Portugal have been eliminated from the FIFA World Cup tournament after Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani scored double for Uruguay in a spectacular match. The hilarious response to the results came quickly from football fans around the world.

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.
