2014 World Cup Funnies: Mexico fan proposes to girlfriend at stadium - just before Netherlands score

It should have been the perfect moment - your country records a famous win over the Netherlands, and you seal it with a marriage proposal to your beloved at the very stadium during the match. 

But this Mexican man might have jumped the gun, opting to pop the question just before Dutch midfielder rifled in a late 88th minute equaliser past goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. 

And it got worse in injury time with the Dutch completing a dramatic turnaround, as Klass Jan Huntelaar scored the decisive penalty to deny Mexico a spot in the quarter-finals. 

Why the guy couldn't have waited another few minutes for the match to be over, we'll never know.
