Our Little Silver Joy by andreshanti Our Little Silver Joy by andreshanti
Hohohoho Uruguay is last chance for a South American victory on this World Cup.
After Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina lost the quarter-finals, we hope our hermanito ["little brother", for Uruguay is one of the smallest countries in South America] wins Netherlands.

"Cisplatina" was the name Uruguay had when it was a part of Brazil, before 1828.

According to Wikipedia: The Cisplatina Province (literally, Province of this side of the Rio de la Plata from the Brazilian perspective, c.f. Cisalpine) was a Portuguese and later a Brazilian province in existence from 1815 to 1828. The province was formed after the Portuguese captured and subsequently annexed the territory of the Banda Oriental, which today forms the independent nation of Uruguay.

The word "cisplatina" means "everything that stands before Rio de la Plata [the River Plate, La Plata River]" in Portuguese.

"Hermanito" is a short word for "hermano", brother in Spanish.

LOL in Chile the stereotype is inversed, we see Brazilians as browner than us XD. But if you take the character design by watching futbol only, then yeah! we pretty much look like that. I was like, OMG, Chile totally looks like Alexis Sanchez XD.

And yeah, we were totally rooting for Uruguay too!

Your comics are way funny :D

the chilean guy looks pretty much brazillian... i'd rather draw the brazillian guy as black.
