From Messi to The Simpsons, the best memes from Argentina-Saudi Arabia

(CNN Spanish) —Cake can I eat? Or are you going to charge me offside?” The meme of a photo of Leo Messi with that message went around the internet this morning, while the Argentines watched over and over again as the judge charged them with an advanced position in their match against Saudi Arabia.

Argentina suffered a historic 2-1 defeat against the Middle Eastern nation on Tuesday in its World Cup debut in Qatar.

The Albiceleste team, one of the great favorites to win the World Cup, arrived in Qatar with a memorable 36-game unbeaten record that they achieved in the South American qualifiers and the games they have played in the last three years.

But now Saudi Arabia, only with little possession of the ball and great effectiveness, defeated the team led by Lionel Scaloni.

The advanced positions cost the Argentine team dearly. Three goals were canceled by off side. The albiceleste had 10 advanced positions in this match against 6 in the entire 2018 World Cup in Russia, in which she played 4 matches. The two players from Argentina who stayed in the most times off side They were Ángel Di María and Lautaro Martínez, 3 each.

And, of course, ingenuity flooded Twitter with memes featuring Messi, the World Cup mascot, characters from The Simpsons, President Alberto Fernández and even Pope Francis.
