Argentina’s stars joined in with the chants.
Argentina celebrated reaching the World Cup final by singing chants about Brazil and England.
It was party time in the South Americans’ dressing room after a comfortable 3-0 win against Croatia in which Julian Alvarez scored a brace after Lionel Messi – who lit up the stage once again – opened the scoring from the penalty spot.
In jubilant scenes, the whole squad whipped their shirts off before singing a new chant which mocks both Brazil and England.
The lyrics include a line saying “Ingleses putos de Malvinas no me olvido” which roughly translates to: ” ‘f***ing English in the Falklands, I don’t forget”.
The word ‘putos’ to describe English people is often given homophobic connotations and can also mean forwards. ”Las Malvinas’ meanwhile is the Spanish translation for the Falklands.
Defender Nicolas Otamendi shared footage of the team’s celebrations on his Instagram Stories after the 3-0 victory.

The full chant is translated as: “Brazilian, what happened, the five-time champions screwed up. Messi went to Rio and he left with the cup. We are the Argentine band and we will always cheer them on because we have the dream of being the world champion. I’m like that, I am Argentinian, f***ing English in the Falklands, I don’t forget. I’m like that, I encourage you, I follow Argentina everywhere.”
The opening lyrics to the song refer to Argentina’s Copa America victory in 2021 in which they beat tournament hosts Brazil in the final.
Another chant sung by Argentina fans refers to English supporters and the Falklands and has been heard in Qatar.
They sang: ” We chased the English everywhere, the Germans are afraid to cross us, oh Brazilian, you don’t know what awaits you when you come to play La Bombonera.
“For the colours of my country I give my life, as the soldiers did in the Falklands, when I die I don’t want any flowers, I want a cloth that has these colours.”
Argentinians also still claim sovereignty over the Falklands despite it officially being classed as a British overseas territory since 1883, with those living on the island voting overwhelmingly to remain as part of the UK.
In 1982 the archipelago was invaded by Argentine forces – who claim that they acquired the Falklands from Spain in 1816 before the British asserted rule – and were involved in a bloody 10-week war ordered by Margaret Thatcher.
Antony and Bruno Fernandes clash as Crystal Palace dent Man United’s title notions
Antony was not happy with Fernandes
Manchester United duo Antony and Bruno Fernandes were seen clashing with each other in the first half of United’s draw against Crystal Palace.
Fernandes looked to have secured United the three points with a goal on the stroke of half time only for Michael Olise’s stunning free kick in second half stoppage time ensured a share of the spoils.
Wout Weghorst also made his debut for the club after they paid Beşiktaş to cancel his loan spell in Turkey and move to Old Trafford from Burnley until the end of the season, with United desperately in need of a striker
The majority of the first half saw Erik ten Hag’s side find it difficult to break down a resilient Palace defence with Antony in particular struggling to get the best of full back, Tyrick Mitchell.
It seemed as if tempers began to flare amongst the United ranks on the half hour mark as Antony and Fernandes were caught exchanging verbals with each other, leading to many speculating on social media.

United now prepare to face Arsenal at the weekend, where they will be without Casemiro after he was booked, taking his total tally to five, meaning he will miss out through suspension.
He did get in for a selfie with a pitch invader, though…

Lionel Messi’s wife responds to Shakira ‘betrayal’ post after Gerard Pique break-up
Lionel Messi’s wife Antonela Roccuzzo has come out in support of Shakira following her high-profile split from Gerard Pique – Messi’s former Barcelona team-mate.
Colombian popstar Shakira shared a candid message with her fans on Instagram as she welcomed in the new year, taking a thinly-veiled swipe at her former partner by referencing “betrayal” and “heartache”.
“Even if our wounds are still open in this new year, time has a surgeon’s hands,” the Hips Don’t Lie singer wrote. “Even if someone’s betrayed us, we must continue to trust others.”
In response, Antonela sent Shakira three heart emojis in the comments section, in the latest suggestion that she and her husband are taking the singer-songwriter’s side in the ugly saga.
Shortly after their split, it emerged that Pique was dating 23-year-old Barcelona-born Clara Chia.
Messi and Pique spent over a decade playing together at Barcelona, having emerged from the club’s famed La Masia academy at around the same time.
Messi moved to PSG in 2021, while Pique hung up his boots in November, bringing the curtain down on a trophy-laded 19-year career that saw him win the World Cup, the European Championship, the Champions League, La Liga and the Premier League.
