Brazil fans were disappointed, and evidently so. Think about it… a country spends $11 billion hosting the Fifa World Cup and the home team doesn't even play in the finals. Tough.

Brazil is ME


Solidly Selecao


'Dying' for Brazil

And from here, well, the emotions just keep (over)flowing.

Green with envy, yellow with greed

Lost in translation


Drenched in their own tears


… Well, we are speechless with this one


This is how the Germans reacted before and after!
