The Argentina-Brazil rivalry is getting downright nasty

And they're not even playing each other yet
If Brazil and Argentina both win their semi-final games Tuesday and Wednesday, this year's World Cup final will undoubtedly produce one of the most intense fan interactions in history.

That is, if we judge from the way they've already been acting.

The historically heated rivalry has been raised to a whole other level since Brazil's quarterfinal match against Colombia when Brazil's star player, Neymar da Silva Santos Junior, broke his back, putting him out of the tournament. A video has been posted online of Argentinian fans holding up a spine and chanting in Spanish, "Here we have Neymar's back!" The uploader of the video supports the fans, commenting that the rivalry is only in soccer and that there is no other source of hostility toward the "brother country."
