Violence broke out on the streets of Brazil after the drastic game that left millions of football fans in devastation last night.
Spectators inside The Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte were practically in tears as brazil succumbed to a humiliating 7-1 defeat to Germany in the World Cup semi-final, ending dreams of a title on home soil.
Riot police were out in force in several Brazilian cities in case trouble kicked off. In Rio de Janeiro officers descended on Copacabana beach amid reports of gunfire. Authorities were called to a densely-populated area of Sao Paulo after football supporters reportedly set a bus alight, leaving it as little more than a burnt-out shell. Sad Stuff.
