Behind-the-scenes footage of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s internet-breaking picture has been released

Behind-the-scenes footage from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s photo shoot with Louis Vuitton has been released.

On Friday, Messi broke the internet by posting a picture of him playing chess with Ronaldo, with a caption that read: “Victory is a state of mind.”

Now, fashion giants Louis Vuitton have released a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot.

During the video, Messi said: “This will be my fifth World Cup. The most memorable victory was being acclaimed by the Argentinian people. It was a great victory for me.”

The Paris Saint Germain star added: “I think it’s spectacular that trophies travel in Louis Vuitton.

“This trophy is so important, it is the greatest award of all in football. It deserves the best of the best.”

Ronaldo said: "This will be my fifth World Cup so I think it is a great achievement."

Messi then spoke about his personal favourite from the Louis Vuitton collection.

The 35-year-old said: “My favourite Louis Vuitton article is the carry-on suitcase. I travel a lot, so I love it. We had such a good time during the shooting. It was a great experience for me, and I really enjoyed coming here.”

Messi is hoping to fire his country to glory in what will be his last-ever World Cup.

Ahead of the tournament, the Argentina captain expressed his excitement.

He said to the South American Federation CONMEBOL: “We are very excited. We have a very nice group that is very eager, but we think about going little by little.

“We hope to start the World Cup in the best way to face everything that comes after.

“The more you play and the more time you spend on the pitch, the more you get to know each other.”

Argentina will kick off their campaign next week against Saudi Arabia, before taking on Mexico and Poland.

On the other hand, Ronaldo will also be fired up in a bid to lead Portugal to the ultimate prize in the whole of football.

The 37-year-old said: “I am very optimistic. We have a fantastic coach, we have a good generation of football players. I'm looking forward that we're going to it an amazing World Cup… [It’s] gonna be tough. Extremely difficult. But everything is possible. But of course, we're gonna compete.”

The World Cup kicks off with hosts Qatar taking on Ecuador at 4pm UK time on Sunday 20 November.
