Argentinian fans have all the confidence in the world ahead of their World Cup semi-final against Croatia as many planned to cheer their side on to win the match and straight through to the final.
Some fans got ready by buying T-shirts and flags of their national team in downtown Buenos Aires while others, such as Nicolas Melana, showed their support for the national team in a particular way.
Messi exchanged words with Dutch coach, Louis van Gaal, following the final whistle and called a Dutch player “a fool.”
Argentina came into the World Cup as one of the favourites, but they face a big roadblock in the semi-final on Tuesday with 2018 runners-up Croatia, who proved too much for the other title contenders, Brazil.
The Croats stunned the tournament favourites in the quarter-finals with a vintage performance, after going a goal down in extra-time but digging deep to bounce back and force a penalty shootout that they ended up winning.
