At 30, Junior Messias managed to make one of his dreams come true: scoring goals in the Champions League. As if that weren't enough, he also chose a heavy goal, the one against Atletico Madrid which gave Milan the victory, reopening the games for qualifying for the round of 16. Her story also bewitched Claudio Marchisio, who expressed his emotions on Facebook:
"I know that I usually publish photos of players wearing a black and white shirt, but since last night I can't get these images out of my mind. Messias for some years, when for some circumstances of his incredible history, he enchanted everyone in the team in my small town in the province of Turin. These images are for all those who are chasing their dreams, whatever they are! Because last night's lesson is that there are no dreams that are too big, but to achieve them you have to work hard and trust. There is no other way to do it. "
