Argentina manager Alejandro Sabella was so surprised to see Gonzalo Higuain maraud through the Belgian defence and cannon a shot against the bar, that he briefly lost the ability to stand.

Predictably, Sabella’s misfortune was ridiculed by the Twitter masses and recreated in a series of memes.

The best effort saw the goalkeeping heroics of Tim Howard combined with the kung-fu exploits of Klass Jan Huntelaar.

And a quick mention to the worst effort too…
