How do you say “Boo Freakin’ Hoo” in Spanish?

The Mexican team was defeated today by the Dutch in the World Cup.

Not just defeated. Devastated. After the team surrendered only 1 goal in the last three matches, and was up 1-0 for most of this one, they collapsed, giving up two late goals in a controversial finish to lose 2-1 and eliminated from the tournament.

¡Ay, caramba! The hypocrisy. Cry me a Rio.
