The fans vented their frustration by throwing stones, bottles and other objects at the team bus as it made its way from the airport to the team’s hotel.
The team’s captain, Neymar, was also the target of some of the objects thrown by the angry fans.
The protests continued in the streets of Rio, with some fans expressing their anger at the team’s failure to live up to expectations. The fans chanted slogans such as “You don’t deserve to wear the green and yellow,” referring to the colors of the Brazilian national team.
