A huge Lionel Messi mural was painted overnight on the wall of a three-storey building in Kazan on Friday, ahead of the arrival of the Argentina national team in Kazan for the France clash. Messi and the entire Argentina team are staying in a hotel sharing the courtyard with the building displaying the artwork. According to graffiti artist Dmitry Kudinov, he and his team had to rush to Kazan... Еще once the Argentina was confirmed to play in the city. The artists were asked to paint the mural in the opposite building of another graffiti artwork created back in 2017 of Cristiano Ronaldo, when he and his team were staying in the same hotel during the FIFA 2017 Confederations Cup. The murals of the so-called 'eternal rivals' will from now on share a hotel courtyard. In an effort to motivate the Argentine captain the artists added an inscription in Ronaldo's mural: 'I scored 4 goals. Can you beat that Leo?' Argentina will play against France in Kazan on June 30.
