The Argentina national team receives worldwide sympathy.
Beyond the tens of thousands who came from South America to cheer on their team, Argentina is undoubtedly the team that receives the most support in Qatar, and perhaps in the entire world these days, thanks to Leo Messi, and the great desire to see the best footballer of our generation "come full circle" and succeed in winning the World Cup his last in his career.

Yesterday, Leo Messi continued to carry the Argentina national team on his back towards a World Cup victory, when he scored the first goal from the penalty spot and added an excellent assist to Julian Albers to march Argentina to an impressive 3-0 win over Croatia on the way to the World Cup final in Qatar.

The official Twitter account of the Argentina team writes an amusing error in Hebrew after qualifying for the World Cup finals (photo: screenshot, the official account of the Argentina team)
After the victory, the official account of the Argentine national team ("Selección Argentina ??") tweeted a tweet to its 4.9 million followers, which read "We are in the final" in a variety of languages.
Among the many languages into which the tweet was translated was also Hebrew, but since the translation was not done professionally (but with Google Translate?) it was written in Hebrew.... "We are finished" instead of "We are in the final".
Of course, this does not harm the joy of Argentina's fans in Israel, who are indeed exhausted from tension, for the grand final and the game for the title, against France or Morocco.
