ARGENTINA stars Rodrigo De Paul and Angel Di Maria surprised birthday boy Paulo Dybala by bursting into his room and spraying him with foam.
Dybala celebrates his 28th birthday today whilst on international duty with Argentina and was on the receiving end of the hilarious prank by his teammates.

He was then covered with foam by De Paul as his teammates whooped and sang to him, smothering both him and his bed with the foam as he laughed.
Someone blasted an airhorn in the background, which sounded like an out-of-tune recorder, and Dybala‘s teammates then cheered as they finished singing.
The Argentina camp appears to be in high spirits after they beat Uruguay 1-0 in Montevideo on Friday thanks to an early goal from Angel Di Maria.
There was no place for Lionel Messi, however, who started on the bench and was brought on for Giovani Lo Celso late in the second half.
