After the success of “Brazil, Tell Me How it Feels?” Argentina fans are singing a new song on the beaches of Brazil in preparation for the World Cup final on July 13 between the Argentine team and Germany. The song is “What’s Wrong Brazuca?”

Here’s what you need to know about this latest chant:


1. The Songs Calls on Brazilians to Remember the 1950 World Cup Final

In the lyrics of the song, Argentina fans tease Brazil about its infamous defeat to Uruguay in the 1950 World Cup final, the last time the tournament was held in the samba nation. The translated lyrics in full read:

What’s wrong brazuca? Yet you still waiting …
What’s wrong brazuca? In the favela are all crying …
The years go by, you remember the World 50 …
They are all ‘shit’, you afraid to pass back …
Because Messi is wearing the crown, ohoh …
And the magic of his left hand that love, ohoh …
On top of Maradona acordás you …
I know it hurts, it hurts; but this Cup is Argentina …

In Spanish the song goes:

¿Qué te pasa brazuca? Todavía seguís esperando…
¿Qué te pasa brazuca? En la favela están todos llorando…
Van pasando los años, te acordás del Mundial del 50…
Están todo ‘cagados’, tenés miedo que pase de vuelta…
Porque Messi tiene puesta la corona, ohoh…
Y la magia de su zurda que enamora, ohoh…
Para colmo te acordás de Maradona…
Sé que te duele, que te lastima; pero esta Copa, es de ARGENTINA


2. It Rubs Salt in Brazilian Wounds After the Semifinals

After Brazil lost to Germany 7-1 in a record-breaking World Cup semifinal defeat, invading Argentina fans on the beaches of the Copacabana are riling up the locals even more with this song. The words of Messi “wearing the crown” are especially poignant considering the horrific injury suffered by Neymar in the World Cup quarter final against Colombia.

3. The Song Uses the Term ‘Brazuca’

The term “Brazuca” is a slang-term for the Brazilian way of life, it describe Brazilian’s pride in their way of life. The Argentine fans are throwing it back in their face by using it as a collective term for the Brazilian people.


4. Brazilian Fans Have Tried to Respond

There is a new Brazilian chant being sung, although they don’t really have anywhere to sing it except the World Cup third place playoff. Their song states that Pele has more World Cups than the entire nation of Argentina, which is true, just irrelevant.


5. Argentina Plays Germany in the World Cup Final on July 13

On July 13, Argentina play Germany in the World Cup final. It’s a repeat of the 1990 final when Germany won a snoozefest with a late penalty from Andreas Breheme. The two teams met in the 1986 final as well, that time Diego Maradona led Argentina to a victory. More recently, it’s been Germany who held the upper hand, in 2006 and 2010, Argentina have been eliminated by the Germans. So it’s all up for grabs this Sunday in the Maracana.
