Argentina has mocked the UK after its latest World Cup win. The team yesterday beat Croatia by three goals to none.

This, led by Lionel Messi, celebrated with a new song.

The chant emerged before the start of the World Cup and features a rant against Britain’s rule of the Falkland Islands.

It features the lines: “We have the dream of becoming world champions;

I’m like that, I’m Argentine, f*****g Englishmen I don’t forget Malvinas.

“I’m like that, I come to cheer you on, I follow Argentina everywhere.”

Islas Malvinas is the Argentinian title for the Falklands, the claim to which it believes it holds.

The chant could be heard not just on the stands but also in the Argentinian dressing room, according to Perfil.

This paper reported: “Through the chants, the players of the national team showed their side as proud supporters of the blue and white team.

King’s Liberty Society President Andreas Koureas responded to the song in a post on Twitter, insisted this will make no difference.

He wrote: “Sing all you want, the Falkland Islands are rightfully British.”

Journalist Marc Ward added: “I don’t get the jubilant Falklands chants, given the failed attempt to take the islands by force in 1982, you’d think they’d not keep reminding everyone.”
