VOICE OVER SCRIPT:

BRAZILIANS ARE STILL REELING AFTER A STUNNING LOSS AGAINST GERMANY IN THE FIRST GAME OF THE WORLD CUP SEMIFINALS. A CRUSHING DEFEAT FOR THE HOME COUNTRY.

EVEN THE HEADLINES IN THE MORNING NEWSPAPERS FELT THE BURN... SIMPLY READING 'EMBARRASSMENT, SHAME, HUMILIATION'

AS GERMANY TROUNCED THE HOME TEAM WITH FIVE GOALS IN JUST THE OPENING 30 MINUTES OF PLAY, FANS BEGAN THEIR EXIT FROM THE STADIUM

THIS FAN SAYS FIVE NIL IS SO EMBARRASSING AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO STAY ANY LONGER....

5 QUICKLY TURNED TO INTO 7 GOALS AND A DEVASTATING DEFEAT...FORCING BRAZIL TO FIGHT FOR A THIRD PLACE STANDING.

WHILE MANY FANS WALKED AWAY SHAKING THEIR HEADS AND SHEDDING TEARS... A STAMPEDE SPARKED BY MASS THEFT UNFOLDED ON THE BEACH AT THE WORLD CUP 'FANFEST'

MEANWHILE -- DOZENS OF YOUTHS SNATCHED BEACH BAGS, MOBILE PHONES AND JEWELRY FROM PEOPLE'S NECKS AT COPACABANA BEACH IN RIO DE JANEIRO. A THRONG OF PEOPLE HAD GATHERED THERE TO WATCH THE GAME.

RIOT POLICE WERE ON HAND AS SECURITY ALERTS AROSE FOLLOWING THE EPIC LOSS

BRAZIL WILL FACE THE LOSER OF THE OTHER SEMI-FINAL MATCH BETWEEN ARGENTINA AND THE NETHERLANDS.
