Argentina managed to win their final group stage game of the World Cup against Nigeria 2-1. And with that, the South American side avoided a humiliating exit and progressed to the knockout rounds.

And after Marcos Rojo scored the 86th-minute goal to tilt the scoreline in favour of Argentina(2-1), the former World Cup winner lost his mind and was even seen pointing his middle finger to someone.
