Lionel Messi reminded of Cristiano Ronaldo World Cup success in mural outside hotel

The pressure of trying to match Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo is following Argentina star Lionel Messi wherever he goes. And now he has a permanent reminder just outside his hotel room in Kazan.

BBC journalist Richard Conway tweeted a picture of the scene that the Argentina players will look out on. And from a certain angle, it's brilliant.

According to him: "The Ronaldo mural was painted for Confederation Cup last year, when Portugal stayed here in Kazan. The Messi mural was added two days ago -- along with the words..."

That is one very clever mural painter. And clearly not an Argentina fan either.
