And the song seems to have caught on back home, with it flying up the charts to become the most played song on Spotify in the country.
Globo report the song, known as “Muchachos”, was played more than 500,000 times in a single day.
Defender Nicolas Otamendi filmed shirtless Argentina players singing “Ingleses putos de Malvinas no me olvido”, which has a rough translation of “f***ing English in the Falklands, I don’t forget”.
Lisandro Martinez and Julian Alvarez, who play their football in England at Manchester United and City respectively, could be seen joining in too.
It followed on from the nation reaching their sixth World Cup final, and a second with captain Lionel Messi.
The song has become popular throughout the tournament, picking up more and more pace as they have progressed deeper.
It also fires a dig towards South American rivals Brazil, who they beat in the Copa America last year.
The full chant goes: “Brazilian, what happened, the five-time champions screwed up.
“Messi went to Rio and he left with the cup.
“We are the Argentine band and we will always cheer them on, because we have the dream of being the world champion.
“I’m like that, I am Argentinian, f***ing English in the Falklands, I don’t forget.
“I’m like that, I encourage you, I follow Argentina everywhere.”
Instead, Polish official Szymon Marciniak will be in charge of the game.
It is believed Fifa’s appointment system say that ensuring neutrality is deemed as a top priority and means that English referees would not be put on matches involving Argentina and vice versa.
