World Cup: Nobody has a worse ending to the World Cup than Brazil’s Felipe Melo. The defender kickstarted the Netherlands comeback against Brazil in the quarterfinals by accidentally heading the ball into his own net – not totally his fault, but he’s being blamed – and then 15 minutes later Melo picked up a red card for deliberately stepping on an opponent and was sent off. Down a man, heavily-favored Brazil couldn’t rally against Clockwork Orange and lost, 2-1. Melo and his mates weren’t warmly received upon returning home, and then former Brazil striker Ronaldo tweeted that Melo “should not spend the holidays in Brazil.”
