While Leo Messi continues to be lauded around the world for his achievement of reaching 500 goals for FC Barcelona, the latest tribute comes from a lot closer to home.

Children from the FCBEscola have sent their wishes to the great no.10 following his two goals at the Santiago Bernabéu.

After the youngsters were filmed singing the praises of Messi, members of the first team then took it upon themselves to wish their teammate well after his latest landmark achievement.

His brace, which handed Barça a 3-2 win at the Bernabéu, has given the team a huge morale boost, and Messi will be aiming to continue adding to that tally against one of his favourite opponents on Wednesday.

Against Osasuna, Messi has scored 18 goals, 12 of which have come at the Camp Nou in La Liga.
