Thousands of supporters gathered in Buenos Aires on Wednesday to bid farewell to the Argentine national football team as it prepared to leave for Barcelona, ahead of the FIFA World Cup in Russia. Fans gathered near the Argentine Football Association headquarters in Buenos Aires, cheering on arriving buses and vehicles carrying the national team. «There are people who love the team, there are... Еще people who do not, but in this moment we have to support the team, that's why we came and we have been here since 5pm to say goodbye,” fan Monica Ferreira said. The team subsequently met with President Mauricio Macri before leaving to Barcelona, where it will train during the upcoming days. Argentina's first game at the tournament in Russia will be against Iceland on June 16.
