It’s just that kind of day and with that, friends, you have witnessed the most humiliating loss in Brazilian history. PHOTO: REUTERS

The Brazil versus Germany semi-final was an exhilarating watch. If you had gone to the fridge to grab a snack in the first half, bad luck; you are certain to have missed at least four goals. It’s not just that five-time World Cup champs Brazil were massacred in their backyard while playing host, but the fact that Germany scored so many goals that there was hardly time for a replay before they scored another one that made the game so thoroughly enjoyable.  

There was such shock around the situation that social media was abuzz. My Twitter timeline had me in splits, so I decided to share the joy (and tears as you will see below).

Here, I have compiled some noteworthy moments:

This woman is seriously heart-broken because she paid a lot of money for this green and yellow hat.

Some consolation; she made it to national TV with this priceless look.

Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari was keeping count. It’s easy when he just had the German’s goals to keep count of.

Ahh Oprah — always appropriate.

I don’t even want to know what this kid looked like after Germany scored its seventh goal. Poor thing.

Can’t make fun of this supporter; she feels, most certainly, like all of us do after Afridi goes for a duck… again.

This supporter be like,

“PLEASE GOD NO MORE.”

Seriously, though folks, here is the real reason Brazil lost.

Here are ardent prayers of “die Justin Bieber, die”.

Meanwhile Brazil is making some edits to its monuments. Keep an eye out for this one.

Here is the saddest Brazilian fan in the world.

“No I won’t let go, I won’t, I won’t, I won’t. Viva Brazil, okay?”
