At World Cup, Brazil Player Pops Giant Ball On Pitch, Becomes A Meme

Alisson was spotted popping a giant inflatable ball that rolled onto the pitch.


A giant red inflatable ball that found its way to the pitch during Sunday night's World Cup match between Switzerland and Brazil was promptly burst by Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker, better known as just Alisson. A video of Alisson stomping on the ball towards the end of the game, which ended in a 1-1 tie, has gone viral on social media.

The draw left many fans disappointed as this is first time in 40 years that Brazil did not manage to win their opening World Cup match. It is one of the most successful teams at the FIFA World Cup, having been crowned champions five times in the past.
