Proud Argentinian Nico Bolzico was emotional on social media as his home country, Argentina, won the World Cup this year.
On his Instagram account, Nico shared why the win was truly an important event for his country and for his fellow Argentinians. He wrote: “It is hard to explain to non-football fans.”
He added that this year’s championship allowed his country to be united despite economic and political problems.
“This game was the most important game in Argentine Football history. A country divided in two, suffering from years of adverse economic conditions, that for the first time in a long while, felt as one. The team showed that you don’t need money to be within the best countries in the world; you need a united team, hard work, humbleness and leadership.”
In the end, Bolzico gave a special shout out to his wife, Solenn Heussaff, for allowing him to watch it live in Qatar, just a few days after they welcomed their second child.
