Let's just say Lionel Messi's youngest son was a bit pumped up for the start of Argentina's victory at the World Cup - but not before his mother, Antonella Roccuzzo, appeared to scold him.

Four-year-old Ciro Messi was pictured jumping on top of the seats and spotted running in the suite section at Stadium 974 on Wednesday, according to Argentine news outlet TN.

The excitement demonstrated by the youngest of Messi's three children - all boys - prior to the clash with Poland was enough to draw a death stare from his mother.

Roccuzzo could then be seen gesturing at Ciro in an attempt to get him to behave before order was restored.

Moments later, television cameras showed a member of the Messi entourage painting Ciro's face, while Roccuzzo took some snaps of her son. 

The family eventually settled down and cheered on as Messi and Argentina defeated Poland 2-0 and advanced to the knockout stage.

Mess had a chance to put Argentina ahead at the 38th minute, but his penalty kick was blocked by Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Midfielder Alexis MacAllister gave Argentina a 1-0 lead just second after the start of the second half with a low first-time shot after a flowing passing move. 

Julian Alvarez then shot one past Szczesny in the 67th minute to make it 2-0. 

Argentina next match is scheduled against Australia on Saturday.
