This should kick off the soccer World Cup.
Argentina’s players displayed a banner in their final warm-up game for the world’s biggest tournament claiming “Las Malvinas son Argentinas (The Falklands are Argentine).” The political gesture could bring trouble for Argentina from the game’s governing body, FIFA, and risks reigniting the long-running dispute between Argentina and England on the eve of the tournament, according to The Mirror.
Argentina claims ownership of the islands, which are just 300 miles off its coast and are a British territory. The two countries went to war in 1982, which left over 900 people dead, the majority of them Argentinean.
Both countries are still at loggerheads over who owns the islands.
The banner was unveiled before Argentina’s 2-0 over Slovenia.
