21 Ways The Internet Screamed At Brazil’s World Cup Loss

Brazil knocked Mexico out of the round of 16 in FIFA’s World Cup, securing their spot in the quarterfinals. Latinos around the world grieved the loss of their respective countries and then shifted allegiances to either Brazil.

All in one day, all was lost, but Brazil gave the best game in World Cup history, and the Internet was screaming.

1. Immediately, the Belgian snobbery started taking over the interwebz.

Who knew soccer aficionados were so into “Pretty Little Liars”? Literally every win has churned out this meme.

2. Nobody was allowed to speak of anything else.

“I’m sorry, what? You’re talking about your education? THERE ARE BIGGER ISSUES HERE, TONTA.”

It was an emotional day.

3. Latin tears contributed to rising sea levels this day July 6, 2018.

@terezaivezaj / Twitter

When Miami goes under, we’ll blame the Belgians. Screw their chocolate.

We lost a whole city today.

4. Generations of families came together to weep.

@hayashalabi / Twitter

It is visceral, this pain. Brazil was killing it the first 20 minutes of the game. The emotional rollercoaster began when Belgium scored.

5. But we’re still ride or die, Brazil. ????????

@anoy2003 / Twitter

Well, I mean, most of us…

6. Germany, Argentina, Portugal and Mexico have no f*cks to give.

@SOMEXICAN / Twitter

I mean, that’s all we’re saying. Que te cagas, Brazil.

7. It seems that these colors are debilitating to the Brazil team.

@Omeralvi_ / Twitter

Like, achilles heel, terrible. Like Fabuloso on a Saturday morning. You can’t escape the defeat.

8. Pray that Uganda never plays Brazil. ????????

@Joshs14319615 / Twitter

There are two layers of black, red and yellow, you guys. Plus a rooster? It’ll be a savage loss.

9. The mocking of Brazil was tenfold on Twitter.

@Alwina152 / Twitter

FYI: That is Belgium’s flag, and during the last World Cup, Brazil was booted by Germany in the quarterfinals. This year, however, they didn’t just accept the loss in the second half. They f*cking played like champions.

10. Especially of Neymar. He is the meme King.

@TheSportRag / Twitter

The Internet is making el pobrecito eat all his words. The superstitious in me blames Neymar for being too cocky and dramatic af.

11. Although, some think Neymar brought all the entertainment to the game.

@trangsiihanoi / Twitter

If you create a meme about Neymar, and Neymar doesn’t see it, is it even a meme?

Someone please make sure he sees all of these.

12. The world has mad jokes for Neymar.

@Naijablogger / Twitter

I mean, we hope to see Neymar at this year’s Oscars ceremonies. What’s that shirt say? King of Fútbol or King of Drama?

13. Maybe he’ll win a Grammy, too.

@creativerealens / Twitter

LMFAO, they see me rollin’. Get it? During his game with Mexico, he brought the drama, that’s all.

14. True fans are upset over Brazil’s new drama reputation.

@cowley68 / Twitter

I mean, mostly, it’s that Brazil used to win, and now they lose. Sad.

15. En realidad, Neymar and Coutinho pulled more than their fair share on the team.

@goodgirl_Suku / Twitter

The team honestly could have won if the ref just blew an extra whistle or two, or had an ounce of luck on their side. The played hard.

16. OK, but more importantly, did anyone notice Neymar’s hair cuts?

@USA4EVERBless / Twitter

Truth, I think he actually just had one haircut, but the internet can’t appreciate varied styling, so calláte about it already.

17. Brazil pride will live on for many more World Cup tournaments.

@worldcuprodolfo / Twitter

Look at these animals hold it down with their viejo. Que cute.

18. And whatever Belgium has to say, Brazil has all the comebacks:

@kaypopsta / Twitter

Preach. I don’t even know who to root for in the semifinals. Just not Belgium.

19. Brazil went into the second half at 2-0, and kept fighting.

@Supitzqis / Twitter

And for that, we have all the inspo and fuerte we need to wait for 2022’s victory.

20. Brazil’s performance will be missed in the next few weeks.

@dhivialaxmi / Twitter

In the meantime, Neymar can fully heal his delicate ankle and return to glory, please.

