"Please humble these frauds," a user tweeted at Lionel Messi.

You’re named after a city in Tennessee pipe down," another replied.

"You’re a big club bust," commented Will Forbes.

"Bro took Charles Barkley of all people seriously," a fan laughed.

"Like your stint at Manchester United," another shot back.

"You already cooked us in the actual game," a team USA supporter cried.

"Memphis coming through after the game too!" commented Michael Eaves.
