The two superstars take on a series of action-packed challenges in a new ad as they go head-to-head for a can of Pepsi

Two of the greatest left feet in the game have faced off like never before – and there was little to split Mo Salah and Lionel Messi when they came together for Pepsi’s new "Last Can Standing" commercial.

The ad sees the iconic forwards engage in a playful duel of passion and technique in the pursuit of a lone can of Pepsi.

"I’m very happy to see the partnership with Pepsi turn global, and I’m excited for what lies ahead," said Mo Salah.

The commercial launches Pepsi’s 2019 global football campaign under the brand’s new international platform and tagline, ‘PEPSI, FOR THE LOVE OF IT’, encouraging people to go all in for the things they love, brought to life through the brand’s passion of football.
