Soccer superstar Lionel Messi of Argentina arrived in Korea Monday to play in an exhibition game versus a K-League All-Star team Wednesday.
The game will also mark the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Korea and Spain.
In a news conference at Mayfield Hotel in western Seoul, the FC Barcelona striker said, I feel extremely tired after a long flight.
With a smile on his face, he added, I slept over the entire flight. I cant even remember what time it is and where I am right now.
He was obviously exhausted and even caught yawning in his news conference.
Messi got more excited after the topic turned to soccer, however. Its too bad I couldnt score a goal even with so many chances in the World Cup, but Ill try my best to score this time, he said.
I had high expectations and wanted to get to the higher rounds of the World Cup. Now I`d like to only think about the league and promise to deliver a good performance.
After holding an open practice Tuesday, Barcelona will face the K-league All-Star team at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. Wednesday.
