Argentina Olympic team robbed in Puebla – delegation chief

The Argentina Olympic team’s hotel rooms were broken into on Thursday night in Puebla, Mexico, and money and personal items were stolen, Argentina federation delegate Claudio “Chiqui” Tapia confirmed.

Argentina and Mexico’s Olympic football teams played to a 0-0 draw during a friendly in Puebla on Thursday night and Tapia said the players realized what had happened upon returning to the hotel postmatch.

“No one was hurt because no one was in the rooms at the time, but we realized there had been a robbery when we returned to the hotel from the stadium and now we are looking into finding out who was responsible for the crime,” Tapia said. “When we returned to the hotel to change for dinner we realized that everything was all messed up. We were missing personal items and money. Someone must be held responsible.”

Argentina had trained in the United States before traveling to Mexico for the friendly. They face Portugal, Algeria and Honduras in the group stage in Brazil, beginning Aug. 4. Defending Olympic champions Mexico open against Germany on Aug. 4 and compete in a group that also features Fiji and South Korea.
