The knockout round of the FIFA World Cup has just begun and both five-time Ballon d’Or winners were shown the exit doors on Saturday.
First, France's teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe stepped up to the occasion and blew the Argentines away with a breathtaking performance for his side. Messi and Argentina could not keep their defenses from getting breached as Didier Deschamps' France roared back in grand style. As a result, Argentina succumbed 4-3 to France in the thrilling encounter.
Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, put on a subdued performance against Uruguay and Portugal suffered a humiliating 2-1 defeat.
Interestingly, Messi and Ronaldo have never scored in a World Cup knockout match. Yep.

Fans around the world were hoping to see their favourite stars meet each other at the field but after they were sent packing home on the same day at the World Cup, netizens made sure they met at the airport.
