It is a symbol of royalty and honor that Qatar gave to the Argentine 10 as a sign of respect for a man who “succeeded for his country.” The original Arabic ones can cost around $700,000 (Argentine pesos).
It not only caught the attention of the millions of viewers living in the moment, but also sparked controversy. As a strategy beyond the Qatari culture for Messi to lift the cup for the first time in the tunic of that country.
The truth is that it eclipsed the albiceleste shirt with the Adidas logo that the German brand longed to see in the first images that traveled the world, from 10 with the historic cup.
The Argentines did not miss the opportunity to do business either. Currently, the “champion Messi tunic” is offered on online sales pages such as eBay and costs around $9,000. It is also sold by Mercado Libre with prices around $10,000.
