Football is a game of two halves, and a fan's joy at an early goal can turn to abject desolation as their team is thoroughly trounced.

Spanish fans were in shock after watching the 5-1 humiliation in its World Cup opener against the Netherlands. It was Spain's worst defeat in 64 years. City streets, accustomed to noisy celebrations after Spain wins, were eerily quiet after the rout as fans filed silently out of bars.

When Daniel Sturridge equalised for England two minutes after Italy scored, team physio Gary Lewin celebrated so hard he dislocated his ankle. But then Mario Balotelli broke English hearts when he scored with a header in the second half.

In this gallery we look at the delight and despair written on the faces of fans around the world watching the action.
