Imagine being stuck next to them on the journey back home! Argentina’s World Cup winners rewrote the lyrics to their anthem ‘Muchachos’ – complete with drums and cymbals – on a plane from Qatar as thousands of fans await them in Buenos Aires.
Argentina’s World Cup-winning players, including Lionel Messi, rewrote the lyrics to their famous anthem “Mochacho” as they returned from Qatar carrying the World Cup.
South America beat France 4-2 on penalties at Lusail Stadium on Sunday night in what some have described as the best final ever.
And Argentina is now on its way home, where hundreds of thousands of jubilant fans are waiting for them to start the celebrations in earnest with Messi and company – but the celebrations have already begun on board the flight.

In a post on defender Nicolas Tagliafico’s Instagram page, video footage shows the Albiceleste singing happily, with a drum and cymbals making lots of noise.
The lyrics of the song went: “The final with Germany, I cried for 8 years, but this is over. Why this year in Qatar, the final with the French, my father won it again.
‘children! Now all that remains is to celebrate, we have already won third place, we are already world champions! And we ask Diego to rest in peace, with Don Diego and La Tota, forever.
The flight – with the World Cup in Qatar departing at 5am Argentina time – will refuel in the Italian capital, Rome, before heading to Buenos Aires’ Ezeiza International Airport.
In total, there are two planes for the entourage of champions, including players, coaches, staff, and family members.
