Football star Lionel Messi marries childhood sweetheart in 'wedding of the century'

Sports Police Raids Venue of Lionel Messi's Wedding

Messi, a forward for Barcelona, first met Roccuzzo when he was 13.

Domínguez recalls the painful moment a tearful 12-year-old Messi had to leave Argentina for Spain to undergo treatment for an illness, leaving behind his friends, family, school and Roccuzzo.

ANGEL DI MARIA is the only player with links to Real Madrid who has been invited to Lionel Messi's wedding.

Barcelona teammates of soccer ace Lionel Messi have already started arriving in Argentina ahead of the superstar striker's lavish wedding celebrations. Antonella is good friends with Luis Suarez's wife, Sofia Balbi, and they recently launched their own line of shoes together.

Messi, 30, grew up in a lower-middle-class neighborhood in Rosario along with two brothers and a sister.

When they arrive in the USA they are treated as domestic passengers and do not have to pass through customs a second time. The UAE's national airline Etihad praised the decision made by the American Department of Homeland Security.

Countless videos and photos have been shared following on from the wedding, but here are just a few as Messi is without a doubt winning in life both on and off the pitch.

The party was to be a respite for Messi from his legal woes.

Roccuzzo wore a white mermaid-style gown with a sweetheart neckline and embroidered straps by Spanish designer Rosa Clara.

The wedding will take place at the City Center complex in the couple's hometown of Rosario, roughly 200 miles from Buenos Aires.

Uruguayan pop bands Rombai and Marama plus singer Karina, Aguero's wife, will perform at the reception.

I believe the Jazz have a team that will give him the best chance of winning, and they are close to becoming a serious contender. Rubio was a bad three-point shooter, and Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins are midrange players who can get to the rim.

Shakira also joined in the celebrations, along with her husband, Gerard Piqué.

The wedding was termed as "the wedding of the year" and "the wedding of the century", by Argentina's Clarin newspaper.

But various old friends of the couple in their home city said the bride and groom were humble folk who had never forgotten where they came from.

Messi passionate on the pitch, passionate with sweetheart Antonela.

The newlyweds asked guests for charitable donations to the Leo Messi Foundation instead of gifts, according to Goal.com. The duo has two sons: Thiago (4) and Mateo (1).
