Argentina is a complete hubbub after the Argentine team won the world championship against France on penalties. The Albiceleste team landed on national soil this Tuesday the 20th in the early morning hours and this afternoon, it was estimated that there would be a tour of the Obelisk, a historical monument located in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires.
However, plans changed overnight due to the large crowd of people who attended the venue. In this sense, the president of AFA, Claudio Tapia, would be dissatisfied with that last minute decision and would point against the security that protects the caravan.
“They don’t let us get to greet all the people who were at the Obelisk, the same Security agencies that escorted us, don’t allow us to move forward. A thousand apologies on behalf of all the Champion players. A pity”, Claudio Tapia specified.
Tour of the Argentine team in Buenos Aires
Lionel Messi and the world champion Argentine team left the bus in which he was traveling through Buenos Aires to celebrate his world title with millions of fans and greeted from a helicopter, as the large crowd of people prevented them from continuing by land to the central Obelisk.
“The World Champions are flying over the entire route in helicopters because it became impossible to continue on land due to the explosion of popular joy. Let’s continue celebrating in peace and showing them our love and admiration, ”wrote Gabriela Cerruti, spokesperson for the Presidency, on her Twitter account.
The caravan had left shortly before noon from the premises of the Argentine Football Association (AFA), in Ezeiza, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, and intended to reach the central Obelisco, on Avenida 9 de Julio, the venue par excellence.
But after almost five hours of very slow travel, the players with the Cup had to give up that objective and get on the helicopters with which they flew over the city.
“They don’t let us get to greet all the people who were at the Obelisk, the same Security agencies that escorted us, don’t allow us to move forward. A thousand apologies on behalf of all the Champion players. A pity”, Claudio ‘Chiqui’ Tapia, president of the AFA and who accompanied the footballers in the caravan, wrote on Twitter.
