The Indian media as well as social media is buzzing with complaints about John Abraham and Gaurav Kapoor's presence in the Sony Six studio for the FIFA World Cup pre-game show, Cafe Rio. Here are some of the funniest reactions on social media:
The world sends actual players to the World Cup. India, home to 1 billion people, sends Gaurav Kapoor and John Abraham as commentators.
Gaurav Kapoor hosting FIFA World and JohnAbraham as football pundit!!What next?? Sidhu as Cheerleader doing samba???
Does India deserve to be 154th in FIFA rankings? If John Abraham is the best you can get for the WorldCup pre-match show, then YES!
India's football expert - John Abraham India's football rank - 154 Jago India Jago.
Please show Gaurav Kapoor a red card.
What wrong have we done to deserve watching Gaurav Kapoor & John Abraham talk football at 2AM?
Gaurav Kapoor wasting time & energy on the show while Samir Kocchar has already reached the stadium & selling Chana, Moongfali & Paani Pouch.
Not looking good for Gaurav kapoor, any time siddhu will appear out of nowhere and shout "khatak" in his ears.
Just emailed a clip from last night's SonySix` Cafe Rio to FIFA. Hopefully they will ban the show!
When you don't understand the difference between IPL and World Cup football Cafe Rio happens!
IPL and WC are temporary, Gaurav Kapoor is permanent.
Gaurav Kapoor I don't think we have a casting couch in India, otherwise why something like Gaurav was sent.
Gaurav Kapoor never trended during the entire IPL7 season, but he trended on the very 1st day of World Cup.
That awkward moment when you prefer DD sports to the Sony Six for live telecast of the match because John and Gaurav.
I agree Indians are not much passionate about FIFA as much as other countries. But that doesn't mean that Gaurav Kapoor will host anything - Omar Abdullah
Gaurav Kapur & John Abraham on Cafe Rio is like Robert Vadra & Rahul Gandhi discussing economics! still shocked.
Damn!!! Gaurav missing Sidhus laughter track on his dumb jokes.
After seeing John Abraham and Gaurav Kapoor football has been renamed as "footLOL"
Gaurav Kapoor makes as much sense while talking about football as Shakti Kapoor makes while talking about feminism.
Cafe Rio is the worst thing to happen to the Football since John Abraham's film Goal.
John abrahim World Cup panel cause he did Movie Goal. Waiting for SRK to be on panel of Next NASA launch cause he did Swades.
The Fifa World Cup is close by. Let me give you a few rules that will preserve your beauty.
1. The remote control belongs to me for the whole month.
2. Tell all your friends not to givev birth or wed or die or wateva during the World Cup coz we won't go.
3. No talking during the game, wait for half-time or end of the game.
4. Repeats & highlights are as good as the main match, so am gonna watch them too.
5. We can watch STAR PLUS provided actors and actresses are wearing soccer jerseys and they are in Brazil.
6. You don't just pass infront of the TV if am watching soccer, you better crawl on the floor.
7. Make sure you don't ask silly questions such as; is this Chelsea versus England?
8. No funny faces to my friends when they come for soccer.
9. There shall be no comments about Cristiano Ronaldo's looks. Professinalism shall remain an absolute part of the WC.
10. If you miss the line up please dont ask, 'Who's that guy?'
11. Ronaldo the Brazilian and Ronaldo the Portuguese are not related, India and Pakistan did not qualify, so please no stupid questions.

A blonde gets a job as a physical education teacher for 16 - 18 year olds.
She notices a boy at the end of the field standing alone, while all the other kids are running around having fun, kicking a football. She takes pity on him and decides to speak to him.
"Are you ok?" she asks.
"Yes," he replies. "You can go and play with the other kids, you know," she says.
"It's best I stay here," he says.
"Why's that, sweetie?" asks the blonde.
The boy looks at her incredulously and says, "Because I'm the GOAL KEEPER !"
The boys had been up in the attic together helping with some cleaning. The kids uncovered an old manual typewriter and asked her, "Hey Mom, what's this?"
"Oh, that's an old typewriter," she answered, thinking that would satisfy their curiosity.
"Well, what does it do?" they queried.
"I'll show you," she said and returned with a blank piece of paper. She rolled the paper into the typewriter and began striking the keys, leaving black letters of print on the page.
"WOW!" they exclaimed, "That's really cool. But how does it work like that? Where do you plug it in?"
"There is no plug," she answered. "It doesn't need a plug."
"Then where do you put the batteries?" they persisted.
"It doesn't need batteries either," she continued.
"Wow! This is so cool!" they exclaimed. "Someone should have invented this a long time ago!"
