Relations between the United States and Argentina took a healthy turn recently.
Barack Obama's daughters were treated to signed Lionel Messi jerseys after the President announced during a trip to Buenos Aires that his kids would love to meet the star. Scheduling conflicts resulted in the opportunity to meet the Barcelona star ending in disappointment for the Preseident's daughters, however.
Messi, never one to disappoint, sent the two Argentinian number 10 jerseys with Sasha and Malia on the back to the White House.
Obama, who is an avid sports fan himself, appears to have handed the gene down to his daughters and we know who the Obama's will be cheering for tonight in El Clasico.
