Juventus striker and Portuguese captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, has taunted Argentina after their miserable 2-0 defeat to Colombia on Saturday. The 33-year-old forward did an Instagram Live with his family, and in the video, he told his fans that his wife is half Spanish, half Argentine. He started the video screaming "ARGENTINA!!!".
Watch the video below:
Argentina were hapless as they conceded two goals from Roger Martinez and Duvan Zapata. That loss means Argentina has now lost their first game in the Copa America and will sit at the bottom of group B where they are paired alongside table toppers Colombia, Paraguay and Qatar.
The rival between the duo, Cristiano and Messi, has been everlasting and unending. Cristiano, who was recently crowned champion with Portugal in the UEFA Nations League, has now taken a swipe at his counterpart after Messi's country lost. However, in the video, the world’s richest footballer said he loves Argentina but many question the timing of the video, as it seemed Cr7 was teasing Argentina for failing to flourish under Messi’s tutelage.
