Wales’ Euro 2020 hopes and dreams came to an abrupt and disappointing end on Saturday as they were dumped out of the tournament following a 4-0 loss to Denmark in Amsterdam.
After impressing in the group stages, there were hopes that the Welsh could repeat their heroics of 2016 where they managed to reach the semi-finals but it wasn’t to be as the Danes ran riot.
With the score at 3-0 to Denmark, things got worse for the Welsh in stoppage time when midfielder Harry Wilson was sent off. Just minutes later, Martin Braithwaite scored a fourth for the Danes but they had to wait a while for the goal to be confirmed, thanks to a prolonged VAR decision.
This wait proved to be a bit too much to take for Wales’ talismanic captain Gareth Bale whose frustration was picked up by TV cameras and was clear for all to see.
This wasn’t the only meme that Bale managed to create during this game. Following the loss, Bale was asked whether this would be his last game for his country. The Real Madrid player didn’t take kindly to this question and promptly walked off camera without giving an answer. This also got the meme treatment.
“Is that your last game for Wales?”
