In the first match of Group C, Rahul was the leader of the Youth Congress that was trolled in Argentina’s loss to Mangkoot. Sharing a photo of Shafi and Rahul who went to Qatar to watch the game directly, Balram mocked saying “Nah…chummatalla”. Shafie’s reply came later saying, “Numma ‘Ara’ is the same bhai..” After Argentina’s 2-0 win against Mexico, Rahul scored a trolling goal for Vaka VT Balram in Mangoota. If you don’t sleep, Vamonuse VT Balrame, Vamos Argentina, wrote Rahul.
From the start of the match, Argentina continuously attacked the Mexican box. But when Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria were blocked by Mexican players, the game reached midfield: in the 34th minute, Messi’s free kick, who was fouled by Alexis Vega on De Paul, was deflected by the goalkeeper Guillermo Ochao. In the 45th minute, Alexis Vega’s shot was blocked by Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez and the first half was a goalless draw. After failing to capitalize on a free kick to bring down Messi early in the second half, the pressure mounted again and it was Messiah who finally came to Argentina’s rescue. In the 63rd minute, Di Maria’s pass over the goalkeeper Ochao in the magic of Messi, the moment in which the Argentine fans, silent until then, explode. Enzo Fernandez’s shot from a pass from Messi with seconds left in the game hit the Mexican net. Argentina will face Poland in their next match to secure the quarter-finals.
