Lionel Messi & Argentina’s Soccer Team Welcomed Home By Enormous Crowds After World Cup Win
Lionel Messi and his teammates continue celebrating Argentina’s new title as FIFA World Cup champions.
He was seen Monday sitting atop the bus with fellow champions Leandro Paredes, Rodrigo De Paul, Angel Di Maria and Nicolas Otamendi as the team arrived home following their win in the final against France. Paredes rocked an Argentine flag as a cape while Di Maria flaunted the golden trophy. The soccer players all rocked medals that hung around their necks.
Upon their arrival in Argentina, thousands of fans crowded the streets to welcome the athletes home. They were welcomed with a parade that was so large the team had to be transferred to a helicopter.
“The World Champions are flying over the entire route in helicopters because it became impossible to continue on land due to the explosion of popular joy,” a presidential spokeswoman said on Twitter. “Let’s continue to celebrate in peace and show them our love and admiration!”
