Messi’s wife mocked

Buenos Aires, June 22: After Argentine forward and FC Barcelona megastar Lionel Messi failed to save the squad from a devastating defeat in their World Cup Group match against Croatia, his wife has become the subject of trolling on Instagram.

As Messi’s wife Antonella Roccuzzo was unable to be in Russia for the championship, she took to Instagram to cheer on her husband ahead of the game, having posted a picture of the couple’s three-month-old son, with the caption, “#VamosPapi” — meaning “#GoDaddy”

After a Croatian midfielder delivered the coup de grace with the third goal, handing Messi’s team a shock 0-3 defeat, it immediately made furious Argentine fans shift to Antonella’s post, reports Sputnik news agency. IANS
