Before Saturday night’s World Cup 3rd Place Playoff nobody knew much about the Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen other than that he was the guy that was substituted by new manager Louis van Gaal when they got through to penalty shootouts, leading to the Dutch team progressing to the semi-finals. That all changed during the game over the weekend when he decided to lean against his goal-post while setting up his wall to defend a free kick against Brazil.

The 25-year-old keeper instantly became the central focus point for a wave of properly funny memes which set the internet ablaze. We’ve listed some of our favourites below – feel free to send us any you think we really need to see!
