Brazil vs. Argentina: Historic World Cup qualifier is overshadowed by violence and chaos at the Maracanã stadium

Brazil suffered its first ever home World Cup qualifying defeat on Tuesday, as Argentina earned a 1-0 win on a night of violence and chaos at the iconic Maracanã stadium.

Defender Nicolas Otamendi’s towering header on 63 minutes secured a historic three points for Argentina and condemned Brazil to a third straight qualifying defeat for the first time in the Seleção’s history.

However, the match was overshadowed by violence in the stands which delayed the start of the World Cup qualifier.

After fighting broke out between the two sets of fans – which were seated together at one end of the stadium – during the national anthems, Brazilian police moved in to quell the violence but their heavy-handed approach with the Argentine supporters incensed Lionel Messi and the rest of the national team.

The Inter Miami forward first led his teammates over to the stand where the fighting was taking place and pleaded with both the police and Argentina fans – some of who were seen throwing ripped out seats at the security officials – for calm.

Some pictures show crying children in the stands, with one woman carrying a child in her arms as she tries to clamber over the seats and away from the violence.

In one remarkable moment, Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez climbed up onto the stand and pulled the arm of a police officer to try and prevent him from using his baton on an Argentina fan.

Messi then led the team off the pitch and back into the changing rooms where they stayed for 10 minutes. The match eventually kicked off 30 minutes late.

In a statement published to its website, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said mixed fans is “standard” in matches organized by FIFA – soccer’s world governing body – and South American football’s governing body CONMEBOL.

“This is not a model invented or imposed by the CBF,” the statement added. The CBF said 1,050 private security guards and 700 military police officers “worked to secure the match.”

“Therefore, the CBF reaffirms that the action, security and operation plan for the match were strictly followed, as approved by the RJ Military Police and other authorities.”

FIFA President Gianni Infantino said on Wednesday there is “absolutely no place for violence” in football.

“Such events, as seen during the World Cup qualifier between Brazil and Argentina at the Maracanã stadium, have no place in our sport or society,” he said in a statement.

“Without exception, all players, fans, staff and officials have to be safe and secure to enjoy and play football, and I call on all the relevant authorities to ensure that this is respected at all levels.”

Brazil’s state military police said in a statement that its officers were “involved in a scuffle among fans,” adding that eight people were arrested, including a woman for allegedly racially abusing a Maracanã worker.

CONMEBOL and the Argentine football federation didn’t immediately respond to CNN’s for comment.

“The truth is that this group continues to achieve historic things, once again,” Messi told reporters after the match, per Reuters. “Obviously, at the beginning it was bad because we saw how they were beating people.

“You think about the family, the people who are there, who don’t know what’s going on and we are more concerned about that than playing a match. At that point the match was secondary.

“After that, winning this game like this I think is one of the most important wins that this group has achieved. It is something very nice to be able to win here in Brazil, after how strong they have been at home throughout their history.”

In a further unexpected twist at the very end of the night, Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni placed doubt over his position as the national team head coach.

“I need to think a lot about what I’m going to do,” Scaolini told reporters. “It’s not goodbye or anything else, but I need to think because the bar is very high. It’s complicated to continue.

“It’s difficult to keep winning and these guys make it difficult. It’s time to think this time, I will tell the president, I will tell the players. This team needs a coach who has all the energy possible.”

The win keeps Argentina top of World Cup qualifying, while Brazil is now languishing in sixth place and is now without a win in four matches under interim head coach Fernando Diniz, who recently led Fluminense to Copa Libertadores glory.

There are 18 rounds in South America’s World Cup qualifying system, with the top six teams progressing to the 2026 event while the seventh-placed country will go into the FIFA play-off tournament, which will involve six countries from other continents.


