The best jokes as Senegal go out of the World Cup on fair play after 0-1 defeat to Colombia

Senegal bow out to Japan on fair play.

There were all sorts of jokes as Senegal went out of the World Cup on fair play at the group stage after 0-1 defeat to Colombia
OUT: Senegal

Yerry Mina’s second goal in consecutive games gave Colombia a 1-0 win over Senegal that qualified them for the last 16 and eliminated their opponents.

The Colombians themselves were facing an early exit until a 74th minute header from a corner saw them move above Japan to top Group H.

Senegal ended up behind the Japanese only on fair play having finished on the same points, goal difference and goals scored.

On another topsy turvy conclusion to a group at Russia 2018, here are the best jokes as Senegal go out of the World Cup at the group stage after a 0-1 defeat Colombia at the Samara Arena on Thursday:

Oh no, Senegal. Not like this.

Africans will use muti/voodo/black magic to bewitch an unemployed neighbours to not ever graduate nor get a job but can't make these European goalkeepers to dive opposite direction when the ball comes through

Good luck in trying to explain to your girlfriend how Senegal exited the World Cup because of fair play.

Senegal going out on yellow cards is a hate crime

— Big Burger (@Baba_BS) June 28, 2018

EVEN SENEGAL is out. Africa, what are we good at? We need to talk.

Very unfortunate for Senegal.

Still, at least they're not Germany.

This VAR is a colonizer. The way he hates Africans … #SENCOL

Heartbroken for Senegal. In a fair and just world, a Jollof Rice cook-off would have decided this tie breaker

Senegal puts on green and gets knocked out.

Just like Nigeria and Germany.

Do we really want a men's World Cup where Denmark advances and Senegal doesn't? It's a NAH from me. pic.twitter.com/9Uzi1IhQI2

Interesting fact: If Japan and Senegal had received equal numbers of yellow cards and were therefore equally nice, qualification for the next round would have been decided based on how good their respective fans were at cleaning up the stadiums after them.
