In recent times,
murals with soccer scenes
have become - and continue to be - all the rage in
The death of Diego Armando Maradona in November 2020 gave way to the desire to immortalize him and flooded the walls of Buenos Aires and all over the world with tributes to the idol.
Months later came the
35th anniversary of the Argentina-England
World Cup 86 and the streets were dressed with numerous and varied versions of the
Hand of God
and the goal of the century (twentieth) turned into the Azteca stadium in Mexico City.
Then came the
the first title in 28 years for the Argentine National Team in seniors and the moment of the murals of Lionel Messi, Di María and even the
" Emiliano Martínez
chanting Colombians in the penalty shootout.
And there are also murals that are tastes that some fan is given.
Because of Maradona, Messi and the National Team we are all.
, the club from Almirante Brown's party that currently plays in the
of the Argentine Football Association, not so many.

One of them, Gustavo Vittorioso, summoned the artist Maximiliano Rodríguez to paint a wall on 1200 Bullrich Street. Now on that wall of the La Antena Warehouse, located four blocks from the Claypole station of the Roca Railway and two blocks from the Rodolfo Vicente stadium Capocasa, neither Maradona nor Messi are there.
The one who is here is
Leonel Rubén Landaburu
, author of the goal with which the small club from the South of Greater Buenos Aires nicknamed “El Tambero”, managed to sustain for almost 10 minutes the most important result in its history: 1 to 0 to Boca.
At the beginning of 2021, Claypole managed to return to First C after 23 years in the D. Shortly after this promotion he played for the first - and so far, only - time against a great.
faced Boca for the Argentine Cup,
who had just won the First Division Cup.
Landaburu put him up on the scoreboard in the 29th minute of the first half.
At 36 Sebastián Villa tied and in the second half Gonzalo Maroni scored the 2 to 1 with which the big one eliminated the boy.
On the hour,
Claypole was on the verge of the tie
and the definition by penalties with a ball that crossed the entire small area.
It did not happen, but the same for the fans, the match fought to the end was like a feat.
Two of those fans are Vittorioso and Rodríguez.
At first his idea was that of a mural that would recall the rise and subsequent triumph in the first classic they played against San Martín de Burzaco, and that would pay tribute to the Tambero fans.
But as they went along they decided that Landaburu's goal, the only event in the 98 years of the club's existence and its 43 in the AFA, had to be there.

“I have wanted to do something like this for a long time.
We started with the three smallest images and then, together,
it occurred to us to do the match against Boca
We had a pretty big blank wall so we chose the photos together and this was the result.
The neighbors liked it a lot, "
the southern artist
told the local
news outlet Brown News
On the wall, along with the vignettes that refer to the classic with San Martín, the club's crest, the Malvinas Islands, the stadium and the fans, dominate the scenes of that match with Boca.
There is the departure of the teams to the playing field of the Lanús stadium where that match was played, also the hugs of the footballers after 1 to 0, and fundamentally the moment in which Leonel Landaburu beat the goal defended by Javier García, and the board indicating
the "Boca 0 - Claypole 1" and the precise moment: 28 minutes and 43 seconds of the first half.
"A work of great dimension that required several days of work, but the end result was worth it," said Rodríguez on his social networks.
And he said “very grateful to each neighbor who came to the place to provide the best wave and energy.
We continue to fill our city with color ”.
