It was bad because we saw how they beat people – Football

“We went back to the locker room because it was the best way to calm the situation, it could have ended in a massacre.” The match against Brazil at the Maracanà ended with a success for Argentina but the incidents in the stands, with clashes between fans and then the intervention of the police, greatly affected the ace of the Albiceleste Leo Messi, who decided to take the team back to the changing rooms and at the end of the match he explained why: “It was bad because we saw how they beat people – said Messi -. Think about the families, the people who are there, who don’t know what’s happening and we were more worried about this than about playing a match that, at that point, was of secondary importance. After that, winning this match in this way I think is one of the most important victories that this group has achieved. It’s something very nice to be able to win here in Brazil, after how strong they have been at home throughout their history.”

Together with the Argentina players, Brazil captain Marquinhos also intervened to invite the fans to calm down. “We were worried about the families, women and children, who we saw panicking in the stands – said Marquinhos -. On the pitch it was difficult for us to understand what was happening, it was a scary situation”.
