Brazil fans feel 'horrible'

13/07/2014 from:SNTV


Brazil fans react to the 3-0 defeat to the Netherlands in the World Cup third place play-off.


There's something not right about this World Cup. It was meant to be Brazil's great celebration, banishing the ghosts of 1950 by winning in the Maracana.

Instead they were outplayed in the third place play-off in Brasilia.

SOUNDBITE (Portuguese): Marcio Machado, Brazil fan

"Hope is the last one to die, so we wanted to see Brazil win even for third place. After the 7-1 loss we hoped at least to win by 1-0 but we didn't so let's move forward and hope that Brazilian football changes starting today."

They lost 3-0 to the Netherlands so in two games they've scored once and conceded ten times.

SOUNDBITE (Portuguese): Mariana Brito, Brazil fan

"The feeling is horrible, sad but I came because I think we have to support our country above all, I came here to root for them and hoped for victory, it didn't happen unfortunately so I applauded who really played the best."
Those watching at the fan fest in Rio were just as unimpressed.

SOUNDBITE (Portuguese) Rosa Izalda, Brazil fan:

"This is a very sad moment because I expected much more from the team and it disappointed us, a lot, because Brazilian football should not shame us like that. The players don't do anything - it seems like they don't love their country."

That will be tough to hear for Brazil players who were in tears whenever the national anthem was played, you need more than passionate singing to win a World Cup though.
