World Championship2018

Argentina team settled in a Kazan hotel with a view of the graffiti of Ronaldo. Two days later, they drew a portrait of Messi

Between the Portuguese and the Argentine continues a long standoff for the title of the best football player in the world.

June 30 in Kazan will be the match of the 1/8 finals of the 2018 World Cup, in which Argentina and France will meet. The Latin American team chose one of two suitable hotels in the city called “Ramada”. But then it turned out that the players’ windows will go out on the graffiti of one of Lionel Messi’s main rivals – the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo.

Footballers compete not only at the level of teams, but also in clubs: Messi stands for Barcelona, ​​and Ronaldo – for Real Madrid. Since 2008, the prestigious Golden Ball award has been won by either one player or the second. Graffiti in Kazan was prepared for the arrival of the Portuguese in the city during the Confederations Cup 2017. According to the publication of “Business-Online”, the only way not to see the drawing from the hotel windows is to take the longest number.

After that, local media reported that Messi refused to live in a hotel overlooking his rival. The Kazan authorities called this information rumors, but noted that next to Ronaldo will appear and a portrait of the Argentine.

Six-meter graffiti player “Barcelona” painted on June 29, the day of arrival of the national team in Kazan. It is located next to the portrait of Ronaldo. “If Messi scores three goals in the upcoming game, we will make graffiti on the building of the mayoralty, I promise,” – said the Mayor of the city Ilsur Metshin.

Also, the artists changed the graffiti of the Portuguese a bit – an inscription appeared over his head: “I scored four goals. Can you beat it, Leo? ” This is a reference to the bombing race at the 2018 World Cup: Messi has only one goal in the account so far.
