Rocuzzo, the cousin of his friend, happened to be there for a visit and came downstairs in the middle of their game to ask if they needed anything.
It was love at first sight for Messi as he knew right away that he wanted to be with her. Soon it became known to the parents of his friend too that Messi liked Rocuzzo and that he would always get nervous whenever she came in the weekend to visit her cousin. Till date, Messi is teased by his friends regarding the silly faces he put on whenever Rocuzzo was around.
