Canada Global (Web News) Argentina’s bid for a third World Cup title is being aided by hordes of travelling fans who have turned each of their matches in Qatar into virtual home games.
Football stadiums in Argentina are known for their roiling ferocity; famous Buenos Aires furnaces like the Bombonera or Monumental shake with passionate ferocity.
At Doha’s Lusail Stadium, where tens of thousands of Argentine fans have built a boisterous wall of blue-and-white shirted sound, those kinds of situations are frequently reproduced.
At the gleaming 88,966-seat stadium, where Messi and his teammates will play Croatia on Tuesday in an effort to secure a spot in the World Cup final, Argentina has already played three games there.
In the majority of Argentina matches, the “Albiceleste” stayed on the field after the final whistle to share an emotional moment with their fans.
After Friday’s quarterfinal victory against the Netherlands, Messi stated, “We like to take advantage of these moments with the people who are here and in Argentina, where everyone is ecstatic.”
