The Italian forward, who stands at 5ft and 3ins, put his arms around his mascot's neck as the camera panned down Napoli's side before kick-off.

Since he was captaining the Napoli side, Insigne was the first to come to notice when the cameras pan on to the teams who stand for the UEFA theme song to play before the match.
Fans on social media website Twitter did not hold back their comments when they spotted the height difference between Insigne and his mascot.
Here's how they reacted:
Lorenzo insigne being put with the tallest mascot will always get me every time it happens— Danny (@danny1867swfc) February 25, 2020

Who keeps giving insigne a tall mascot lol— Geralt of Rivia (@Raftweets) February 25, 2020
The Napoli captain is also shorter than Barcelona skipper Lionel Messi.
UEFA gave Insigne a tall mascot so he told him to stand next to him rather than stand in front of him. His reaction says it all. Quality 🤣😭 pic.twitter.com/hhpwRlJO1P— FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) February 25, 2020
