In a celebration, not only joined by Argentina when Messi and the rest of the team raised the World Cup after beating France in an incredibly heart-stopping game, millions of soccer fans around Latin America celebrated another country’s win as if it was their own.
That’s the beauty of soccer. It has the power to unite or to divide, and Latines have shown that celebrating other Latines’ victories is nothing but a strength that only makes us prouder of our roots.
The biggest fiesta was definitely held in the Albiceleste country, where thousands of Argentinians took out to the streets to celebrate their team’s win and honor one of the best soccer players in the world, Lionel Messi.
Celebrating Messi’s legacy and Argentina’s win
Everywhere from Rosario — where Messi is from — to Buenos Aires, Argentina’s happiness was not able to fit in a single territory. So, countries like Mexico, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Brazil, among others, had to join the contentment.
While Messi’s hometown was filled with excitement that seeped through any wall in the area, and Buenos Aires literally turned albiceleste with the number of people wearing the Argentinian soccer uniform with pride, and guatemaltecos were also screaming in joy after the final result. Even people in the United States celebrated this win.
Needless to say, different celebrities and public figures also congratulated and celebrated Argentina’s win over France. One of our favorite boricua singers, Bad Bunny, jumped from emotion, and another Puerto Rican, Ricky Martin, also joined the fun.