21. The biggest question of all, though:

@andymwhy / Twitter

I have so much side eye right now and I don’t know who to be mad at, but I’m going with the Brazil-Belgium refs.

Nike Signs This 8-Year-Old Soccer Prodigy At Younger Age Than Messi And Neymar

Nike Signs This 8-Year-Old Soccer Prodigy At Younger Age Than Messi And Neymar

Nike has long been known to scout some of the world’s greatest sports talents, especially when it comes to the world of soccer. It began with Neymar, who signed with the multinational corporation at the age of 13. That trend continued with Real Madrid’s Rodrygo, who, at the tender age of 11, became Nike’s youngest-ever affiliated athlete after dazzling at a youth tournament in New York.

But the bar has been raised once again. This time with an 8-year-old player who considered the next great prospect in Brazilian soccer.

Brazilian football prodigy Kauan Basile has signed with Nike at just 8-years-old.

Kauan Basile is just 8-years-old and he’s already playing for the Santos’ U-9 indoor football team. But now he’s just made history as the youngest player ever to sign a deal with Nike.

“I am very happy with the opportunity to play for Santos, as well as the contract. I like to play football,” Kauan Basile told Gazeta Esportiva

According to reports, the contract with Nike is guaranteed over three years, and there’s an option to extend it for two more. He’s now the youngest player in the world to sign with Nike. Even at the end of his contract, Basile will still be younger than both Messi and another ex-Santos kid, Neymar, in signing his first deal at Nike.

Messi put pen to paper on his first Nike contract aged 15, while Neymar was 13.

The kid is generating tons of buzz worldwide.

Basile’s agents, Mengoni Sports, revealed the news of the Nike deal with a proud post on social media. They wrote: “Today Kauan broke the record of being the youngest player in the WORLD by signing a contract with Nike!”

The post went on to add that “He is pure talent! He has football in the soul, in his heart and in his DNA.”

The sports world has reacted with excitement, especially across Brazil where football plays reach God-like status.

Football runs through Basile’s blood.

Like so many of football’s greats, Basile has the tradition of football in his blood. Both his father and great-grandfather both played professionally. His father Andrezinho was on the roster for Corinthians during his playing days.

And his dad couldn’t be more proud of his son going on to such major success, saying he’s ready for superstardom. He said: “He is a player with an absurd will to win. He has a lot of technical quality.”

FIFA21 Releasing ‘El Chavo Del Ocho’ Uniforms To Honor The Icon For Limited Time

FIFA21 Releasing ‘El Chavo Del Ocho’ Uniforms To Honor The Icon For Limited Time

“El Chavo del Ocho” is one of the most iconic shows in the Spanish-language world. The tv show spawned some of the most beloved characters, including the namesake of the show. FIFA21 is getting in on the fun of highlighting the character to honor its 50 years of touching lives.

You can wear a special Chavo del Ocho uniform in FIFA21.

“El Chavo del Ocho” is one of the most culturally important shows in the Spanish-speaking world. The Mexican sitcom gifted us Chavo del 8 and Chilindrina and we are all better for knowing those characters. The show, which ran for almost nine years, is still celebrated and loved today.

The uniforms are available for only a very short time.

FIFA 21 players can access the uniform between Dec. 10 to 13. The outfit isn’t outright free. Players have to accomplish three challenges and will then be granted access to the Chavo del Ocho kit. Who wouldn’t want a chance to play in the Chavo del Ocho kit?

Soccer players who wear the kit in the game are excited to be part of the celebration.

Who wouldn’t want a chance to be part of video game history. It isn’t every day that a video game version of yourself gets to wear an outfit that gives praise to one of the greats. If there was ever a highlight in life, this would definitely be one of them.

Some are thinking of it as a sweet homage to Chespirito.

Roberto Mario “Chespirito” Gómez y Bolaños is responsible for some of Mexico’s most important characters. The actor brought several characters to life on the television but none more iconic than Chavo del Ocho. If it were not for Chespirito, we would have never got to see Chapulin Colorado fight off the bad men or Chavo del Ocho interactions with La Chilindrina.

Who else is getting excited about the debut of these kits?
