Brazil fans react to losing

Brazil's World Cup dreams ended in a humiliating fashion on Tuesday as Germany thrashed them 7-1 in the first semi-final.

It was Brazil's worst ever defeat in a World Cup, but for many fans it was the way they lost that hurt the most. Brazil's players were made to look amateurish by Germany.

My way of dealing with disappointment is to take deep breaths and find something good to think about.

I tend to go away and think if the situation is as bad as it seems.
