Football crazy Indian couple tie the knot wearing Messi and Mbappe shirts


A football mad couple did the ‘unthinkable’ on their glamorous day as they celebrated this years world cup by wearing Messi and Mbappe shirts to tie the knot at their wedding.

The pair then hurried home to watch the final. The new couple, Sachin R and R Athira didn’t want their wedding day disrupting the cup.

Sachin is a dedicated fan of Argentina star Lionel Messi, while Athira is a super supporter of the French football team starring Mbappe – supporting different team means they will don different jersey.

They opted against the tradition wedding dress and instead chose to wear French and Argentinian football shirts baring the names Messi and Mbappe.

Hours before the two teams met in Qatar’s Lusail Stadium on Sunday, December, 18, they married each other in a ceremony held in Kochi city, Kerala, India.

They wore jerseys over their jewellery and traditional wedding attire.

It was reported that the couple raced through their reception and wedding feast to make it back to Sachin’s house in Thiruvananthapuram- 128 miles away- in time to watch the final.

Argentina would go on to win the final in a penalty shootout 4-2, giving 35-year-old Messi a chance to lift the World Cup trophy in the most dramatic way ever.
