Pablo Zabaleta Takes Subdued Selfie of Bashed Face After Argentine Victory

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterJuly 9, 2014

Poor Pablo Zabaleta. All he wanted to do was post your standard I-just-made-the-World-Cup-Final selfie

Surely, he was still jovial after Argentina advanced 4-2 on penalties after a 0-0 draw with the Netherlands. 

But after getting bloodied by Dirk Kuyt during the match, he decided to take a decidedly more subdued one. 

At least the blue wig is completely on point.
