Argentina played a friendly against Venezuela in India on Friday and the locals were beyond excited to host Lionel Messi and all his friends. In fact, the linesman was so desperate for a picture of the momentous occasion that he decided to quickly snap one just before the captains shook hands with the officials.

It's hard to tell if he was trying to take a picture of Messi or the crotches of his fellow officials, but judging by Messi's reaction, he felt like he was in the way.

Some may question the linesman's professionalism, but even a seasoned pro like Howard Webb has to use every ounce of his willpower to not do this himself whenever he works a Man United game.
