Fans of El Tri can now take out their anger over Netherlands forward Arjen Robben’s controversial foul by beating him … and getting candy.

It’s no secret that Mexico fans blame the elimination of their national team on the Dutch striker who drew the foul that awarded the Netherlands a penalty kick in the dying moments of regular time in the Round of 16 match between the two.

And if World Cup spectators thought that holding up signs during Netherlands matches, memes inspired by Robben’s less-then-graceful fall and a hashtag that can be seen around the world weren't enough, Mexico has taken grudge to a whole new level by designing an Arjen Robben piñata.

Now, for a small price, fans of all ages will have the ideal item to release any future anger toward Robben that should arise. Fun for any occasion.