The Love Story that Contributed to Messi’s Phenomenal Success

Antonella Roccuzzo, a renowned model and wife of football superstar Messi, has received numerous compliments for her impeccable sense of style. She looked stunning in pink attire that accentuated her beautiful figure, despite being only 1.57 meters tall. Recently, on her personal social media page, Antonella shared several pictures of herself sunbathing and playing with her dog while wearing the trendy pink training clothes from Alo Yoga. Her fit physique and youthful appearance can be attributed to her healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, a balanced diet, and a positive outlook on life.

Antonella Roccuzzo, the wife of Messi, has generated over 2.5 million likes on her vacation photos where she was attending an event in Lake Como, Italy in May. In these photos, she proudly displayed her slim waist while wearing a pink “tree” from Marcelo Zanek, holding a small Kelly bag from Hermès, and wearing Saint Laurent sandals. Antonella’s fans have given her credit for her fashion choices, as she has skillfully coordinated clothes that flatter her height of 5.1 meters.

Back in February, the media in France were all eyes on her when she made an appearance at an event in Paris. She was wearing an expensive outfit from Givenchy that included a blazer worth $2,300, matching pants costing $500,100, a mini bag for about $090,1, and pointed-toe shoes worth $600. She was also seen promoting jewelry from the latest collection of Tiffany & Co. which included earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets.

During her winter vacation earlier this year, Antonella Roccuzzo chose a bold Moncler jacket in metallic pink for her outdoor activities. The jacket not only looked stunning but was also practical with its water and wind-resistant features, along with the added bonus of a hood. She completed her look with matching ski pants from the same brand and carried a stylish Chanel backpack.

Over 2 million people gave their approval to a photo of the model and her partner, Leo Messi, that was taken during an event in Paris, France last July. The model, who is a mother of three, was wearing a casual pink-necked dress from the brand Lovers and Friends, which costs $7, along with stud-studded sandals from Amina Muaddi priced at $228.1.

Antonella Roccuzzo paired an Elisabetta Franchi crop top with pink Dolce & Gabbana pants, creating a fun mix-and-match outfit. She completed the look with Balenciaga handbags and laced sandals that perfectly matched the color scheme.

During her holiday trip to Ibiza, she decided to wear a pink skirt with a slit from Zara. She paired it with a stylish cross top from NonChalant Label, a Chanel bag, and Saint Laurent sandals to complete her look.

During a fashion event in Spain, she combined an Elisabetta Franchi pink dress with a Gucci denim top. She also carried a Louis Vuitton bag and wore sandals made by Dolce & Gabbana.

The gorgeous collection consists of numerous pink designer bags, including popular brands like Chanel, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, and Dior.

The fashion model possesses an array of vibrant bikinis featuring various floral designs from renowned brands, with Guadalupe Cid being her personal favorite.

Antonella Roccuzzo’s wardrobe is dominated by the color pink, whether she’s dressed casually or hitting the gym. Born in 1988, she pursued studies in dentistry and social media. Her relationship with Messi dates back to their childhood, and they began dating in 2007 before going public in 2009. They got married in 2017 and have three sons together – Thiago, Mateo, and Ciro.

Lionel Messi immortalised as Argentina’s training camp named after him in recognition of ‘the best player in the world’

AFA president Chiqui Tapia announced on Saturday that Argentina’s training camp would be named after “the best player in the world” Lionel Messi.

The head of the Argentine Football Association revealed in a tweet that the centre, which was previously known as the Casa de Ezeiza, would be known as “Lionel Andres Messi” from March 25 onwards. The rebirth of the national team’s base recognises a star-studded international career for arguably the greatest of all-time, which of course became complete with the World Cup trophy in Qatar.

Saturday’s reveal caps off a week of homages to the efforts of Messi and Co. in the Gulf State. The Albiceleste players were given a heroes welcome before their international friendly against Panama on Thursday night, and even had time for a recreation of Emi Martinez’s crude Golden Glove celebration.

The recently named “Lionel Andres Messi” camp also completes a significant week for the 35-year-old on a personal level, after he celebrated reaching 800 career goals in that fixture in Panama, and in some style.

