Angel Di Maria shows off new Copa America tattoo as diehard fan gets entire Argentina squad inked on back07/16/2021
ANGEL DI MARIA celebrated his Copa America triumph with a marathon tattoo session.
The Argentina star scored the winner against Brazil last weekend with a delicate chip at the Maracana.
To commemorate his country’s first South America crown in 28 years, he added a huge design including the trophy to his leg.
And the artist worked away for over five hours to create the work, a process which Di Maria detailed on his Instagram.
The 33-year-old battled through the final with a nasty swollen ankle, which was later revealed on his wife’s social media.
Not like it impacted his celebrations, as he danced around the famous stadium with Lionel Messi and Co.
Captain Messi was himself plagued by hamstring issues during the tournament and played through the pain barrier, according to manager Lionel Scaloni.
However, Di Maria was outdone somewhat by one fan who had the ENTIRE squad inked on his back.
All 29 players were tattooed onto the supporter, including the date of the final and a celebration message – which covered almost his entire back.
The art certainly joins the pantheon of football’s maddest tattoos.

Leeds fan Hayden Kershaw had a mural to Marcelo Bielsa inked on his leg in 2019.

But Kevin Latto’s 2000 artwork of Mike Tyson surely wins the prize, with his tattoo inexplicably featuring a Scotland flag next to the American boxer.
