Lionel Messi, the international football sensation is probably on the verge of getting knocked out of the world cup and at time, when he is in need of sheer support from fans, the opposite is happening. As if there wasn’t any less pressure on this man, the fans have also disappointed in him. His wife, Antonella Roccuzzo, ahead of Argentina’s clash against Croatia on Thursday had posted a picture of their youngest son, three-month-old Ciro, wishing Messi good luck for the match.
She captioned the picture – #VamosPapi” — meaning “#GoDaddy” – which means Go Daddy. However, the match turned into a nightmare for Ciro’s father and the entire Argentina side after Croatia thrashed them 3-0 in the Group D game at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium
After the match, angry Argentina fans mocked the caption to the picture, as one of them wrote, “Papi is a loser.” “Papi” would be coming home soon when Argentina get knocked out of the tournament,” another fan wrote. “I hope you will tell Messi to play a better match against Nigeria,” another person commented, referring to the upcoming third and final Group D game in St. Petersburg.
Meanwhile, many others voiced support for the family with kind words and wishes: “Go, Leo! Do it for your family!”
However, with Nigeria’s win against Iceland, hopes are still alive for Argentinians and Messi is the key to win, what the player needs now, is support from his fans across the globe and assists from his teammates in the game.
