Newsweek, one of America's most authoritative and prestigious magazines,
has committed what is possibly the biggest gaffe in its history with a
cover story declaring the World Cup a disaster.

Proclaiming "The World Cup falls flat" with a picture of a punctured
football on its front cover, Newsweek reports how "empty seats" and "angry
fans" have destroyed the tournament.

The magazine has woefully misjudged the mood of football fans the world
over. This year's competition has gripped the public's imagination with a
string of shock results including Monday's victory by the American team
over Mexico.
