Argentines evacuated by helicopter, more than 4 million people on the streets of Buenos Aires

by admin

Buenos Aires was nothing but a party, gigantic, excessive, its avenues swollen with millions of Argentines, to commune with its world champions who had returned in the night, for a victory parade that promised to be incandescent. And above all endless.

The bus from now on “tri campeones” began its parade at the end of the morning from the headquarters of the Argentine Federation (AFA), and was to rally 32 km to the Obelisk, in the heart of the capital, the nerve center of the celebrations. But three hours later, he had only traveled about ten kilometers, slowed down along the way by tens of thousands of supporters, a crowded tide of sky and white jerseys.

More than 4 million people

From everywhere, from the suburbs of the capital, from the provinces, from Rosario 300 km away, they had come, sometimes left in the middle of the night, taking advantage of a day declared a public holiday to come and share the intoxication of the 3rd world title, and invaded the capital in the early hours of the morning. Its avenues, then various squares, access ramps…

Dizzying crowd, which a source from the municipality estimated for AFP at more than 4 million, over the entire extent of the route, outside and inside the city of 3 million inhabitants (nearly 13 for the ‘agglomeration).

“Muchaaachos… ahora ganamos la tercera (now we have won the third (Editor’s note)” From time to time, the song, which had become the unofficial anthem of the Argentine hinchas, resounded along the main avenues, closed to traffic, and in the metro. Alternating with the national anthem, more than ever about “Coronados de gloria…” (Crown with glory…) and an inexhaustible repertoire.

“I can’t say it with words, just with emotion”

Nearly four hours before the departure of the bus, they were already several tens of thousands, probably more, tracking the corners of shade by 25 degrees from 9 am.

Their goal ? Celebrate, Commune, Just ” them “ see. “Just being able to watch them go by is a lot! Just if Messi looks us in the eyes for a moment when I film for me, it’s good! » declared, hilarious, Nicolas, 19, came to the Obelisk with a dozen friends. “36 years since we won… I was six when we won (the title) in 1986. I can’t say it with words, just with emotion”released Paola Zattera, administrative officer.

World: the excesses of coach Macron

In the night, Leo Messi, legendary player and captain, was the first to appear on the plane’s bridge at around 2.30 a.m. local time, brandishing the golden World Cup trophy, to win the red carpet rolled out on the tarmac of Ezeiza business airport.

Aerolineas Argentinas’ sky blue and white Airbus A330 bore the inscription “one team, one country, one dream” with on its rear wing effigies of Messi, Rodrigo de Paul, or Angel di Maria, another hero of the final, author of the 2nd goal. The players immediately boarded a white double-decker bus, flocked with 3 stars and “campeon del mundo (world champion, editor’s note)”, for a few hours of rest at the nearby training center of the Argentine Football Federation (AFA). Cheered by several thousand supporters, who had been camping for hours, eager to be the first to salute the heroes.

From Monday afternoon, in groups, in families, with tents, camping chairs, parillas, drums – and of course balloons – they had posted themselves on the wide shaded shoulders of the journey of about ten kilometers between the airport and the AFA, ready to spend the night.
