BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil, July 8 (UPI) -- Germany thrashed Brazil 7-1 in the World Cup semifinal at Estadio Mineirao on Tuesday. By halftime, Germany was up 5-0, making it almost impossible for hometown fans to keep up their spirits.

When Germany scored its fourth goal, cameras panned to one young fan who best encapsulated the crushed hopes of his soccer-mad country.

A Vine video of his reaction went viral on social media during the game.
