World reacts to Croatia stunning Brazil: Best memes and Tweets

Croatia took down Brazil to advance to the World Cup semifinals for the second consecutive World Cup. The world reacted, and it was hilarious as always.

It went past extra time and into a penalty kick shootout between Brazil and Croatia locked at a goal a piece in the World Cup quarterfinals.

In a stunner, after 120 minutes of play and the shootout, Brazil knocked the ball off the goalpost and lost out to Croatia, eliminating Brazil from World Cup contention and moving Croatia along to the semifinals.

It’s the second straight World Cup that Croatia has advanced to the semifinals, and the second consecutive Cup that Brazil has been eliminated in the quarterfinals. In 2018, they lost 2-1 to Belgium. Though Brazil has won the Cup five times, they haven’t done so since 2002.

The game was remarkable, with no goals being scored until extra time when Neymar got the first of the game. Bruno Petkovic scored Croatia’s lone goal less than 10 minutes later.

Twitter has reactions to Croatia beating Brazil

Earlier in the week, Brazil had a cat removed from the press conference area:

The memes suggested removing the cat had cursed Brazil and tilted the odds in Croatia’s favor. I suppose we can’t technically disprove this:

American sports fans compared the kick off the goalpost to the infamous Chicago Bears double doink incident from a few years ago:

Bettors who had Brazil going all the way have to be furious at that performance:

Next up, Croatia takes on the winner of Portugal and Morocco. Assuming Portugal advances, Croatia may have to pull off another massive upset to advance to the World Cup final.
