The ‘ghost’ of Uruguay terrifies Brazilians (Picture: YouTube)

Uruguay might have only just booked their place at the World Cup in Brazil next year, but they are already making the most of it.

The team’s cheeky fans have kick-started taunting Brazilians about the infamous clash in Rio in 1950, in which Uruguay came from behind to beat the Samba boys in the World Cup final.

The result haunted many Brazilians, and Uruguay have been all too quick to promise a repeat performance next summer.

One of their supporters, in partnership with kit suppliers Puma, has been travelling around Brazil dressed as a Uruguayan ghost – in order to terrify locals.

It appears to be working, although with the likes of Neymar, Oscar, Thiago Silva and co, Brazil are unlikely to be too worried if they face off again.
