World Cup: Newspapers in Brazil, Germany paint different pictures after 7-1 semi | SIDELINE

Nothing paints a picture quite like a newspaper's front page headline the day after an historic sporting result  —  good or bad.

And on Wednesday, the day after Germany's shocking 7-1 World Cup semifinal defeat of Brazil, newspapers in Brazil and Germany painted two very different pictures, as expected.


No words necessary.


"Disgrace"


"The biggest fiasco in history"


"Cup of Cups? Embarrassment of embarrassments"


"It wasn't a nightmare. It was real"


"Hangover"


"Massacre"


"How to explain?"


"vHEXAme - Combination of 'vexame' (embarrassmentt) and 'hexa' (sixth championship)"


"Go to hell, Felipe!"


In Germany, though, the mood of headlines was, predictably, significantly brighter, if not understated.

"Without words!"


"The Miracle of Belo (Horizonte) - Germany humiliates Brazil 7-1"


"7-1! Played like World Champions!"
