Qatar University has decided to convert the room where the captain of Argentina’s football team, Lionel Messi, slept during the World Cup football tournament in Qatar into a mini-museum.
The Argentina squad had set up a camp at the university during their title-winning run in the Middle East.
Their 29-day stay culminated in an enthralling final win over defending champions France in what has been described by many as the best World Cup final match in history.
Reports say that while Lionel Messi is still revelling in his latest achievement of winning the World Cup, the University has moved to immortalise the room he slept in.
The Albiceleste of Argentina camped at the Qatar University in Doha for the entire duration of the tournament in Qatar and ended up beating the defending champions on December 18th to lift the coveted trophy for the third time.
According to the Qatar Peninsula, the University has now announced that the room Messi spent his nights in will be converted into a mini-museum.
A video shows the autographed jerseys of the Argentina players who took part in the World Cup.
The report says that the room is also serenaded by the famous blue and white colours of the Argentina jersey.
Periscope International recalls that the government of Argentina also recently decided that it would immortalize Messi by putting his picture on the national currency for leading the nation’s football team to World Cup victory in Qatar.
