“Welcome to the world champions,” said Tapia at the unveiling ceremony attended by current and former Argentine players.  “I feel very lucky. This honor is very, very special,” Messi said after unveiling a plaque with his name on it. “To know that his name will be Lionel Andres Messi is something wonderful.”
