The FIFA World Cup is undeniably the biggest stage in all of soccer with the whole world watching. Players undoubtedly want to be at their best and have a chance to be a hero for their teams and their nations. But as Belgium star striker Romelu Lukaku found out on Thursday, you can quickly become a scapegoat, too.

With a scoreless draw to Croatia on Thursday afternoon, Belgium was officially eliminated from the World Cup. All the team needed was one goal to secure a victory and advance out of the group, and Lukaku could not provide, despite plenty of golden opportunities.

Lukaku was subbed on just after the half to provide Belgium an offensive boost in the second half. He had several wide-open shots in front of the net on Thursday afternoon, but unfortunately for Belgium, he missed every single one of them.

Lukaku didn’t find the the back of the net, despite several golden chances in the second half. And as a result, the soccer world absolutely blasted him for it on social media.

As a result of Lukaku’s absolutely brutal misses in huge moments, Belgium was knocked out of the tournament while Mococco and Croatia advanced.
