Argentina Considering Lionel Messi On Currency

Argentina’s financial governing body is considering putting Lionel Messi’s face on the banknotes following the historic 2022 FIFA World Cup victory.

After decades of goals, dreams, and defeats, the Paris Saint-Germain superstar finally raised the trophy on December 19.

The 35-year-old forward scored a double in 120 minutes of a 3-3 draw with France in the final before his team sealed a 4-2 penalty shootout win.

According to El Financiero newspaper, officials of the financial governing body of the South American country are considering ways to commemorate Argentina’s World Cup win.

They are proposing to have Messi’s face printed on a grand bill as the figure begins with the number 10, the same jersey the forward wears.

Another suggestion is to have “La Scaloneta” inscribed on the back of the note, which is the nickname of Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni.

That would honour not only his FIFA World Cup triumph but also his tenure that saw his side lift the Copa America in 2021 and beat European Champions Italy in the Finnalissima this year.

In 1978, Argentina’s Central Bank introduced commercial coins to recognise the nation’s first World Cup win.
