Argentina defeated Croatia 2-1 at Upton Park, with West Ham fans flocking to the stadium to see former icon Carlos Tevez.
The goalscorer was making his international return for his country after a three year exile, and came off the bench for the final 20 minutes of the victory.
While his every touch was cheered, that of one of his teammates, Erik Lamela was booed roundly, as a star of West Ham's London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

West Ham fans booing Lamela at the Argentina game. Didn't hear them booing Fazio. Not worth their while?— Tim Vickery (@Tim_Vickery) November 12, 2014
Argentina won the game 2-1, with Lionel Messi scoring the winner from the penalty spot.
Tottenham's Lamela had spoken ahead of the game of his pride at representing his country, but even he may have been taken aback at having his every touch jeered by the crowd.
