Terrible Argentina fans burn coffin with Kylian Mbappe’s face in World Cup trophy parade

Terrible Argentina fans burn coffin with Kylian Mbappe’s face in World Cup trophy parade

A viral video shared on social media on Tuesday showed a group of Argentine fans holding up a coffin which contained a cross and a picture of France’s talisman Kylian Mbappe.

Around 4 million Argentines turned out for the open-top bus parade through the streets of Buenos Aires, though it had to be halted for safety reasons due to some fans attempting to jump onto the bus from above.

Players then looked over the city in helicopters instead.

The streets of Buenos Aires and all over the country celebrated the FIFA World Cup captured by Argentina in Qatar after defeating France in penalty kicks (4-2) on Sunday.

While the city was in a festive mood, some fans decided to take it too far and opted to burn a coffin with the face of Kylian Mbappe even though it was the 23-year-old who scored a hat-trick and converted his penalty kick during the matchup.

It was set alight as fans jumped up and down and chanted. The clip was posted by Get French Football news, with the caption: “Argentinians with a lovely 24th birthday present for Kylian Mbappé here.”

Argentina fans are known for being uber passionate when it comes to football but some feel as though a mark was overstepped when it came to their Mbappe gesture.

Mbappe scored a hat-trick in the World Cup final, the first to do so since Geoff Hurst in 1966 – and yet he still ended up on the losing side.

He also put another penalty past Emiliano Martinez in the shoot-out, though misses from Kingsley Coman and Aurelien Tchouameni meant the trophy went to Argentina.

Martinez, also in an unsportsmanlike manner, trolled Mbappe after the game by asking his teammates to have a “minute of silence” for the PSG superstar.

The Aston Villa goalkeeper went a step further at the parade as he was seen clutching a baby top with Mbappe’s face on it.
