Trophy in hand, gold medal in neck… Argentine players on the red carpet on their way back home

Argentine soccer team players, who regained the FIFA World Cup champion trophy after 36 years, returned home amid enthusiastic cheers from fans.

According to AFP, the plane carrying the Argentine team arrived at Ezeiza International Airport in Buenos Aires at 2:40 am local time on the 20th.

The first to greet the local reporters after the plane door opened was the ‘two Lionels’.

‘God of football’ Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain), wearing a training suit and wearing a medal around his neck, held the 2022 Qatar World Cup championship trophy in his right hand, and coach Lionel Scaloni, the ‘master’, stood side by side with Messi and raised his left hand high. I responded to the cheers.

Messi and the players slowly descended from the plane while listening to the cheering song Muchachos ringing the runway, thumbs up at the reporters, and headed down the red carpet to the bus for the parade.

The bus was engraved with three stars symbolizing World Cup victories three times (1978, 1986, and 2022) and the phrase ‘CAPEONES DEL MUNDO’ (World Champion).

Muchachos, the cheering song, is a song by La Mosca, a group known to be the favorite of Messi and the Argentine national team, and was called the official cheering song of the Argentine national team during the World Cup.

The faces of the players who were packing their bags with their medals hanging around their necks were full of bright smiles. 메이저사이트

The players went straight to the second floor of the bus, clapping their hands and shaking their bodies to the tune of the cheering song, realizing the festive atmosphere.

Even in the early morning of this day, thousands of fans were waiting for the players’ return in gold, waving national flags, camped out around the Argentine Football Association training ground near the airport.

On the way to the training ground, the crowds that paralyzed the roads followed the bus, waving national flags, singing songs, and welcoming the players with enthusiastic hand gestures and cheers.

As the roads were filled with fans, except for the first lane where the buses were moving, the players on the second floor of the slow-moving bus stood close to the railing, facing the fans and breathing together.

The national team will hold a caravan parade with the championship trophy from the training ground to the obelisk in the center of the capital from noon on the day.

Argentina, which defeated France in a penalty shoot-out in the Qatar World Cup final, presented its home country with the trophy for the first time in 36 years since the 1986 Mexico Tournament, in which ‘soccer hero’ Diego Maradona played an active role.

The government designated the 20th, the day the national team returned home, as a public holiday to commemorate their first victory in 36 years.
