Jamaica will head home from the Copa America having failed to score a goal, yet Deshorn Brown made sure he hit the headlines by grabbing an opportunistic on-pitch selfie with Lionel Messi following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Argentina.
Winfried Schafer’s men put in a spirited display in their final Group B fixture, restricting tournament favourites Argentina to a solitary goal – courtesy of Gonzalo Higuain – in Vina del Mar.
The contest saw Messi win his 100th cap and the Barcelona superstar was the centre of attention at full-time as Brown seized his chance to claim a cheeky post-match memento.
After using his phone to capture a selfie with Messi, Brown shared the image on his Instagram account.
The accompanying message read: “Not the result we were looking for, but I get to meet the best player in the world and it was a great feeling to play against him!! Best of luck to Messi and Argentina in the rest [of the] tournament!!”
