The Argentina national team had a World Cup champions welcome by everyone in attendance at the Monumental.
When Lionel Messi and his team mates took to the Monumental pitch on Thursday, they were greeted with a roar of the crowd that is practically not seen anywhere else. The festivities were already under way with singing and chanting but what the fans gave the team will never be forgotten.
Prior to the national anthems, both Argentina and Panama stood and the fans used the opportunity to thank the team. Below is a video of it all, one that is very much worth watching.
From 2:50 onwards, I swear, I have never seen anything like this before. Argentina, best fans in the world. 🇦🇷pic.twitter.com/9rCdZ2hs2v
