If ever you were in any doubt as to the passion of the Brazilian football fan, check out the below video, showing a neighbourhood in São Paulo sonically explode every time Brazil scored during its World Cup 2014 opener against Croatia. Tellingly, it doesn't show the reaction to the 11th minute own-goal when Brazilian defender Marcelo knocked the ball into the back of his team's net. What's it sound like when thousands of tears hit the floor simultaneously? [Vimeo]
