WHEN ADDIDAS TOLD Lionel Messi they would be recreating his favourite 80′s movie he rushed straight into the wardrobe to fetch his red head-band, toy machine gun and two-foot machete.

Sadly for the Little Flea, instead of remaking Rambo to flog the new Adizero F50 boot they veered closer to Tron and dressed the worlds greatest footballer up as a minimalist Christmas tree.
