Try topping this trio of athletes together at FedExField this afternoon.

Welcome to FedExField, Messi! Here's a gallery of photos featuring soccer superstar Messi, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and Washington Capitals Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov.

In preparation for the international soccer match against El Salavador, the Argentinian team participated in a training session to get used to the field.

Naturally, soccer star Lionel Messi's presence drew some attention, enough to garner quarterback Robert Griffin III and Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin to pay the legend a visit Friday.  

Messi currently has the most "FIFA Ballon d'Or" awards (given to the best player each year) with four and holds the Guinness Book Of World Records title for most goals in a year (2012) with 91.

Plus, about forty other records and awards. 

To get your tickets to this international soccer matchup, head to TicketMaster now.

Tickets are also available for purchase in-person at the Redskins Ticket Office, located outside Gate A at FedExField.

Here's a closer look at Messi's new Redskins jersey.
