Sports commentators quickly compared the event with the poor performance of Argentina from the Australian national anthem year earlier.
In 2014, Argentine singer Marcelo Zelada forgot the words to the Australian national anthem during the Rugby Championship match between hosts Argentina and the Wallabies of Australia.
The event made headlines at the time and is considered one of the greatest things in the history of musical sports performance.
