It hasn't been that long since Lionel Scaloni's Argentina was able to put an end to a 28-year drought and win the Copa America. Images from July 10 are still pretty vivid in the minds and souls of the population.
Now, that iconic memory of Lionel Messi kissing the trophy right in the middle of Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro will also be a part of Argentina's capital Buenos Aires for a very, very long time.
To commemorate Argentina's historical win over Brazil, renowned artist Maximiliano Bagnasco painted a stunning mural of Messi kissing the trophy, with no other than Diego Armando Maradona rooting for him from the sky. The two greatest icons in Argentine soccer history celebrate together in a top-notch paint job.

The huge work, located in Buenos Aires' iconic "Caballito" neighborhood, can be seen just a couple of feet away from the Primera Junta subway station, more specifically over Rojas street, one of the most populated areas of the South American capital.
Bagnasco spent over four days spray-painting this 19x14 feet masterpiece and the pictures speak for themselves. It doesn't get any better than that.
