World Cup Social Media Roundup: Day 15

Cheers to social media for the entertainment!

The last day of group stage play led to Senegal's elimination on the FIFA Fair Play points rule, and the afternoon featured one of the most boring games of the tournament, although it happened to have a great goal and an even better celebration.

Senegal vs. Colombia

James left midway through the first half and despite Senegal's overall ability to carry play, Colombia got a goal and stormed to the top of the group. Senegal fell victim to an unfortunate circumstance as they were sent home on yellow cards.

Japan vs. Poland

Poland was already eliminated coming into this game but managed to jump ahead in the second half, putting Japan's knockout round hopes in jeopardy. What followed, especially in the final 10 minutes, was a brand of soccer that while strategic, enraged the internet due to the two teams apparent "agreement" to just let the game end that way to prevent Senegal from advancing. 

Belgium vs. England 

These were two B teams and the game was a snooze. If it wasn't for a beautiful goal from Adnan Januzaj and an even better celebration from Michy Batshuayi, this game would have been the worst of the tournament. Belgium came out with a 1-0 win and a date with Japan in the Round of 16.

Tunisia vs. Panama 

Did this game feature two teams that were already eliminated from the tournament? Sure! But both wanted to avoid finishing last in the tournament and actually played some good soccer! Panama took the lead but Tunisia wouldn't go down without a fight and scored two to clinch third place in the group.
