Brazil fans staged a funeral march for Germany’s World Cup campaign after the reigning champions bowed out at the group stage.

A 2-0 defeat to South Korea sealed the Germans’ fate, prompting Brazil supporters to indulge in no little schadenfreude with memories of their 2014 semi-final still lingering.

Germany won 7-1 at the Estádio Mineirão on that occasion, but they will play no further part this time around while Brazil reached the last 16 after beating Serbia 2-0.

For extra international flavour, it transpired the Brazil fans holding the funeral march were Lebanese Brazil fans living in Libya.
