Just when you thought Argentina’s World Cup preparations couldn’t get any weirder they just about did.

The team have flew out to Russia on Saturday in a private jet belonging to the Rolling Stones. Because, why not?

Players including Sergio Aguero also posted pictures of the team on board the plane and on their way to Russia.

Apparently Argentina have only borrowed the plane and once they’ve arrived it will return to the Rolling Stones who need it for their current European tour.
