Funny Video: Dog Reacts to His Team's Elimination from the World Cup

How do you say, "There's always next time!" in Portuguese?

Severa the dog is clearly upset that Portugal was eliminated from this year's World Cup, and the pup could use some words of encouragement.

As the team's June 26 match against Ghana came to a close on TV (Portugal won but needed a bigger win to advance), the patriotic pooch turns his back – literally! – on team captain Cristiano Ronaldo and sits quietly on the floor, resting his head on his paws. (That's body language for, "Not cool, guys, not cool.")

While the agony of defeat is palpable, Severa doesn't mourn what could have been for very long. In a video posted a few days later, the pup can be seen grinning from ear to ear when CNN declares the pooch even cuter than Ronaldo.



Well played, guys, well played.
