It's no secret that Argentinians love soccer. This group of Argentinians traveled more than 9,300 miles to Hungary specifically to take part in a soccer match for lawyers. They won a trophy and decided to share their victory with another Argentinian soccer fan: Pope Francis.
'We could have never imagined what we have experienced today... It was a unique moment, with a lot of nerves and anxiety. We are very happy to have completed our journey this way. First we won a competition that was really important for the team and then this is the perfect end to a great trip.'
Their original idea was celebrating their victory close to the Pope. What they never expected was that they would actually celebrate it with him.
'We were that he walked up to. We took pictures, and he kindly greeted us and was interested in knowing who we were. We're totally excited about this. We gave him a present, candy from our region, and he gave us his blessing.'
They will visit Paris before returning to Argentina with a lot of stories to tell. The most special one will be their celebration with Pope Francis.
