Later that day, thousands of fans gathered at a central Buenos Aires Square to celebrate Argentina's win in The World Cup final. President Alberto Fernández declared a national holiday Tuesday, so the country could celebrate the victory.

Crowds gathered at the Obelisk, and one man was seen waving an Argentinian flag from inside a window at the top of the monument.

As of early Tuesday morning, there were no official plans for Fernández or any other political leaders to take part in the celebrations. Despite earlier rumors, that the players would go to government house which was offered up for the celebrations according to Security Minister, Aníbal Fernández.

The World Cup and the success of the Lionel Messi-led squad has brought much-needed good news for a country that has been stuck in economic doldrums for years is suffering one of the world’s highest inflation rates and where almost four in 10 people live in poverty.
