This kicked off all sorts of rumors about crazy street riots and buses being set on fire, as angry Brazilians reacted to the news. Some Brazilians, though, are managing to handle the loss gracefully.

“I was very sad at what happened yesterday,” she told us. “Now obviously we have to work on our team. We have to show the world what Brazil is and we have to do the best post-game.” Adorably, Ambrosio had watched the game with fellow Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima, who both donned Team Brazil jerseys to watch the game in a New York City bar.

The final World Cup game is scheduled for Sunday, July 13 at 3:00 p.m. ET.
