To many this World Cup is disappointing, just like it has always been throughout the World Cup history. There can always be only a winner at the end. But to some fans, to some countries, the results just aren't up to expectation. Or maybe it wasn't the results, but just emotion.
People from the South East Asia cried when England went out against Germany. Some 10 year olds in Kenya wept when Brazil was beaten by the Netherlands. These are not because of the results; this is football. There is no need to explain. It is just the way it is.
