The Selecao fans were in a celebratory mood after their arch-rivals lost on Thursday night....

The rivalry between the two South American powerhouses - Brazil and Argentina - is a storied one. The two countries have consistently produced some of the best footballers in the world and have fostered a fascinating footballing rivalry. 

There is always interest in how the other team is doing during tournaments like Copa America and World Cups. One often sees celebration from one set of fans if the other team falls to a loss in their game and it was no different in Russia

Both Brazil and Argentina drew their opening games at the 2018 World Cup. However, Argentina fell to a demoralising 3-0 defeat at the hands of Croatia at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium which has left their qualification hopes hanging by a thread. 

Lionel Messi and co. cut sorry figures as Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric led the Croatians to the Round of 16 on the back of a scintillating second-half performance. 

Interestingly, Brazil fans in St. Petersburg, where the Selecao will take on Costa Rica on Friday, were in a celebratory mood thanks to their rivals' loss.
