Argentina native Andrés Cantor couldn’t help himself after his home country’s squad scored their most important victory of this World Cup run.
On the brink of elimination, anything but a win would have knocked Argentina out of the World Cup in disappointing fashion. First, it was Lionel Messi netting his first World Cup goal on a long run in 14th minute.
Cantor can take it from there:
Victor Moses converted a penalty kick in the 51st minute to bring Nigeria even with the powerhouse Argentina. Then, tied 1-1 in the 86th minute, Marcos Rojo’s right foot gave Argentina the lead off a beautiful cross into the box.
Cantor lost his mind. Again:
In a must-win, Argentina did just that. They will advance to face France in the round of 16.
We can only hope that Argentina stays alive so Andres Cantor gives us more gems like this.
