As Germany continued to score goal after goal against Brazil in Tuesday's 2014 FIFA World Cup semifinal match, the cameras showed a lot of sad Brazil fans who were seeing their team fall apart right in front of their eyes. Although there were a lot of crying fans, no fan made you feel more sorry for Brazil than the man with the World Cup trophy.

The man, Clovis Fernandes, may have been holding on to his trophy, but at that point, he knew that his team would not be hoisting the trophy at the end of the tournament. The look on his face summed up how every Brazil fan was feeling as Germany cruised to a 7-1 victory.

As sad as that picture may have been, there is a happy ending to the story.

Fernandes reportedly gave his trophy to a Germany fan. Based on the pictures, it looks like he was happy to pass it along to someone who has better use for it.

Tuesday wasn't Fernandes' first time in the spotlight. Before the World Cup began, he was featured by FIFA as Brazil's "12th Man."
