After the Brazilian team’s defeat they returned home and faced the wrath of football enthusiasts, as footage from social media suggests they didn't get the warmest of welcomes.
Brazil went 2-0 down in the first half against Belgium with Fernandinho's own goal being followed up by a magical finish from Kevin de Bruyne, but in the second half they laid siege to the European's goal, according to Sport Bible.
Renato Augusto pulled one back for Brazil and the substitute could have scored another whilst Philippe Coutinho and Neymar also might have scored.
Gabriel Jesus might have won a penalty when Vincent Kompany took him down in the penalty area but even the VAR officials didn't think it should have been a spot kick, not to say they also weren't wrong.
Ultimately though the Red Devils' defence was excellent and through Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and De Bruyne they counter attacked brilliantly and caused the Selecao problems all night.
Brazil haven't won the World Cup since 2002 which is their second longest run without winning it, can they stop the rot in four years time in Qatar?
