The Prime Minister shared an image of the blue shirt, with his name on the back, on his Twitter account, saying, ” Impossible to come to Argentina and not consider football. Argentinian players are massively well known in India. Today, got this shirt from @FIFAcom President Gianni Infantino. I express gratitude toward him for the nice thought.”

On Thursday, Prime Minister had expounded how football associated India and Argentina while tending to the ‘Yoga for Peace’ occasion.

“In the event that Argentina is keen on India’s logic, craftsmanship, music and move, there are a huge number of devotees of the Argentine football stars in India. Maradona’s name is utilized as an axiom in India,” he said.

Argentina’s football stars – like Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi – have an enormous fan following in India.

PM Modi left for New Delhi in the wake of closing his three-day visit to Argentine capital Buenos Aires, where he went to the thirteenth G20 Summit.
