Metro- One of the images of the 2014 World Cup was of megafan Fernandes clinging on to his replica trophy while Brazil collapsed to a 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany.
The photograph immediately exploded on social media and Fernandes became something of a celebrity.
It later emerged that he had attended various World Cups since 1990 after leaving his job as a pizza restaurant owner.
With his wife’s permission, the Selecao’s most famous fan went on to dedicate his life to following Brazil.
According to Brazilian outlet Globo, he died after a nine year battle with cancer.
Anyone who watched the World Cup last year should remember this guy. Having the World Cup in Brazil, a place where o Jogo Bonito lives and breathes with every person there, making it to the semi finals and then getting curb stomped by Germany who went on to win the World Cup might as well have been like German soldiers bombing Brazil. Must’ve been devastating for everyone But none more than for Clovis here. That cameras were on him just tears in his eyes gripping that fake world cup trophy as if he was watching loved ones die. Guy just couldn’t let that trophy go but alas, Germany ripped it not out of his arms, but from his heart. R.I.P.
But then again this guy was still alive for all 5 of the Brazil’s world cups so be happy you got at least that, Clovis.
Metro- One cunning Manchester United fan has played a ruthless prank on an unsuspecting Arsenal supporter hoping to buy a DVD. Loyal Gooner Sam bought an Arsenal season review DVD on eBay to watch back their 2009-2010 season, preparing himself to sit down and reminisce about the days when Robin van Persie, Cesc Fabregas, Thomas Vermaelen and Samir Nasri all wore the Arsenal shirt with pride. But when he went to play the DVD he received a very, very shocking sickening discovery.
But the tale doesn’t end there kids. After bearing the brunt of thousands of tweets laughing at poor Sam for just wanting to watch some Andrey Arshavin in his prime, the evil culprit surfaced:
Im not a soccer guy by any means. I mean we get the soccer culture a lot because South Florida is like a mini united nations for Spanish speaking countries and all those people watch. But i occasionally watch from time to time. That being said, i dont know the rivalries really. All i know is i had a Man U friend for a long time and then this little chick from Bermuda asked what soccer team i would follow and i said Man U and she told me “Fuck outta here with that” because she was an Arsenal fan. Well guess what, Arsenal fans? Man U, Robin Van Persie, and @obviously_jack just troll slapped you with their dick from that ebay purchase. O Jogo Bonito, Bitches.
Sidenote- Robin Van Persie is one of the only names i know and love. Dude’s a good lookin dude and puts balls in the net. Aside Team USA its Team Netherlands for me.
