When they were knocked out of the World Cup in the group stage, Cristiano Ronaldo and co would have expected to return home to more than a few broken hearts.
But Portugal's footballers seem to have shattered dreams of a more canine variety after a dog was caught on camera visibly devastated after their Group G exit.
Severa is a pet who appears to understand football, proving true the old saying that a dog really is a man's best friend.
It wasn't all doom and gloom though - for three fleeting matches, Portugal were still in the competition. Severa certainly enjoyed Silvestre Varela's late equaliser against the USA.
