Kabul, Feb 2: The Afghan Football Federation plans to set up a meeting between Lionel Messi and five-year-old Afghan fan Martaza Ahmadi who became an internet sensation when photos circulated of him wearing an improvised Messi shirt made from a plastic bag.

Afghan federation spokesman Sayed Ali Kazemi said today they hope Messi can come to Afghanistan to visit the boy, but otherwise they will arrange to send him to Spain, where Messi plays with Barcelona, or arrange a meeting in a third country.
