Elisa Montero is the wife of Argentina manager and former player Lionel Scaloni. She will be cheering for Argentina as they take on the Netherlands in the quarter-final fixture of the FIFA World Cup, which is a must-win game for the South American nation if they have to keep the dream of winning the World Cup alive. 

A lot of onus will be on Lionel Scaloni as he guides Argentina in a World Cup campaign that is most likely the last of their star man Lionel Messi. Having lost to Saudi Arabia in their opening fixture but managing a win against Mexico, Argentina now needs to win the match against the Netherlands to move to the semis.

However, a loss would mean that Lionel Messi’s last FIFA World Cup run will come to a sad end.
