Any FIFA fan among us probably knows that Lionel Messi recently left Barcelona; as one of the greatest football stars, Messi has made headlines all over the world in the past few days because of the fans We are eagerly waiting for his next move. The deal is now complete-Messi is a Paris Saint-Germain player-the French Football League decided to use… A tribute to Super Mario?

The league’s English account posted a Mario-inspired clip on social media to commemorate the star’s arrival, accompanied by a collection of 8-bit sound effects and some coins (well, trophies). As a finishing touch, the French flag appeared at the end of Messi’s goal, which refers to the moment Mario turned Bowser’s flag into his own at the end of the level.

Why should they use Super Mario? Who knows… but @Abbaton911 probably said it best:

We now suddenly want to activate Mario Strikers Charged. Who likes to play games?
