WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
After an incredible second matchday in Brazil, the world's newspapers have reacted. In Spain, a shell-shocked Marca lead with 'ARREGLAD ESTO' ('FIX THIS'), with El Periodico headlining 'Roja de verguenza' ('Red shame') and El Mundo simply saying 'Humillacion' ('Humiliation').

On the other side of the Atlantic, newspapers are understandably cheerier, with Mexico's Reforma leading with 'TRIUNFO EN MACONDO' ('VICTORY IN MACONDO') and Chile's Las Ultimas Noticias having 'Chile mete muito miedo' ('Chile strikes a lot of terror') as their main headline.
