The famous saying: “there are, there are” is more valid than ever. But, where do the key Twitter witches in Argentina’s victories come from? The truth is that the madness for witches broke out before the game in Mexico when the Argentine team needed to win so as not to be left out of the World Cup in Qatar. It was then that a great movement was generated on Twitter so that all the witches present on the social network would ‘freeze’ some footballers from the opposing team.
