Argentina fans steal the show with deafening chant before Croatia showdown

Despite Argentina stumbling to a disappointing 1-1 draw against Iceland in their World Cup opener, it doesn't appear to have had any noticeable negative effect on the mood of their fans.

Ahead of the Albiceleste's second group game against Croatia, hundreds of supporters congregated in a shopping mall next to the stadium in Nizhny Novgorod for a prematch sing song.

Indeed, it wasn't long before the decibel level was ramped up even further as the fans continued to chant in unison.

"So loud. Will have that song in my head all day," said Independent journalist Miguel Delaney as he filmed the dizzying scenes.

With fervent support like that roaring them on, how can Lionel Messi and his cohorts possibly fail to overturn Croatia and get their Group D qualification quest back on the right track.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
