Happy ending: the author of the World Cup hit 'Muchachos' was invited by AFA for the friendly between Argentina and Panama


This is Fernando Romero, the creator of the lyrics that accompanied the conquest of the third star in the World Cup in Qatar 2022. The president of AFA, Claudio Chiqui Tapia, called him personally to give him the news.

After the consecration of the Argentine National Team in the World Cup in Qatar 2022 last December, the country is looking forward to next Thursday to meet again with the team and celebrate the third star, although there was an important character on this path of the 'Scaloneta' who In principle,

I was not going to be able to be present


This is

Fernando Romero

, the creator of 'Muchachos', the hit that accompanied the conquest of Arab lands.

Romero had not been able to get tickets in the virtual sale, where around 2 million people tried to enter to buy their ticket for the Monumental stadium. 

"I lined up with my cell phone and computer. My wife, my father and my brother did the same, but none could get it. I couldn't get any kind of ticket," Romero lamented, in a story that began to spread on social networks and rose in popularity.

"I'm not one to mess around, I never messed around, not before, not during, not in any note or anything. But I would like to have a contact, to know that they know of my existence, that they know who I am, the chance to talk to someone of AFA, leaders, players or whoever. The truth is that for me it is a dream to see the World Champion Team; I would like to be able to fulfill it. If contact were given and not entry, one could fulfill something of what want, but obviously if an entry appears I will use it"

, he explained.

Finally, it was the president of the Argentine Football Association (AFA),

Claudio Chiqui Tapia

himself , who contacted Romero to personally invite him to the match against Panama next Thursday, starting at 8:30 p.m., which will even have a show of ' La Mosca', the band that put rhythm and music to the lyrics that, said by himself, is the one Captain

likes the most


Who is Fernando Romero?

The 30-year-old, who lives in the west of the Buenos Aires suburbs, is a teacher and a fan of Racing.

It was in 2021, after Argentina's conquest of the Copa América, when he decided to put his imprint on the theme of La Mosca that became a hymn for Argentines.

In September of that same year, the Albiceleste faced Bolivia at the Monumental in the first match as champion of America, and

Romero could not get tickets either


Therefore, he had no better idea than to sing the song with his friends outside the stadium.

It was then that the TyC Sports journalist Matías Pelliccioni interviewed him and the song began to circulate throughout Argentina.
