The meme made by one of the British media has gone viral since Argentina vs Saudi Arabia went one round, or when Team Tango was winning 1-0. The meme shows Ronaldo refereeing the VAR in the match between Argentina and Saudi Arabia.
The meme surfaced after Argentina’s three first-half goals were canceled out in just 13 minutes. Two of them were canceled by the referee using VAR.
Lionel Messi’s goal was disallowed via VAR for offside. While Lautaro Martinez’s two goals were disallowed via VAR, the other was clearly offside.
The meme of Ronaldo as the VAR referee for the match between Argentina and Saudi Arabia has gone viral because CR7 is still competing with Messi at the 2022 World Cup.
Messi’s penalty against Saudi Arabia in the first half made La Pulga equal Ronaldo’s record seven goals at the World Cup.
“This is a heavy blow, a painful defeat, but we must remain hopeful. This team will not give up. We will try to beat Mexico,” Messi said after Argentina’s defeat to Saudi Arabia.
Furthermore, Argentina will face Mexico in their second match of Group C on Saturday (26/11). Meanwhile, Ronaldo and Portugal will play just their first match of the 2022 World Cup against Ghana on Thursday (24/11).
