France down Uruguay after Muslera error
With Uruguay on the brink of World Cup elimination, defender Jose Gimenez couldn’t hide his heartbreak as he was moved to tears before the game had finished.
France beat Uruguay 2-0 in the competition’s first quarter-final, to take their place in the final four.
With two minutes left on the clock, the Atletico Madrid man took his place in the defensive wall for a free-kick and after realising that there was not enough time left to turn things around, he couldn’t stop crying.
Gimenez was one of the best defenders at the tournament in Russia but says goodbye after his team were deservedly beaten by Les Bleus.
