Uruguayan Schoolkids Go Viral After Going Wild for World Cup Win

The children at Colegio del Sur in Montevideo, Uruguay, have become overnight viral stars following their reaction to Jose Gimenez’s late winning goal against Egypt in the nation’s opening game at the 2018 World Cup.

In footage shared to Twitter the children – many with their faces painted for the occasion and with some carrying the Uruguayan flag – watch the build-up to Gimenez’s goal, before screaming with joy and running wildly into their school playground as the ball hit the back of the net.
