Double Exit! Messi, Ronaldo Crash out of World Cup

On the same day, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were knocked out of the FIFA 2018 World Cup as Argentina fell to France 4-3 and Portugal lost 2-1 to Uruguay.

The heavyweights were among the pre-tournament favorites to lead their Countries to the World Cup glory in Russia, but the second-round was as far as their brilliance could carry the teams.

First it was Messi and Argentina who were found out by France; though the South American’s had struggled in the tournament.


They were pounded, although the result does not reflect the result.


On the day, it wasn’t Messi who shone, rather French youngster, Kylian Mbappe netted a brace to help Les Blues reach teh quarter-final.


In the other fixture on the day, Portugal were outmaneuvered by a determined Uruguay side propelled by a Edison Cavani brace; either side of Pepe’s second half goal.


Until Saturday’s defeat, Ronaldo had scored four goals in the tournament – Messi had one.
