- Story Text:Argentine football player Lionel Messi showed off his new Adidas Nemeziz boot in Beijing on Friday (June 2) during promotional work in China.
Messi sent his first post on China's most popular microblog Weibo before his Beijing trip, saying that he was looking forward to it.
Five-time World Player of the Year winner Messi finished top scorer in Europe's top five leagues last season with 37 strikes in La Liga and produced a vintage performance as he helped fire Barca to a 3-1 victory over Alaves in the King's Cup final last Saturday (May 27).
After promotional work for sponsors in China, Messi will be in Melbourne, Australia on June 9 to play with Jorge Sampaoli's Argentina squad against Brazil in a friendly. Four days later the squad will play another friendly against Singapore in Singapore.
