Watch: Messi and co. were carried after Argentina’s open-top transport march was deserted

The huge crowd, which was estimated by local media to be over four million, completely obstructed the players who won the World Cup final on Sunday in Qatar. As a result, the players were unable to reach the central Obelisco monument as planned.

On Tuesday, Lionel Messi and the rest of Argentina’s World Cup team were transported in helicopters to continue the celebrations as millions of ecstatic fans flooded the streets of Buenos Aires. Due to this, the team’s open-top bus parade had to stop.

The eight-hour project was cut short due to safety concerns, and the players who won Sunday’s Reality Cup final in Qatar were unable to reach the central Obelisco landmark as planned because the hurling swarm, which was estimated by local media to be over 4,000,000 people, completely blocked the course. According to entertainment footage that was posted online, a few fans attempted to board the group’s bus as it passed under a scaffold. “The title holders are flying over the entire course in helicopters because it became difficult to progress forward with land due to the blast of bliss,” official representative Gabriela Cerruti wrote on Twitter. Helicopters were used to transport the players from their parade bus.

Television images showed people in the city and visiting the Obelisco and the surrounding streets to see their returning bosses. “It’s crazy, it’s incredible, and it’s the best thing that you can happen to you in life,” said 25-year-old metalworker Matias Gomez.

“It is a tremendous joy to observe these happy people embracing one another and holding hands. We are all one today. Early on Tuesday, the team had arrived at the airport in Ezeiza. After Messi and his team won the World Cup for the first time in 36 years, a lot of people were holding up flags, banners, and signs around 3 a.m. local time (0600 GMT). They were screaming in joy.

By midday, millions of people had gathered in the city center, and major roads had been closed for the parade. Some of the activities included playing instruments, climbing lampposts or bus stops, and raising banners in honor of Messi and the late icon Diego Maradona.

Roads began to clear after the players took off in helicopters, and some people were disappointed not to see the team.

The capital of Argentina has been celebrating ever since the dramatic victory over France on Sunday in the final in Qatar. The South American nation’s economic issues, which include having one of the highest inflation rates in the world, have been obscured as a result.

With their victory in the penalty shootout, the nation became world champions for the first time since Maradona won the title in 1986 and for the third time overall. The government made Tuesday a national holiday so that fans could celebrate the victory.

On Twitter, President Alberto Fernandez expressed, “I celebrate how individuals rioted to give recognition to our public group.” Millions of Argentines took to the streets in a rare December. We will always keep this in mind.”

As the open-top bus raced through the city, the players and the crowd that surrounded it sang “I CAN’T Cry Any More.” In order for the vehicle to continue its sluggish journey toward the center of town, people were being held back by the police.

However, they ran out of options at some point.

We are unable to greet each Obelisco visitor because of them. “The security agents who escorted us won’t allow us to move forward,” Chiqui Tapia, president of the Argentine Football Association (AFA), tweeted.

“1,000 articulations of disappointment to assist the various top dog players,” he proceeded to say. Thank you so much for your love! We have the world’s best football crew! The cup is right now at home. Messi, 35, consolidated his status as one of the greatest players ever to play the game by winning Argentina’s 4-2 penalty kick victory over France following Argentina’s thrilling 3-3 overtime draw with France. He claimed that it was his final World Cup game, but he wants to play a few more for his country.

In the southern hemisphere during the summer, cars frequently honk their horns in celebration, sometimes giving the impression that the entire nation was throwing a party from Sunday on.

In the city where everything was covered in the “Albiceleste’s” white and blue, Elio Maisares, 25, celebrated. He stated, “There are people lying on the floor who just got up from the previous party to continue partying.”

“Just look at this, everything that has been painted white and light blue.” Along the streets and avenues, “everyone is supporting Argentina,” he stated. “What a technique for crying! It truly stands out and is unique. It’s amazing! Today, yesterday, and the day before yesterday, I wept all day. I can no longer cry!”
