Hilarious memes poke fun at World Cup personalities

Spectacular moves, crest-fallen defeat and controversial decisions on the field have been quickly milked by netizens as they expressed their jubilation, outrage and humour in memes.

Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura became the most prominent target in online uproar after he awarded a penalty for Brazil after their player had a dramatic fall when he was only 'softly touched' by a Croatian player, said observers.

Unflattering depictions of Nishimura in memes mocked his decision which helped Brazil score a 3-1 win.

The World Cup had only just begun, and it looks like each game would be able to roll out a barrel of laughs - thanks to meme creators.
