Cruz Azul curse strikes Argentina in 3-0 defeat to Croatia

As you probably know already, there is a running joke on the internet about Cruz Azul fans in Liga MX. It is more like a funny theory, like the one where if Aaron Ramsey scores a goal a celebrity dies.

Basically, if a Cruz Azul fan is spotted supporting a certain team, that teams is destined for failure. Well, in the middle of Argentina’s debacle against Croatia, the camera caught the glimpse of somebody wearing a Cruz Azul jersey among the Argentina faithful.

Obviously, this isn’t the first time this happens, and even the same Mexico national team has suffered from said joke. This has prompted many to take extra precaution, including pulling the same joke on other teams. A few days ago against Germany, somebody got a German fan to wear a Cruz Azul jersey.

It’s all fun and games, unless you are a Cruz Azul fan (or an Argentina fan for that matter).
