The first World Cup last 16 tie law Uruguay bow out after a 2-0 loss against France. It was a disappointing end for a spirited side who were hampered by the absence of star man Edinson Cavani.

The loss took its toll on centre-back Jose Gimenez, who began crying on the field towards the end of the game. The 23-year-old had enjoyed a strong campaign and was clearly disappointed to see it end. Speaking on RTE, Jim Beglin suggested it demonstrated how much the tournament meant to Uruguay.

Meanwhile, on ITV, Gary Neville took a distinctly different approach labeling it 'embarrassing.'

I am all for showing emotion but that’s embarrassing. You’ve got five minutes left in the game just get on with it.

Neville's response to Jose Gimenez crying has been strongly criticised online.

The Atletico Madrid duo of Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez were consoled by their team-mate Antoine Griezmann after the match.
