World Cup 2018: 20-year-old Messi fan allegedly hangs self to death after Argentina crashed out

A 20-year-old fan of Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi and the Argentine national team from India has committed suicide after the Albicelestes were knocked out of the ongoing World Cup.

Messi-led Argentina was kicked out of the competition in Russia by France with a goal margin of four to three on Sunday.

The 20-year-old Halder was said to have killed himself in Habibpur which is in West Bengal’s Malda district.

Halder was an ardent fan of Messi and was heartbroken after his favourite team’s ouster from the elite competition and skipped dinner on Saturday night. He went off to sleep locking the doors of his bedroom.

On Sunday morning, after several attempts to wake him up, he did not open the door and the police were informed.

The door was forcefully opened by the police and Halder’s dead body was reportedly found hanging from the ceiling.

Maradona Shows Up For Argentina vs France Match Despite Doctor’s Warnings

Diego Maradona has turned up for Argentina’s Round of 16 clash with France despite warnings from a doctor. The football legend looked in good spirits as he blew kisses to fans before kick-off at the Kazan Arena.

The Argentine legend has been one of the talking points of Russia 2018 with his eccentric antics in the stands.

He is being paid £10,000-per-match by Fifa in his role as an ambassador.

It’s seen him appear at all three of Argentina’s group stage games as they scraped through to the knock-out phase.

After the dramatic 2-1 win over Nigeria, Maradona received emergency medical treatment after “drinking all the wine”.

Such was the concern over his health that there were even reports that he had died – a rumour Maradona was quick to quash.

 

The World Cup winner revealed that he had defied doctor’s orders by staying to watch the second half having been advised to go home.

During that game, fans speculated Maradona’s troubles with drug addiction could have returned after speculation over what was causing strange white marks on the glass of his VIP box.

Fans Storm Salah’s Home After His Address Was Leaked On Facebook. Photos

Liverpool star, Mohammed Salah proved he is a man of the people by signing autographs for hundreds of Egyptian fans outside his house. Supporters flocked to the Liverpool star’s Cairo residence after his address was posted on Facebook.

Tons of people blocked the road and pavement as they waited for a glimpse of their hero, who scored twice as Egypt crashed out of the World Cup at the group stage.

But instead of remaining inside and trying to find a way to disperse the crowd, Salah instead joined them outside before signing autographs and taking pictures.

Fans couldn’t believe their eyes as Salah mingled with them on the street, despite looking slightly worn out from his exploits in Russia.

However, with traffic backing up on adjacent roads, the police soon arrived and broke up the large gathering.

Salah will now be looking to rest up and regain his strength ahead of a second season with Liverpool.

His 44 goals guided the Reds to a top four finish and a Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Salah is set to be joined in Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI by new midfield arrivals Fabinho and Naby Keita.

World Cup 2018: FIFA to pay Super Eagles £6.1 million after crashing out [See other prizes]

The Super Eagles of Nigeria and other teams that crashed out on the group stages of the 2018 World Cup will be paid only £6.1 million each by the football governing body, FIFA.

The World Cup winning team will receive £28 million in prize money from FIFA, with 2nd, 3rd and 4th place teams receiving £21million, £18million and £16million respectively. This means that for the World Cup winners, each player in the 23 man squad would pocket £1.2million. The 32 teams were also given £1.1million each to prepare for the tournament.

Cristiano Ronaldo Snubs Former Coach During World Cup Match, Coach Fires Back.

Iran football team coach, Carlos Queiroz has sensationally blasted former protégé Cristiano Ronaldo for a perceived snub in the wake of Iran’s 1-1 draw against Portugal. The pair forged a close bond during their time together at Manchester United.

But things turned sour during Queiroz’s ill-fated reign as Portugal boss, culminating in a last-16 exit from the 2010 World Cup.

When asked by reporters about their poor display against Spain, Ronaldo sniped: “Ask Carlos.”

And the feud appeared to continue during Monday’s final Group B clash, with the Ballon d’Or holder failing to go over and shake hands with Queiroz at the final whistle.

This infuriated the Iran boss, who claimed that Portuguese football started long before Ronaldo was around.

Queiroz said: “I can’t understand someone who can’t be bothered to come over and greet a coach who spent 12 years working for the Portuguese football federation.

“During my time there, I won European and world titles, brought new ideas and restructured the team. “The history of the Portuguese football federation didn’t start on the island of Madeira with Cristiano Ronaldo. It started well before then.

“And those are not the values which I was taught by people like Jose Augusto, Simoes, Eusebio, Humberto Coelho… “I’m not saying that the values which modern day players have are bad, just that they are not the same as the values I and many other people hold.

“Some people who tried to destroy my personal life and professional career are now facing prison sentences, in jail or well on their way to ending up there.”

Mikel Obi, Super Eagle’s Captain has said that his further stay in the national team would be determined by future realities. Mikel, who agreed that the team had a disappointing outing against Argentina in the last group D match at St. Petersburg Stadium on Tuesday, disclosed this at a post match conference.

“It is very young, disciplined and supportive,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Nigeria failed to advance into the second round courtesy of a 1-2 loss to the Argentines in the last group match played at St. Petersburg stadium.

Speaking on whether he would be available for Nigeria’s outings in the next African Cup of Nations, Mikel said: “We should wait for the Eagles to qualify first.’’

‘‘I hope I can still be around but that will depend on if the team qualify,’’ he said.

On his assessment of the team’s performance in the match, Mikel said: “It was a day we did everything we could but failed to qualify.

‘‘In second half, we played well but luck was not on our side. It is a young team and we will be back in four years’ time.’’

Talking of the welfare situation and administration of the team under him, Mikel said everything was wonderful and exciting.

‘‘We have everything going well for us, the team was fantastic and friendly and the football authorities treated us well.

‘‘Most especially, our travel arrangements were superb and I have never experienced it before,’’ the Eagles’ captain said.
