Argentina v Brazil – Class Tribute To Jonas Gutierrez
There aren’t many bigger matches, if any, than Argentina v Brazil but it was a tribute to Jonas Gutierrez that took centre stage.
While all the talk pre-match was of the match-up between Neymar and Messi, the Argentinian team made sure it was their support for Jonas that took the headlines.
The actual match saw Brazil regain a lot of self-respect after the World Cup humiliation against Germany, two goals from Diego Tardelli and a Messi penalty saved, gave Brazil a 2-0 win.
Pre-match, Jonas Gutierrez’ Argentinian teammates unfurled their uplifting message to the Newcastle winger.
The banner reading ‘Fuerza Jonas’, meaning ‘Strength Jonas’, as he continues his fightback against cancer.
