Given the state of play in South America’s World Cup qualifiers, Brazilians have taken to social media and requested that their country loses to Chile to wind up Argentina.
Using the hashtag #EntregaBrasil and #EntregaProChile (Surrender Brazil, Surrender to Chile), several Twitter users have asked their country to lose against Chile in order to complicate Argentina’s hopes of making the World Cup.
In addition to winning themselves, the Albiceleste would like Chile to drop points in order to avoid a play-off against New Zealand.
The online campaign started in Brazil on Saturday and began trending later that same day across the country.
However, other users from countries such as Chile, Colombia, and even Mexico have expressed either their support for the motion or anger with it, as have several Argentine users.
