Uruguay defeated Portugal 2-1 in the second 2018 FIFA World Cup round of 16 match in Sochi on Saturday, while earlier France had defeated Argentina 4-3 leaving the tournament without two football legends — Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Fans around the world who were hoping to see the titans fighting against each other started meming hard on Twitter after the Argentina — Uruguay match ended.
Of course, no meme explosion is complete without a little bit of politics:
Some people were impressed by Uruguay performance, giving special credit to Edinson Cavani who scored double for his team.
But many just expressed their hopes for more good games, wondering what's going to happen next after two strong contestants were eliminated from the tournament.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russia.
