The passion that the recently finished FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 unleashed in the fans left behind an endless number of false promises such as getting a tattoo, cutting or dyeing their hair, stopping drinking and even giving their salary or bonus to their wives if their teams won the most important matches or, failing that, if the Selection of their choice was crowned world champion.
However, there are those who do not promise it and simply do it, like the testimony of this young man, who, in the midst of the euphoria of the World Cup and in an overflow of joy to see that Argentina had been world champion, in full celebration of thousands of Argentine fans, he knelt down and asked his girlfriend to marry him. The moment was shared on social networks and soon went viral.
In the midst of the celebrations caused by the triumph of the Argentine soccer team in the Qatar 2022 World Cup, in the Pedernera square, located in one of the streets of Villa Mercedes, in the province of San Luis, Argentina, thousands of people witnessed the tender moment in which a man identified as Matías Massa asked his girlfriend Tamara Rocha to marry him, a promise he had made in case his country won the Cup.
As the couple narrated in an interview for the Republic Journal, they have been together for four years, although their courtship only lasted three, since they currently live together and assure that they only lack the title of spouse. Despite the fact that Matías had already proposed three times, Tamara always told him that it was not the time yet, that when she was ready, she would tell him, so when she asked him, he had the luxury of rejecting her. Well, I had other plans.
The World Cup was a great joy, but I would have asked him anyway because we are very happy together. At first, I thought that if Argentina won the 2021 Copa América, I would get married, but it was early and I aimed a little higher. So I made him a promise to do it if we won the World Cup.
– Matias Massa
Although the boy assures that his plans were to ask her to marry him if Argentina won the Copa América in 2021, he preferred to wait for the World Cup, so he took advantage of the fact that the National Team led by Lionel Messi managed to win the third star to, in the middle of the celebration, kneel in the middle of thousands of fans and ask him the long-awaited question. Proposal to which the girl answered “yes” and both cried with emotion.
The young man asked for a ring over the Internet, but since it did not arrive on time, he requested one from those present in the caravan celebrating the victory of Argentina, so that the moment would be much more official. The moment moved not only the couple, but all those present who did not hesitate to capture the moment of the happy marriage proposal.
