The wife of Argentina winger Ángel Di María has rounded on the Albiceleste's detractors in the wake of Thursday's 3-0 defeat to Brazil in World Cup qualifying.
The Paris Saint-Germain man was among the chief culprits identified by an enraged Argentinian press after the loss, which has left the team facing an uphill battle to make the 2018 finals in Russia.
Argentina struggling to reach tournament
After 11 games, Edgardo Bauza's men lie sixth in the South American standings, two places below the automatic qualification spots and one off a play-off berth.
And in a post on her Instagram profile, Jorgelina Cardoso sought to encourage her husband ahead of Argentina's next match, which sees them take on Colombia at home on Tuesday, and slammed the side's critics.
"If you don't like it..."
"You don't have to follow them [the Argentina national team]," she declared, adding: "If you don't like it go and watch the Discovery Channel!"
"When Argentinians learn that you can't always win and we can't always be the best, we'll be better people," Cardoso concluded.
Vamos mi amorrrrrr!!! Nadie está obligado a seguirlos ni a bancarlos! Al que no le guste que mire Discovery! Y al que los banca en esta malísima etapa que están pasando GRACIAS! Esas fuerzas son las que les llegan y suman! Adelante! Con la frente en alto! Al fin y al cabo es sólo FÚTBOL! Cuando el argentino aprenda que no siempre se gana y que no siempre somos los mejores, recién ahí seremos mejores personas. Yo no soy una argentina que solo te aplaude en las victorias. TE AMO EN LOS BUENOS MOMENTOS Y MÁS AÚN EN LOS MALOS! Orgullosa de vos siempre!
