The path of the Argentine soccer team in the Olympic Games ended after draw 1-1 against Spain this Wednesday. Tomas Belmonte’s goal was not enough for the Albiceleste to qualify for the quarterfinals and those led by the Bocce Batista saw how La Rojita and Egypt entered the next round above them in Group C. The quick goodbye sparked an unexpected mockery from a handful of Brazilian players, including Richarlison.
“Bye, little brothers”wrote the young Aston Villa midfielder Douglas luiz in an Instagram story after the end of the duel between Spain and Argentina. In the recording he could be seen next to Matheus Cunha, Renier Jesus and Richarlison, saying goodbye with a raised hand and a mocking smile. Is that Caerinho qualified for the next phase after finishing as leader of Group D and will face Egypt.
Hours later, the person who answered the message was Rodrigo De Paul. One of the figures of the Copa América that Argentina beat Brazil this year at the Maracana used social networks to post an image with a clear message to the Brazilian forward. In the image, corresponding to the grand finale, the brand new Atlético de Madrid reinforcement is seen standing looking at the Everton striker who is looking to rejoin. Along with the photo, he added three emojis: a face asking for silence, a trophy and the Argentine flag.
The crossing is not a novelty if it is taken into account the video that went viral after the consecration of the team directed by Lionel Scaloni. Evidently De Paul doesn’t like to be silent at times like this and that became clear when the Argentine team celebrated the title on the Maracanã grass. At that moment, faced with the madness for the historic 1-0 victory, the midfielder began to sing “Brazilian, Brazilian …”. Only those two words were enough for Messi to mark a line of conduct. He immediately looked at it and, before Giovani lo celso will join those stanzas, he said “Nerd”.
Now, he took advantage of the fact that the captain cannot stop him, and used his Instagram account to answer Richarlison, who was part of the Brazilian cast that was defeated at home against Albiceleste.
Rodrigo de Paul, signed by Atlético de Madrid for the next five seasons, visited this Tuesday together with the president of the club, Enrique Cerezo, what is already his new stadium: Wanda Metrolitano. This was reported by the rojiblanco club, which has published on its website a photo of the footballer with the leader in which both hold a club shirt next to the shield.
“I am very happy, I am going to the La Liga champion and I know the responsibility that this entails. It is a great step in my football career. Also at the time he arrived, after winning the Copa América. That gives me more strength to meet all expectations. I am passionate about football, and also because of my time in Spanish football, I know Atlético very well, not counting all the friends and teammates I have who play in Spain ”, he declared after his signing, playing 27 years of past in Udinese from Serie A.
