With the former leading 1-0 with around five minutes to go, Argentine coverage of the match decided to focus on a pitchside cockroach.

The commentator on TyC Sports simply said: “La Cucaracha.

And the moment has baffled fans online.

One scathingly wrote: “Olympic athletes competing at a high level? Not interested. Cockroach waddling? Si.”

A second joked: “When you get a sports media job, but you’re not that into sports.

And a third sighed: “That roach did not need that much screen time.

Although a fourth added: “Give this little guy a gold medal.

When the coverage did get back to showing the game, Argentina went on to win 3-0.

They have since beaten China 3-2 and Japan 2-1.

But they fell this morning to Australia, perdiendo 2-0.
