- Argentina’s WAGs are having a horrible time at the World Cup in Qatar.
- A number were forced to move hotels due to power outages, while one found glass in her drink at a club.
- The team itself, however, is enjoying life in the Middle East, having reached the final of the tournament.
The families of some Argentine soccer players are going through a tough time during the World Cup in Qatar, suffering power outages in their hotel and even finding glass in one of their drinks.
MailOnline reported on Thursday that a number of women were forced to flee the five-star Waterfront Hotel late Wednesday night after the building was cut off.
They and their children had to be transported to an alternative luxury hotel on an island in the event of an emergency move.
Among the group were Jorgelina Cardoso, wife of former Manchester United star Angel Di Maria; Agustina Gandolfo, wife of Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez; and Linda Raff, wife of Alejandro Gomez.
A source close to the group told MailOnline: ‘Argentinians have paid a lot of money and don’t expect to have to sit in the dark in their hotel rooms – and there were also security issues. .”
Days before the blackout, Gandolfo was taken to hospital after finding shards of glass in her drink while at a club, according to MailOnline.
The 26-year-old was out to celebrate Argentina’s semi-final victory over Croatia.
She sought medical help fearing she had drunk part of the glass, but doctors who examined her said she had not sustained any injuries.
According to MailOnline, some locals accused Gandolfo of crashing the glass into her own drink, to which she angrily responded on Instagram.
“A shame we have the complaint and witnesses at the club,” she said in an Instagram story.
While some wives and girlfriends may be going through a tough time in Qatar, the Argentinian team is going through the opposite experience.
Lionel Scaloni’s side will face France in the World Cup final on Sunday, in what will be Lionel Messi’s last international appearance and his last chance to win a World Cup.
Messi and the team reached the final in 2014; however, they were beaten by Germany.
