The Central Bank of Argentina is considering putting Lionel Messi’s face on the new upcoming 1,000 peso bill in an effort to honour his spectacular input in their World Cup win over France.
According to newspaper El Financiero, the Bank is already working on mock-ups something that has gotten fans over-excited.
Under Scaloni’s reign Argentina have gone on to win the 2021 Copa America, the first ever Finalissima at Wembley Stadium and the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
If officials at the bank press on with their plan to release the note – which they believe would become highly collectible for Argentinian civilians – it would not be their first venture of crossing currency with the national team.
