Not only beaten by Mexicans, but also detained inside the stadium for several hours without phones. A real nightmare.
for theArgentina there was redemption at the World Cup after the defeat against Saudi Arabia in the opening match: the team of Messi and his companions in fact beat the Mexico and reopened the speech for qualifying for the round of 16. However, a real manhunt for some fans was unleashed in the stands, with episodes of violence that also occurred during the match, including fights that ended in blood. Two Argentine fans have told their nightmare: after being beaten by a group of Mexicans, they were detained inside the stadium for several hours.
“While we were watching the game, 4-5 Mexicans started insulting us shouting ‘Argentinian f**k’. They pushed my son from behind – said the fan – and a very hard fight broke out from there. There was total disorganization, we were in an area with many more Mexicans but that doesn’t justify coming to insult and beat us. First they took me to the infirmary for treatment, then they kept us 5 hours without phones. We had to make some statements and a video call with the Qatari prosecutor.”
