Watch the terrifying moment the roof collapses during wild celebrations in Argentina
Argentina won the semi-final against Croatia 3-0, meaning Neymar may have to watch arch-rivals Brazil win the World Cup from home.
The celebrations in Argentina almost ended in tragedy when a roof collapsed and almost fell on the fans. The Albiceleste booked their ticket to the 2022 World Cup finals after a decisive 3-0 win over Croatia in Tuesday’s semi-final at the Lusail Stadium.
The reigning Copa America champions beat Luka Modric with friends as Lionel Messi scored a penalty and assisted Manchester City star Julian Alvarez’s two goals. This triumph was followed by some wild celebrations from the passionate Argentina fans in Qatar.
But that was nothing compared to the scenes seen back home as Argentinians flooded streets across the country. But a party almost ended in disaster when fans climbed onto the small roof of a shop.
A viral TikTok clip showed at least 16 fans cheering, stomping and dancing on top of the fragile roof. But then the structure collapsed, causing some of them to fall two meters below the crowd.
Fortunately, the roof did not completely collapse and fans who fell managed to get back on their feet.
