We’ve all been there, offering up our sincere congratulations on a job well done, only to be hung out to dry by the very person we’re offering it to.
Well that’s exactly what Gini Wijnaldum went through last night as he went for the fist bump with the departing Memphis Depay.
After obliging with a number of his other teammates, depay wandered past the Liverpool man without even noticing, prompting a fantastic reaction.

Thankfully for Wijnaldum’s pride, Depay did eventually respond after his teammate kept his arm outstretched out of sheer awkwardness.
The matchup with Spain finished 1-1. Sergio Canales opened the scoring in the 18th minute before Donny van de Beek equalised early in the second half.
It wasn’t all bad for Gini though, who captained his country in the absence of Virgil van Dijk, on his 30th birthday too.
