Brazil players mocked Argentina’s national football team, following their elimination from the Olympic Games.
Argentina needed to beat Spain to progress to the quarterfinals of the competition but drew 1-1 on Wednesday to finish third in Group C.
While defending Olympic champions, Brazil had beaten Saudi Arabia 3-1 earlier in the day to progress as Group D winners and will take on Egypt in the last eight.
During the match between Argentina and Spain, a group of Brazil players showed up at the Saitama stadium to watch the encounter and were delighted with the outcome, according to ESPN.
Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz uploaded a video on Instagram stories in which he and his teammates Richarlison, Reinier and Matheus Cunha are all seen smiling and waving goodbye while watching the game unfold with the caption: “Goodbye little brothers.”
Luiz and Richarlison were part of Brazil’s squad that lost 1-0 against Argentina in the Copa America final on July 10 at the Maracana stadium.
Argentina won gold at the Olympics in 2008 with Messi in that squad but have not reached the podium since.
