The boisterous crowd pushing Argentina toward FIFA World Cup glory
The Albiceleste fans have been among the most energetic supporters seen at the Football World Cup. Billions of people around the world have witnessed the unbridled passion of supporters of the 32 teams participating in the football World Cup in Qatar.
Followers of Morocco, Brazil, Cameroon, Mexico, and other countries have been the subject of endless media attention over their colourful costumes, songs, dances, chants, and stadium choreography aimed at helping their team’s chances at the FIFA World Cup. At the very pinnacle of football fandom, the energy and enthusiasm of Argentinian supporters have lit up their team’s five games played to date in the tournament. With drums, trumpets, and tireless vocal cords, the Albiceleste’s supporters have brought their decades-long dedication to football to the stadiums of Qatar.
The atmosphere is nonentity short of exhilarating when Argentina’s army of supporters, robed in white and blue, energetically belt out the lyrics of famous football chants, such as Vamos Argentina (Go Argentina), and the re-adapted footballing version of Argentinian band La Mosca’s song Muchachos, Ahora Nos Volvimos an Ilusionar Boys, We Have Our Hopes Up Again.

Sung during the group stages inside and outside stadiums, the lyrics go: “In Argentina, I was born, in the land of Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi.”
Regardless of whether they score, concede, possess the ball, or lose it, the loud sound of the Argentinian fanatics is a permanent fixture through the 90 minutes of play, and beyond. It is relentless. As Argentinians, we are mad about football and creating a good environment, said Victor Ramos, 47, an Argentina supporter. A welcoming environment for the players is our way of assisting the squad.
Support from followers is a very important part of any sport, not just football. The expression of Argentinian enthusiasm witnessed at the Football World Cup can be traced back to the undying attachment to local football clubs in Argentina, Jessica Costa from Buenos Aires told.
On Sundays, some people go to church, while others go to the stadiums, told the 28-year-old, who is studying Arabic in Doha. We love our local teams from an early age, she told Al Jazeera, explaining how supporters in Argentina arrive up to three hours before matches kick off.
Such support demonstrates “the love you have for the players. And the same thing goes for the Argentinian team,” she stated.
It’s a big part of our culture and history. Argentina’s embassy in Doha reported that between 35,000 and 40,000 Argentinians travelled to Qatar in hopes of seeing their team lift the coveted trophy after 36 years, according to the AFP news agency. While many of the Argentinians who could afford to travel to the Football World Cup are more well-to-do, there are multiple stories of people with far less who have made the journey, including putting off buying homes and cars to do so, agreeing to a Reuters news agency report.
There is also no shortage of support for the Albiceleste among fans from other countries, including India. Indian citizens can be seen in large numbers at Football World Cup games clad in Argentina and Messi jerseys and holding posters of the legendary Maradona.
Argentinian football also has problems with supporters, particularly the barra bravas a network of organized football admirers who are known for both their fanatical support of their teams and their violence. Compared with football hooligans in Europe, the barra bravas are thought to be present across Latin American football squads and among several top local football clubs in Argentina and have been linked with illegal street businesses, intimidation, and fighting, including some that have been deadly.
Earlier this year, the Buenos Aires city government told it was cooperating with Qatar authorities to prevent some 3,000 barras brava members and thousands of other violent followers from entering stadiums throughout the Football World Cup. Costa, the Argentinian student, and Qatar resident said it would be wise to keep the barra bravas away from stadiums everywhere, including at the FIFA World Cup.
“They create real problems, she stated. At the World Cup, you want to create an atmosphere for families also, where we can cheer and sing together all united. But with these people barra bravas, there is violence they start fights and bring knives. It’s not a healthy environment.”
Roberto Oscar, a communications specialist also from Buenos Aires, told Al Jazeera that while he is glad steps had been taken to restrict the barra bravas and to prevent hooliganism at the Football World Cup, the presence of fanatical fans at games does increase the enjoyment. Before, the atmosphere is easy and peaceful. But when they come, that’s when the party starts, Oscar told. It’s like a crazy spectacle. After booking a semifinal spot for Wednesday against Croatia, more Argentinian supporters are expected to arrive in Qatar in hopes of seeing their squad advance to the final, and star player Messi finally winning the one major trophy that has eluded him.
“I think we have a good chance against Croatia Costa thought. We have been enhancing every game. I don’t want to think about losing. But, if it happens, I will still be very proud of the squad.”
