It came as a rude shock on Thursday as Croatia humiliated Argentina 3-0 at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.
La Albiceleste were tipped to comeback strongly against the Europeans following their disappointing 1-1 draw with Iceland in their opening encounter.
However, the reverse was the case as they crumbled to second half strikes from Ante Rebic, Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, as their Round of 16 hopes hang in the balance.
Twitter reacted differently as they made fun of Lionel Messi. See some post below
The time your supposed GOAT should have spent training for the World Cup, he spent on taking selfies with a goat, now see. #ARGCRO

The sad part is that Messi is going to blamed since Argentina lost- but soccer is not a one man show; it’s about team work. Looking at these matches the cup will be won by these underdog teams that play as a team and play with the same pace from start to finish #ARGCRO

The Award of Most Horrible Performance so far in this World Cup goes to Argentina ?? #ARGCRO
