And he did it a few minutes after the end of the match outside the broadcast of the program, in a video who posted El Chiringuito’s account on his channel from YouTube.

Far from his critical stance that he had shown in the last game, Rodríguez continued to claim victory for the Argentines in a sarcastic way.

“But man, recognize that thanks in part -also to Messi- but in part to the Chiringuito, Argentina will be in the big final of the world championship. As I knew that you had to shake the shaker a bitthe tree, so that the team my friend scaloni will be planted in the final of the World Cup”.

Finally he concluded: “And now the most important thing remains: we will shake Argentina up again so that it proclaims itself world champion. Thanks to me, Argentina is at the World Cup, and you know it”, he concluded.
