Former Miss BumBum winner Suzy Cortez has bombarded her football idol Lionel Messi with a series of photographs – in a bid to ‘inspire’ Argentina to victory in the World Cup qualifiers. The 27-year old Brazilian beauty contest winner posted pictures of herself in various states of undress on Instagram – which certainly seem to have done something.
Messi scored a hat-trick as the team avoided embarrassment and beat Ecuador 3-1 to qualify for next year’s tournament in Russia.
Cortez is infamous worldwide for her love of Messi and her incessant sharing of pics tagging the Barcelona star footballer widely regarded as the world’s best player – if not best of all time.
This time she included one cheeky photograph from the gym – captioned: “Every effort, every drop of sweat, worth it! Let’s go Argentina, let’s go Messi!””.
Her tireless pursuit of the Barcelona star continued with another snap just in body-paint.
She even promised to do a surprise for her followers saying “a bet with Leo Messi in World Cup – I will do a great surprise for my Argentine fans and other parts of the world! Come on dear Messi.
She wrote: “Qualified! Congratulations! The 2014 finalist have their spot in Russia”.
Messi has been in a relationship with a friend he has known since he was young, Antonella Roccuzzo.
