Willy Caballero’s error handed Croatia an easy victory over Argentina on last night but the headlines was all about Diego Maradona’s tears on the stands while watching his country lose scandalously.
The Blazzers as Croatia are fondly called blazzed through Argentina’s star studded side leaving Jorge Sampaoli’s men without a victory in their opening two matches of the 2018 World Cup hence making qualification for the knockout stages appears to be a tall order.
And Maradona who helped his country to World Cup glory in 1986, had already made his feelings known to the public about this present crop of players saying they need to step up while playing for the National team.
Messi proved the former Argentine coach right as he was largely anonymous in the game. When cameras picked out Maradona in the stoppage time, his mood had changed significantly since kick-off, many viewers believing he was actually in tears at the performance of his countrymen.
