French fashion house, Louis Vuitton earlier today launched a new brand campaign featuring football legends, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The fashion house posted a picture on Instagram of Messi and Ronaldo squared up in a chess game with a tag “victory is a state of mind” just before the Qatar world cup 2022.
The picture was consequently reposted by Messi and Ronaldo on their respective Instagram account.
The picture has already gone viral and has garnered over 900 thousand likes within two hours.
The duo will be representing their respective teams in the FiFA world cup starting on Sunday, and hoping to win the sport’s most coveted price for the first time in their careers.
Messi and Ronaldo have dominated football for more than a decade with Messi winning the Ballon D’or seven times – the most in football history, and Ronaldo winning five.
