MEXICO – Argentina’s Olympic football team complained that cash and electronics were stolen from its players hotel rooms while they were playing a friendly in Mexico on Friday.
Argentina Football Association (AFA) vice president Claudio Tapia said the theft took place when Mexico and the South American team played to a 0-0 draw in the central city of Puebla on Thursday night.
“When we returned at 11:40 pm and went up to the rooms, we realised that they had been robbed,” Tapia said, without specifying how much money was taken.
Later on, the Mexican Football Federation said in a statement that an agreement had finally been reached between the AFA, the Camino Real hotel and an insurance firm to compensate the Argentine delegation.
