The Turkish internet sensation wowed the pair with his meat-cutting skills, and his iconic salt sprinkling style that gave him his popular name.

Both players had a go at re-creating his technique, to differing success, and were then fed a slice piece straight from the knife.

While Messi was enjoying his date with Salt Bae, his Argentine compatriots were busy beating Mexico in Cordoba.

Goals from Ramiro Funes Mori and Isaac Brizuel gave them victory as Messi continues his break from the international game.

The 31-year-old has been absent from national duty since the World Cup, but may return in time for next year’s Copa America.

Pogba was forced to pull out of the France squad with a thigh injury this week that caused him to miss last weekend’s Manchester derby.
