Was this the worst defeat EVER in football?
A few of the newpspapers went for eye-catching front pages without pictures or with just one word explanations.
The words "shame", "deception", "pain", "anger" and "humiliation" are noted on various front pages, while O Dia even tells national manager Luis Felipe Scolari to "Go to hell".
This defeat will last long in the memory of the Brazilian nation. The 1950 team who ost the final on home soil were never forgiven – the team’s colours were even changed from white to yellow such was the willingness to forget that match.
One newspaper, Extra, finally forgave that team with the headline: "Congratulations to the runners-up of 1950... Yesterday we found out what shame really is".
