Argentina’s loss to Saudi Arabia was met with mirth in Brazil, whose beloved “Selecao” lost the 2021 Copa America final at home to their continental rivals.
Many gests can compare to watching a World Cup in Brazil the frame- compulsive football passion; the explosion of pride around the public platoon. And the schadenfreude when rivals Argentina lose.

The result was met with cheerfulness in Brazil, whose cherished” Selecao” lost the 2021 Copa America final at home to their international rivals.
“Argentina” soon came the top trending content on Twitter in Brazil– largely driven by mockery from the kind of suckers who openly admit their alternate-favorite FIFA World Cup pleasure is seeing Lionel Messi and platoon lose.
The Day 3 of the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar saw the biggest derangement of the event so far, as Saudi Arabia secured a stunning 2- 1 palm against’ favourites’ Argentina. After going one thing down, Saudi Arabia produced an inconceivable trouble to bounce back by scoring two pretensions. While both the strikes were worth being played on a circle, the alternate thing was specifically stunning. It was Salem Al Dawsari who scored the winner for his side, beating a number of protectors before putting the ball into the reverse of the net.
Dawsari‘s trouble was the final thing of the match as Argentina could not make a comeback despite launching multitudinous attacks throughout the remainder of the alternate half. The videotape of Dawsari’s thing went viral on social media. Indeed former Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Yousaf twittered the videotape.
Another twittered a picture of himself beaming happily in a unheroic- and-green Brazil jersey, with the words” Do not cry for me Argentina.”
Some Brazilians reinvented the Argentine flag, replacing the sun in the center with a unheroic” blubbing.
Others were inspired to door new delineations of” schadenfreude,” the German word frequently restated as pleasure deduced from another person’s mischance.” Does SCHADENFREUDE mean’ Argentina got squinched’ in German?” wrote one social media wit.
Another beachfront of mockery employed Brazilians’ own lingo– the word” zebra,” which means worried.
“A’ zebra’ at the World Cup is great, but a’ zebra’ with Argentina IS SO INCREDIBLY GREAT,” said one tweet.
“Argentina lost their invincibility in their World Cup nature in a’ zebra.’ If that is not an excellent morning for any Brazilian football addict, I do not know what is!” said another.
But others in Brazil— arguably the only country more frequently cited as event pets than Argentina– were each too apprehensive that what goes around comes around.
“Let’s calm down. Brazil play hereafter, and they are pets!” said one, as Neymar and platoon prepared to make their debut Thursday against Serbia.
Also, there was the unmentionable memory of the Brazilians’ own not- so-long- ago demotion the five- time titleholders’ 7- 1 loss to Germany at home in the 2014 World Cupsemi-finals.” Argentina’s loss may have been a big’ zebra,’ but unfortunately for us, better not to indeed flash back our topmost shame, right?” Know More FIFA News…
