Wild goal celebration, Argentina airport security runs off with a passenger’s boarding pass
An argentinian immigration officer celebrated an Argentina goal mid-way through checking someone’s boarding pass. Goals from Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister and Julian Alvarez of Manchester City sent them through to the knockouts with a 2-0 win against Poland.
It sent Argentina through to the last 16 and a meeting with Australia. A video on Twitter highlighted the moment the border guard found out his national team had scored against the Poles. And the passport officer wildly ran away with a woman’s documentation.
It left her baffled as she began to chase after him. The footage was captioned: “I love you very much, sir, who leaves his job and is going to shout the goal of the national team. How it has to be.”

Fortunately, the member of staff wasn’t away from his position for long. One user said: “Calm people. It is seen in other videos that he moved a few steps and returned to his job. All legal. Joy was all over the airport.”
Meanwhile, Diego Maradona’s old house has been used to stage a huge World Cup party. With all of Argentina cheering Lionel Messi and his teammates on at home and in bars, one particularly special party was taking place in the South American country.
The owners of Diego Maradona’s old family house hosted a massive celebration at his former luxury pad to celebrate the victory. They are believed to have only bought the home six days ago but let people in free of charge to watch the World Cup clash.
Pictures and videos show incredible scenes of Argentinians crowded around the pool and having the time of their lives as they marked the win.
