The significance of such a humiliation -- seven goals to one scored in two matches, an enormity in soccer -- was not lost on the Spanish press, which reacted emotionally. The biggest sports daily in the nation, Marca, went with a simple one-word headline: Crashed! and put it over a picture of goalkeeper and team capitain Iker Casillas staring forlornly into space, while a teammate hides his face under his jersey. The story itself was just as harsh, accusing the outgoing champions of having shown the world “another unbelievable ridicule,” a merciless reference to the five-goal drubbing suffered from the Dutch.

“It’s a sad goodbye,” Marca said, adding  that the team of coach Vicente del Bosque had given “a very poor image.” The squad “screams for a generational change,” read the story -- and that was just the front page summary. 
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

“That was good while it lasted, but everything ends in life,” Marca said of the national team’s cycle of domination (it won the 2012 European championship as well). And because you can’t have a World Cup without vaguely war-related metaphors, the newspaper noted the match had been “a national agony.” 

The country’s newspaper of record, El País, was more composed in its reaction, simply saying in its main headline on the Web: “Spain out of the World Cup after falling to Chile.” But even the normally subdued País could not avoid words commensurate with the magnitude of the loss: It was “a calamitous effort,” “the nightmare of Brazil,” and, again, “the most complete ridicule.”

Casillas was quoted by the paper as saying, “I demand forgiveness from the people.” The paper’s sports writer in charge of live-blogging the match caught the spirit perfectly: “Sad night, but you have to get up and think of the future. Life goes on. A strong hug to everybody,” Rafael Pineda signed off.

El fútbol is that serious a deal, yes. And the new king of the Spaniards, knowing well who his subjects are, may very well mention in his coronation speech Thursday a sentiment similar to what Pineda wrote. Felipe VI, meeting the press on Wednesday, asked half-jokingly if the journalists had  any ideas for the speech -- and it’s hard to imagine that the new king’s advisors will not tell him to talk constructively about the defeat, and a future rebirth, as a metaphor that a nation coming out of a dire economic crisis could use as inspiration.

It’s tough to lose like this (and to not one but two formerly Spanish-dominated nations, by the way, though the king won’t say it), but life goes on.

World Cup 2014: Croatia Defeats Cameroon, 4-0

By IAN LOVETT   

Croatia is still alive and Cameroon is out of the World Cup after a very one-sided encounter in Manaus.

Croatia took an early lead through Ivica Olic, but it remained a tight contest until Alex Song lost his cool and inexplicably lashed out at Mario Mandzukic late in the first half, punching him from behind as they ran up the field. Song was rightly shown a red card, leaving Cameroon down a goal and a man, and without any real hope.

In the second half, Cameroon simply imploded. Croatia scored three goals to make the final score 4-0, and it could easily have been twice that many as the Cameroonian defense fell apart. By the end of the game, one Cameroon player was head-butting another.

Croatia will now face Mexico in its final match of the group, and they will likely need another win if they hope to advance. The Croatians will surely face stronger resistance than they did today. Still, they will take heart from Madzukic's return. He scored two goals today, and was a constant danger, especially on set pieces.

Ivan Perisic also starred for the Croats, setting up Olic for the first goal and scoring the second himself.

Scotland Fan Enjoys Uruguay Beating England at 2014 World Cup

By Mark Patterson, UK Staff Writer
Jun 19, 2014


BqhV2O_IEAEmItw - WORLD CUP 2014 - World Cup Football | Fifa Soccer

England are on the brink of elimination from the World Cup after a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Luis Suarez and Uruguay, so fans of the South American nation were naturally delighted.

So too was a Scotland fan, hidden in the crowd among the Uruguayans in Sao Paulo. You can spot him in the still shot above wearing a Scotland away shirt and flying the national flag.

Blink and you'd have missed him, but clearly he didn't miss any of England's frustrating defeat.

Feeling football fever, or perhaps not? My neurological guide to the World Cup

Dean Burnett

Watching football can cause a dizzying range of emotional experiences – and here's why

Emotions-are-stronger-whe-012 - WORLD CUP 2014 - World Cup Football | Fifa Soccer
'Emotions are stronger when you're part of a group' … England football fans in Sao Paulo after their team lost to Uruguay. Photograph: Oli Scarff/Getty Images

Friday 20 June 2014 16.00 BST

The recent England games have been a rollercoaster of emotions for enthusiastic fans. There's the anticipation created by a long build-up, the split-second changes in the fortune of the teams during the games, the possibility of victory suddenly replaced by crushing defeat. All of this throws fans from one extreme to the other, leaving them drained and exhausted, much as though they were actually playing.

Why does this happen? What is it about football that causes such intense emotional reactions?
