Colombia's Radamel Falcao, second from right, celebrates after his teammate Colombia's Yerry Mina scored his side's opening goal during the group H match between Senegal and Colombia, at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Samara Arena on June 28, 2018 in Samara, Russia.

The worst time to sleep on the job.

There's playing the post, then there's playing the post.

Senegal has been eliminated from the World Cup in the group stage with its 1-0 loss to Colombia on Thursday (June 28). Colombia's only goal came in at the 74th minute in a corner kick cross followed by a header from Yerry Mina. It's a gorgeous shot -- but something looks stagnant among all the commotion.

In case you missed it, here's a more obvious example.

That's Senegal's Idrissa Gueye, and he had so much chill he probably could've started an early Russian winter. Twitter, of course, took note of his "defensive tactics."

Senegal was eliminated because of this goal, and there isn't even the slightest bit of panic on Gueye's face as the ball flies by him. Now Colombia will advance to the Round of 16 with Japan, and Gueye can maybe go take a nap.
