Following Lionel Messi’s failure to save Argentina from a devastating 0-3 defeat in their World Cup Group match against Croatia, his wife Antonella Roccuzzo became the subject of trolling on Instagram.
Messi’s wife was unable to be in Russia for the tournament, so she took to Instagram to cheer on her husband ahead of the game, having posted a picture of the couple’s three-month-old son, with the caption, “#VamosPapi” — meaning “#GoDaddy”
After a Croatian midfielder delivered the third goal, handing Argentina a shock 0-3 defeat, it instantly made enraged Argentine fans shift to Antonella’s post, reports Sputnik news agency.
Irritated fans mocked the caption to the picture, with one writing, “Papi is a loser”, while another user wrote that “Papi” would be coming home soon when Argentina get knocked out of the championship.
“I hope you will tell Messi to play a better match against Nigeria,” another fan commented, referring to the forthcoming third and final Group D game in St. Petersburg.
However, many others voiced support for the family with kind words and wishes: “Go, Leo! Do it for your family!”
