The defeat of Argentina against Saudi Arabia in their first game of Qatar 2022 unleashed the search for responsibilities both in football and extra sports. On social media, the preferred scapegoat was the former Argentine president and head of the FIFA Foundation, Mauricio Macriwho had a preferential audience to convey his encouragement and energy to Lionel Scaloni’s team. Something similar to what happened with Carlos Menem in the opening match of Italia 90when Argentina fell to Cameroon.
On Twitter, his photo sitting in front of a group of men dressed in robes and kufiyyas circulated with various captions. and nicknames that alluded to the fulfillment of the law of attraction between the leader of Together for Change and bad fortune. To the point that this relationship became a hashtag: #MacriMufa up by definition:
“The stone of Tandil” was another of the nicknames that the international exponent of the Argentine right received, in reference to his city of birth in the province of Buenos Aires.
But that was not the only nickname. There were also others less allusive and with a desire for scientific verification:
The bad luck of the former Argentine president had begun with his arrival in the host country of the World Cup, when the private airline in which he traveled lost his suitcases and he was left waiting for a long time in front of the conveyor belt of the international airport.
As he said on his arrival in the Asian country, his stay there will be for a month. So it is to be expected that he will witness the group stage matches in which the Argentine National Team will try to qualify for the next phase of the tournament. And although his agenda was not officially reported, he will also participate in various activities together with the president of FIFA, the Swiss Gianni Infantino.

After the unease for the fall of the Selection against Saudi Arabia, the condition of “mufa” of the former president Mauricio Macriwho attended the lusail stadium to see the failed debut of the Argentine team.
But that was not all.
