‘Argentina Will Be Thrashed 5-0’– Brazil President Bolsonaro Boasts Ahead Copa America Final

Brazil president Jair Bolsonaro is confident that the Selecao will hammer rivals Argentina 5-0 in the Copa America final on Sunday.

In a meeting with several South American leaders, Bolsonaro teased his Argentina counterpart, Alberto Fernandez, ahead of the final between the two teams.

“The only rivalry [between Brazil and Argentina] will be next Saturday at Maracana,” said Bolsonaro, who subsequently made the five-finger gesture.

“Brazil will win 5-0.”

The South American derby will be Lionel Messi’s opportunity to finally win a major trophy with Argentina, as he has not managed to lead the Albiceleste to a title despite his successful Barcelona career.

He captained Argentina to the final of the 2014 FIFA World Cup which they lost 1-0 to Germany.

They qualified for the finals of the 2015 and 2016 Copa America but lost on penalties to Chile on both occasions.
