Mexico fans make an Arjen Robben piñata after flop ends their World Cup

Friday July 11th, 2014

Mexico fans were furious when the Netherlands' Arjen Robben flopped to the ground hastening their exit from the World Cup, and nearly apoplectic when he later admitted that he took a dive in the game.

Luckily they have found a fun way to work out their feelings and celebrate their culture at the same time: an Arjen Robben pinñata!

​This is a great looking piñata, but it is important that readers do not get the wrong idea, as Arjen Robben is probably not actually filled with delicious candies.

There is only one way to find out for sure though.
