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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Look at these animals hold it down with their viejo. Que cute.
18. And whatever Belgium has to say, Brazil has all the comebacks:

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.

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.

In the meantime, Neymar can fully heal his delicate ankle and return to glory, please.
21. The biggest question of all, though:

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.
