Football fans in the southern Indian state of Kerala have started preparations for the quadrennial sự kiện early. In the tiny village of Pullavoor (Kozhikode district), Argentina fans caused a social media storm by putting up a 30-foot-tall cut-out of Messi right in the middle of the Kurungattu Kadavu district. & they did it after a procession along the road:

But as Newton so famously postulated, every kích hoạt has an equal và opposite reaction, & so obviously this wasn"t the kết thúc of it. Kerala (as is the case with many "neutral" places around the world) is divided almost equally during World Cup time. If one part"s all Argentina, the other becomes clad in the yellow of Brazil.

And so the Brazil fans of Pullavoor decided they needed khổng lồ answer all this Messi-love with a display of affection for their own #10. Và so now, right next lớn the 30-foot-tall Messi stands a 40-foot-tall cut-out of Neymar.

Newton obviously had never met any football fans - there"s no such thing as an equal reaction khổng lồ football banter.

Oh, and of course, the Neymar supporters had a procession of their own too:

But because this is an ongoing battle of one-upmanship, there will continue lớn be larger-than-life displays of tư vấn across the state as the World Cup draws closer. In fact, in Muvattupuzha"s (Ernakulam district) Nirmala College, students created an image of Messi"s face - with 1,18,000 odd post-its:
