Minute's silence for Argentina after World Cup defeat to Croatia

The reaction to Argentina's dismal World Cup defeat to Croatia hasn't exactly been sympathetic in the local press, though some outlets appear to have taken it worse than others.

Indeed, the presenters and pundits on television channel TyC Sports held an actual minute's silence for the death of the national team after the game.

Live from their studio in Moscow, the TyC Sports panel collectively bowed their heads and stood in sombre silence as the six men attempted to process the dreadful performance they had just witnessed.

A little over the top perhaps, but we can certainly understand the sentiment.
