Teenage footballers from Wittersham challenge embarrassed Brazil to a friendly in the park after World Cup defeat to Germany

We're all thinking it. Even the kids in the park could have trashed Brazil in their own back yard last night.

And now youngsters in Wittersham are preparing for a pre-season friendly against the humiliated hosts and five-time winners of the World Cup.

This poster emerged in the Recreation Ground in the village near Tenderden today - a far cry from the Maracana in Rio or the Estadio Mineirao in Belo Horizonte where Germany pumped seven goals past Brazil in the semi-final.

The tongue-in-cheek poster was stuck up by Bertie Cox, from the village, for a laugh. 
 
Mr Cox said: "It was such a dreadful game last night. It was a good watch... but they played like amateurs.
 
"Our village team could easily beat them if they came down here."
