An Argentinian fan proposed to his Polish girlfriend during a televised interview at Stadium 974 in Doha, minutes before the World Cup match between Poland and Argentina began.
The cultured and hospitable fans have made headlines across all media platforms. And now another video of the fans during the match against France is been doing the rounds on social media.
The newly crowned champions of the world boarded an open top bus and several, including Messi, could be seen singing the words to "Muchachos” while they waited for everyone to get on to travel to the headquarters of the Argentine Football Association.
Messi and his teammates including Leandro Parades and Angel Di Maria were forced to duck to avoid hitting the cable at the eleventh hour. If they hadn’t, they could have been knocked off their perch, leading to serious injuries.
Salt Bae, whose real name is Nusret Gokce, was pictured holding and kissing the trophy after Argentina beat France. The Turkish chef was widely criticised for twice grabbing the arm of Messi, who tried to sidestep the unwanted attention.

“We are very ambitious and hungry. We are determined to rewrite the history books. I know we are not the favourites. You may say I am mad, crazy, but a bit of craziness is good. We still want to go further.”
Martinez will play in a back three with Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni opting for more defensive cover against the Dutch.
