The sporting world was in shock after the luxury brand Louis Vuitton brought together two legends of football - Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in their recent ad campaign. The legendary duo shared their iconic picture on their social media handles, where both are playing a game of chess in a promotional picture for Louis Vuitton.
Now to the delight of fans, a behind-the-scenes video of their shoot was released on the internet. The minute-long clip includes both footballing stars arriving for their shoots individually and talking about playing their fifth World Cup and possibly winning the trophy for their respective countries.
During the video, Messi said: “This will be my fifth World Cup. He then stated that his biggest triumph has been the love he receive from his country. He said, “The most memorable victory was being acclaimed by the Argentinian people. It was a great victory for me.”
Messi then talked about LV and that the World Cup is the biggest trophy in football. He said, “I think it’s spectacular that trophies travel in Louis Vuitton. This trophy is so important, it is the greatest award of all in football. It deserves the best of the best.”
Ronaldo was also talking about similar topics and said: "This will be my fifth World Cup so I think it is a great achievement." He then expressed joy about winning the 2016 Euros for Portugal. Ronaldo talked about how all major sporting events use LV cases for their trophies, including the FIFA World Cup and called it ‘fantastic’
Going back to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the duo have created one of the greatest sporting rivalries in history. Both players have been on top of their game for over a decade. They also were part of two rival clubs - Real Madrid and Barcelona, which allowed the two stars to lock horns multiple times. Between them, they have a remarkable 12 Ballons d'Or, 1604 goals, and 75 trophies.
