Videos circulate through social networks in which a group of “fans” who wear the jerseys of both Mexico and Argentina are seen fighting in the Corniche area (a Malecón-type avenue) where fans can circulate on foot . So far the identity of the subjects and the reasons for this fight are unknown.
The subjects insulted each other, made signs and exchanged some blows, but as seen there were no major injuries. For these events, the Qatari public order authorities were not present,
-neither from the Mexican National Guard who came to assist the Mexican fans- other fans had to intervene to defuse the situation, although there were others who only recorded the events with their cell phones.

No detainees were reported, nor were people transferred to any medical institution.
The Argentine fans, who believe that their team with Lio Messi at the helm is the ideal one to lift the cup, comes from the doldrums after the surprise that Saudi Arabia gave them with that 2-1 . The Argentine captain has said that have confidence and assure you will win the next two matches . For their part, the Mexicans are in good spirits after enduring Lewandowski’s attack, although its result was a goalless draw this meeting gives them hope of competing with the South American squad and settling the two eliminations in 2006 and 2010.
