Brazilian media are blaming Mick Jagger for the humiliating biggest World Cup defeat in their history.
The singer was spotted in the crowd at the Mineirao stadium in Belo Horizonte supporting the hosts with his Brazilian son Lucas.
Mick was sharing a VIP box with Kia Joorabchian, the Iranian agent of a number of Brazil squad players, including goalkeeper Julio Cezar, David Luiz, Ramires and Oscar.
Brazilian fans have nicknamed the Rolling Stones frontman ‘pe frio’ – a term for a person who brings bad luck – because every time he has announced his support for a team, that teams goes on to lose.
Jagger told fans during a show in Rome that Italy would beat Uruguay and advance to the knockout phases – but the Italians lost and were eliminated.
He then told fans in Lisbon that Portugal would win the World Cup – they too were eliminated.
And after rooting for England against Uruguay Rooney and co were humiliated by two Suarez goals.
It is not the first time Brazilians have believed Jagger’s support has been a curse for the national side.
During the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Brazilians decided that their team lost to the Netherlands in the quarter finals because Jagger wore a Brazil shirt to the game.
He reportedly also joined Bill Clinton to cheer on the United States, who lost to Ghana in the second round.
