Camila Cabello just had a full-blown fangirl moment, as she attended the match between Inter Miami and Atlanta United.
Of course, in the match, Lionel Messi once again established his sheer dominance on the field and Cabello had to admit that he is “obviously the GOAT!”
Camila Cabello Can’t Stop Smiling
The 26-year-old singer posted a few snaps of her at the DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida as she watched the Leagues Cup match between Inter Miami FC & Atlanta United FC, with Messi leading his team in pink to a win of 4-0, scoring two goals and delighting his fans.
Wrote Cabello, “Fan girl mode was fully unlocked when I saw @leomessi – obviously the GOAT, but also so kind and generous with his energy.”
In one of the pictures, Cabello is seen talking to Messi, wearing a Messi jersey in black and pink, with a skirt. Later, she changes into a white vest with a light blue shirt on top, grinning away at the good time she had.
She also thanked both David and Victoria Beckham, as well as David Grutman, writing, “Thank you @davidgrutman for an experience I’ll never forget! And thank you @davidbeckham and @victoriabeckham 😭 IT WAS GIVING BABY PINK 🎀 MIAMI GOING UPPP.”
Fans loved the fact that she knew who the GOAT was, as in Messi, while plenty of Cristiano Ronaldo fans told her off, saying Ronaldo was the GOAT, not Messi. More were simply happy to see so many celebrities together, being respectful towards each other. Here go more pics and the excitement shows on Cabello’s face and body language.

Lionel Messi’s “Star War” Celebration Is Talk Of Town
It seems a pink-clad Messi has a new celebration up his sleeve, and no, despite the color, it’s got nothing to do with Barbie and everything to do with Star Wars. After scoring a goal, Messi displayed a move that left the audience rather tickled.
Pulling a Sith-like move, the 36-year-old star player went all out for a stone-cold celebration. With a blank, staring-into-space kind of expression, Messi raised his hand just like Darth Vader’s iconic force choke, twisting it to show he decimated the opposition, before giving the fans the cutest smirk to cap it off.
Clearly, given that he’s shifted to a new football club, Messi is more than happy to debut a new celebration every time he scores, and it’s giving fans everything.
