The room? Stade de Reims humble Stade Auguste Delaune.

Messi was launched as a 66th minute substitute for one more celebrity in Neymar, and took to the sector to applause.

Needless to say, Twittersphere had a exhausting time agreeing to see Messi in one other membership’s shirt.

It was finally time for Messi’s football to talk, and as you might expect, he seemed to get to Ligue 1 like a duck to the water, gliding around the pitch, dribbling, passing passes and enjoying himself in general.

Especially a moment caught the eye when a defender dribbled past him. Messi immediately chased back, nodded the ball off him, dismissed a pass, got it back and drove forward again – to the delight of the traveling faithful.

Interestingly, in the evening, another superstar – the lost Kylian Mbappe – stole the show with a match-winning brace, and some were quick to point out that since Neymar was withdrawn for Messi, we can still never see the Frenchman, Brazilian and Argentine line up along each other – if Mbappe forces a move away.

When you realize that Messi was handed over to Neymar and Mbappe may not be a PSG player next week …

Others noted an immediate chemistry between Mbappe and his new teammate …

Mbappé has looked for Messi every time he touched the ball, much like he was with Benzema on the euro. it’s adorable how star-hit he becomes.

Liked to comment on Messi’s first steps in French football !! Surreal to see him in another shirt. But the biggest take away from tonight? Mbappé is (still) PSG’s most important player. For 48 hours at least https://t.co/sZlAPpGSHx

Overall, however, it was a nice, simple, incident-free debut for the 34-year-old – even without a goal.

There was even time for a very sweet moment after the full-time whistle, with Messi taking the time to pose for a photo with opponent guard Pedrag Rajkovic’s son.