WHAT NEXT FOR MESSI? The Argentina captain will lead his side out once more in their friendly against Curacao on Monday night before returning to club duty with Paris Saint-Germain, where rumours of a return to Catalonia refuse to go away.

Can Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo win the World Cup?

Can Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo win the World Cup?

It’s likely the last dance of the GOATs on the World Cup stage. Can Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo win the crown jewel of international football?

Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo could cap off a luminary career by lifting the World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

With over 1,600 goals and over 50 big titles for club and country between them, these two icons have brought the game of football to a different dimension:

Few players have ever been this good for this long.

The great debate that’s raged for over a decade now is who’s better: Messi or Ronaldo? The World Cup in Qatar could give the perfect piece of ammunition to either side of the argument.

Were the captain of Argentina or the captain of Portugal to lift the most coveted prize in world football, their star would shine even brighter in the constellation of the greats.

So who’s more likely to do it, Cristiano or Leo?

Can Leo Messi win the World Cup?

Olympic champion, Copa America champion, World Cup winner?

Leo Messi lifting the FIFA World Cup Trophy would be a crowning moment for the Argentine superstar, and with the form he and Argentina are in right now it’s very possible.

Argentina’s most-capped player and all-time leading goalscorer is set to participate in his fifth straight World Cup finals. He became the nation’s youngest star to play and score in a FIFA World Cup in 2006.

Messi was key to Argentina making the final in 2014 where they lost 0-1 to Germany, and after a disappointing 2018 World Cup, la albiceleste is back hoping to claim top honours.

Jorge Sampaoli was replaced by Lionel Scaloni as manager after the 2018 letdown and the new coach has found a formula that has re-nergised Argentina.

Messi and another Olympic champ – Angel Di Maria – spearheaded Argentina’s 2021 Copa America win – Leo’s fifth Copa final – and they won the 2022 Finalissima.

In fact, Argentina have not been beaten in over three years at the time of writing.

Can Cristiano Ronaldo win the World Cup?

Of course, it’s impossible to talk about Messi without Ronaldo.

Most generations of football fans get one era-defining player: Pele, Maradona, Johan Cruyff, George Best, Lothar Matthaus, Romario, Ronaldinho…

Planet football had seen otherworldly talents before, but never two who sustained their careers for this long at the same time, pushing each other to ever-greater heights the way Ronaldo and Messi have.

The Portuguese mega-star is aiming to cap off a cosmic career by lifting the World Cup and cementing his personal claim to being the greatest of all time.

Ronaldo was greatly responsible for Portuguese football’s greatest moment yet: The Euro 2016 victory – Portugal’s first ever major international title.

Now, CR7 wants to win the World Cup.


Neymar dubs Lionel Messi ‘the best in history’ and names his toughest opponent

Neymar has hailed Lionel Messi as the best player ever and Kyle Walker as the toughest opponent he’s come up against.

Neymar and Messi have played together for the majority of the Brazilian’s time in European football, being teammates for four years at Barcelona before reuniting at PSG last season.

The two players have developed a strong connection both on and off the pitch in that time, becoming good friends and winning a multitude of trophies.

Given that, it’s no surprise to hear that the 30-year-old thinks the Argentine is the greatest player of all time.

“Playing alongside Leo was a unique experience and we became friends,” he told DAZN, discussing their first years together at Barcelona.

“Of those I’ve seen play, Messi is the best in history.”

Perhaps a more surprising answer was given when he was asked who the toughest defender he’d ever come up against was.

Playing at the top level of European football since 2013, the PSG man has gone head to head with all of the best defenders of the past decade, from Sergio Ramos to Virgil van Dijk.

The one he’s had the hardest time playing against though, was Manchester City man Walker.

“He’s fast, intelligent and strong,” he said of the England international.

The two players have gone up against one another on multiple occasions with PSG and Man City playing each other twice in each of the last Champions League campaigns. The English club prevailed in three of the four matches, all of which ended either 2-1 and 2-0.
