Fans all say same thing as footage emerges showing Dutch players trying to put off Argentina in dramatic shootout loss | The Sun

ARGENTINA'S World Cup win over Holland descended into chaos during the penalty shootout – after threatening to boil over throughout.

Footage has emerged of the Dutch players trying to put off the Argentina stars before they took their penalties.

After Virgil van Dijk and Steven Berghuis missed Holland's first two spot-kicks, Teun Koopmeiners and Wout Weghorst scored for the Dutch.

And Weghorst, who dramatically netted twice late on to send the game to extra-time, was captured trying to put off Enzo Fernandez as the Dutchman walked back after scoring his penalty.

Footage posted to Twitter shows the striker waiting for Fernandez on the edge of the box, before walking right up to the midfielder as he strolled to the spot.

Denzel Dumfries was also seen coming away from the halfway line and walking up to Fernandez to exchange words with the Argentina ace as he walked up to take his kick.

Whatever was said appeared to have worked, as the Manchester United linked Fernandez sent his effort wide of the post.

Holland went on to eventually loose the shootout despite Fernandez's miss – and fans reckoned they got what was coming to them for their mind games.

One wrote on Twitter: "They were trying by all means to get into their heads. Such disgusting behaviour."

Another added: "Good thing they lost!"

A third said: "Argentina's reaction after L[autaro] Martinez scoring the winning penalty is justified."

While other fans suggested Holland were simply playing Argentina at their own game.

But Dumfries tried the exact same tactic next time around for Lautaro Martinez's decisive kick.

Despite being club team-mates at Inter Milan, Dumfries broke away from the Holland huddle to try and put Martinez off.

This time it didn't work, as the striker netted the penalty to send Argentina through to the semi-finals.

Argentina's players celebrated right in the faces of the heartbroken Dutch stars following Martinez's crucial kick.

Dumfries meanwhile was sent off after the shootout.
