Mensagem:  Hi Everybody I asked a native speaker about this and he told me that &" The equivalent expression in English is 'to have egg on one's face'. E.g. - At the party, Tom's date slapped his face and left. He just stood there with egg on his face&". Although I think this is not exactly the same...but they are close to it.
