It is part of the film of the last World Cup released by FIFA. Weghorst can be seen from the perspective of the Argentine captain after the duel with the Netherlands.
Just over three months before the World Cup final in Qatar, unpublished images continue to appear. In this case, it is a moment that was immortalized for all Argentines: the “what are you looking at, fool?” from Lionel Messi to Wout Weghorst after the spicy quarterfinal duel against the Netherlands.
