish designer Rosa Clara, known for her A-list bridal gowns. 

    In 2019, an Argentinian newspaper La Capital uncovered a touching picture showing the footballer and the mum of their three sons as children nearly two decades before they became man and wife, enjoying themselves in the Atlantic holiday resort of Punta Mogotes. 

    At the time, Messi was playing in a youth football tournament in the nearby city of Balcarce.

    Antonela, who was about to turn 10 and was already a close friend of the footballer, had travelled to the area with her parents to see her cousin Lucas Scaglia, who was one of Messi’s teammates.

    The photo, showing the pair with other children including Lucas and another team-mate called Matias Pecce, was taken in January 1998.

    Mrs Messi has been by her husband’s side for every major triumph – including winning the Ballon d’Or a record seven times in  2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2021. 

    And Antonela will hope that lifting the World Cup, a feat that has so far evaded the celebrated footballer, will still be on the cards.

    England’s newest WAG on the block! Everything you need to know about Bukayo Saka’s girlfriend Tolami Benson, 22, after they FINALLY confirmed their relationship at the World Cup 

    England WAGs were seen celebrating at the Qatar World Cup stadium after the team’s 6-2 win against Iran.

    Bukayo Saka‘s glamorous girlfriend Tolami Benson, 22, stepped out to cheer the football player on before rushing to celebrate with the team after watching their spectacular victory.   

    The pair are thought to have started dating in late 2020 but have kept their relationship quiet until recently.

    Rumours of the relationship between the Arsenal player and Benson began last year when she posted a photo with someone in a mask on Instagram.

    Before the match, Tolami also shared a snap online as she posed in the blue and white England shirt.  

    She later appeared in high spirits as she grabbed a seat alongside Saka’s brother, with both wearing matching England shirts to show their support to the team.   

    Their romance was uncovered by fans in February when they shared individual pictures on a yacht in Dubai.

    The couple do not share pictures of themselves together and don’t even follow each other on social media. 

    However, Benson regularly shared pictures in Gunners kit to her 7,500 followers on Instagram, showing her support for her boyfriend’s Premier League team.  

    The beauty was born on December 3, 2000, making her one year older than her beau Saka, who was born on September 5, 2001.

    Her zodiac sign is Sagittarius, which means that she is an optimistic and reliable person. Tolami appears to be a very private person and details about her personal life or what her occupation is hasn’t been disclosed yet.   

    England fans heaped praise on the winger Saka after England’s World Cup win over Iran yesterday.

    The team beat Iran 6-2 in their opening game in Qatar, with Saka scoring twice in the 43rd and 62nd minute.
