Brazilian newspaper offers front cover to fans

Understandably, the Brazilian press haven't been particularly favourable toward their national team following the Selecao's utterly disastrous showing against Germany in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday.

Headlines ranged from the unsympathetic, to the shocked, to the repulsed, to the simply bewildered and astonished and right on through to the utterly catatonic and despairing (for example, Mei Hora's brilliant post-defeat headline read: "We can't even make fun today. We'll be back tomorrow").

However, it was the Lance! newspaper that stole the show for our money -- simply leaving their front page almost entirely blank in order to let irate supporters vent their fury by letting them write in their own Brazil-bashing headlines.
