Leo Messi & Cristiano Ronaldo: Everyone makes the same jokes after World Cup exits

Argentina & Portugal

It was another incredible day of football at the 2018 World Cup.

Is this the best World Cup in living memory?

France started the last-16 action with a stunning 4-3 win over Argentina. The scoreline slightly flattered Argentina, as they were largely outplayed in the match.

Kylian Mbappe stole all the headlines with a brace. The 19-year-old has three goals at this World Cup.

As for Leo Messi, he again failed to score in the game. Messi exits the World Cup with just one goal to his name.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored four times in Russia this summer. But the Real Madrid start is also on his way home from Russia.

Uruguay beat European champions Portugal 2-1 on Saturday night.

Edinson Cavani was the hero for Uruguay with a brilliant double. Pepe scored for Portugal.

Who’d have thunk it?!

On the same day at the World Cup, Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were both sent packing.

The Real Madrid and Barcelona stars will both now be heading for vacations with their families are long seasons.

Will this be the last time we see Messi and Ronaldo at a World Cup?

Or will the superstars make one final appearance in Qatar in four years time?
