Argentina paid special attention to Bangladesh during the Qatar World Cup in December last year. Claudio Rosenweig, Undersecretary of the Foreign Policy Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country, said that he is thinking about opening an embassy in Dhaka again to strengthen commercial-political relations with Bangladesh.

People from all levels of the country were overwhelmed by the numerous fans and supporters of the Argentina football team and the country's star Lionel Messi in Bangladesh. This Argentina love of the people of Bangladesh is also revealed in their media. Social media plays a big role in this.

After Argentina won the World Cup football title in December, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina sent a letter to the country's President Alberto Fernandez congratulating him.

In the letter, she wrote, "On behalf of the people of Bangladesh and myself, my heartiest congratulations to you and the friendly people of the Republic of Argentina and the winning team of the 2022 FIFA World Cup on the great victory of Argentine football."
