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.

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.”
This was sad to watch.
