What’s more, America’s champion players left their signatures stamped in a special space that had been left free for the autographs of the protagonists of the consecration.

“There is football on this ground,” reads a billboard. The image is worth thousands, millions of tears, words, stories. Worth a little of how much you fought Lionel to get his first title with the National Team. Leo came across this gift when he returned from the Playoffs game. YPF mounted this mural in 24 hours, While Scaloni’s team was in Paraguay, not to break the health bubble. And just this Wednesday, with the presence also of Claudio Tapia, president of the AFA, it debuted in society.

THIS WAS THE WORKING PROCESS
To raise the mural, more than ten people worked on the site on top of a crane. There is Leo lifting the Cup, and the rest of the players doing the Olympic lap at the Maracana. Unforgettable.
How long is the gigantography? 17 meters wide, and 11 high. That is, 187 square meters to portray that happiness that does not end, and it is that this title took 28 years to arrive.
Hence, each of the recognitions are valued, enjoyed, and they feel like the tears that Messi shed at the Monumental when he met the fans again in 3-0 against Bolivia.
Now, the mural that YPF erected keeps other tributes company. Returning to play the Playoffs in September, the players found a surprise on the premises. The costumes had been reconditioned and plotted in tune with the champions of America.
