Tragic betrayal of Brazil's football spirit

Brazil has betrayed its old football identity and paid a bitter price for it, the liberal-conservative daily Diário de Notícias notes: "It seems impossible to find a word, an adjective, to describe the extent of Brazil's defeat. ... Brazil fell in front of its local fans just minutes after it had passionately sung the national hymn. Then came the goals, the astonishment, and finally the booing. ... Brazil did not play well in this World Cup. It couldn't because it retains nothing of its old identity. ... And the beating that followed was monumental. Brazil was crushed like an ant by its opponent, who judiciously controlled the ball, the pace and the space. That team was Germany, and its players were the only ones who respected the legacy of old Brazil."
