The bad mood that was experienced on the field, and also outside it, in the quarterfinal match of the Qatar World Cup Come in Argentina Y Netherlands, which ended with the elimination of Louis Van Gaal’s team in the fateful penalty shootout. There was tension on the pitch and it was later transferred to the changing rooms.
One of the controversial chapters was starred by a Leo Messi who had them with Van Gaal during the match and that later he continued to fight with Wout Weghorst. The international ‘oranje’ was supposedly on his way to shake Messi’s hand when he famously blurted out… ‘what are you looking at, fool? He goes there ‘, while he was being interviewed on TV.
Well then, the controversy of that meeting kicks in and the proof is that, at the New Year’s Eve party that Messi and some Argentine internationals celebrated in the Rosario casino, there were elements that recalled that ‘pique’. The party cups had a card in which the aforementioned phrase could be read (‘what are you looking at, fool? Go over there’) along with a reminder of Argentina’s third world title.
