Riots Outside Stadium After Brazil’s Crushing Defeat, Football Fans Burn National Flags to Vent Anger
Combining reports by Folha de São Paulo and the Argentinian Infobae website, on the evening of July 8 local time, when the Brazilian national team was eliminated 1-7 by the German national team, Brazilian football fans could not hide their mood of heartbreak and dissatisfaction. After the end of the match, over 20 buses inside the two Sao Paulo public bus stops at the stadium grounds were set on fire, as well as a commercial building, and there were even football fans burning Brazilian national flags to vent their anger.
According to reports, at around 7:20pm that evening, over 20 buses were lit on fire at a Sao Paolo city public bus stop, with 19 of the public buses completely burned down, and one partially burnt.
Afterward, a warehouse in the city also had a fire, with the containers outside the warehouse having been lit on fire with gasoline. At around 10pm that night, thick smoke began to come out of another public bus stop in the city, with multiple buses burnt.
Small-scale riots even occurred among the upset Brazilian football fans outside the stadium, with some football fans even burning the Brazil national flag, exhibiting their disappointment with the football team.
Meekly asks, will the German team still be able to go back home to their country?
Seeing this, it seems us Chinese football fans have higher characters [better behavior], a superiority probably brought about by us often losing.
Looks like the characters of our national team football fans are higher.
This shows that Brazil is not united. It is because you guys gave them too much pressure that caused this result.
For the third time, the curtain on a world war is about to lift… damn Germany, not giving even a bit of face…
For Brazil, there would be riots even if they won the World Cup, there would be riots even if they were eliminated in the semi-finals, and the only difference would be the reason for rioting.
Brazil [team] was too disappointing, what happened, Brazil?
Shit, at last, upon losing a game, the Brazilians remember their various dissatisfaction from before the competition.
Rise of the Nazis.
They made it to the Top 8 and still burn their national flag, then the Chinese team can only burn their team members.
