Fans, volunteers and skaters at MRDWC have raised over £1000 ($1700) for Argentina after hearing that the team’s funds had run out during the tournament.
El Pibe, the jammer who has won a legion of new fans, even had to sell one of the shirts he’s been playing in to buy food yesterday.
As word got round a red cowboy hat was passed around the audience towards the end of their game against Australia with people throwing in coins and notes galore.
At the last count they’d raised over £1081.07 (plus €43.20 and $20.45) in cash
