On Sunday, Russia took down mighty Spain in the World Cup, thanks to a miraculous foot save by goalie Igor Akinfeev.
It truly was one of the most thrilling moments of the 2018 World Cup so far, especially since that save not only kept the host nation in the tournament but also ousted one of the heavy favorites to win.
Now, feast your eyes on something pretty stunning.
Back on May 22, the Bank of Russia unveiled a special World Cup edition 100 Ruble bank note, per ESPN’s Darren Rovell. That note featured a hologram that uncannily matches Akinfeev’s remarkable foot save.

I mean, those two images are nearly identical.
The Bank of Russia must have a time machine, because I’m not sure how else to explain this.
