The Argentinian team, solid and united, is the pride of Argentinians on Tuesday, December 13. Some gathered in this bar in Buenos Aires to follow the semi-final against Croatia. “We have a team that has a sense of friendship, says Michaela, 37. They are united, professional. I’m really happy. They deserve this triumph. For us, it’s like a caress, a real joy for all social sectors. It’s wonderful.”
In the bar, the Argentinians climb up and dance on the tables. We sing, we kiss. A beautiful and sympathetic euphoria. “I hope Maradona from the sky will help us win the third star,” 13-year-old Tomas said.
“Now we will have to play against Morocco or against France. But France, not because you have this Mbappe who runs at 1,000 km/h!”
Even if Mbappe is scary, many Argentines still want to face France because of this little resentment that remained after their elimination in the quarter-finals at the last World Cup, and remained in the hearts of France under the phrase “Second post Pavard!”. “We want to take our revenge! , Launches Jonathan. Now it’s up to us to carry the trophy, especially since we have the best Messi of all time. It would be nice to see Messi lift the Cup for the end of his career! ”
