Brazil's David Luiz burst into tears during his post-match interview as he apologised for his team's 7-1 drubbing at the hands of Germany. "I just wanted to give a joy to my people, my people, who spends so much (time) suffering. Unfortunately, I could not," he said.
"Sorry everyone, sorry to all Brazilians. Just wanted to see my people smile."
Meanwhile, a stunned Luiz Felipe Scolari took full responsibility for Brazil's "catastrophic" 7-1 World Cup semi-final hammering. "Who is responsible for this result? I am, it's me. The blame for this catastrophic result can be shared between us all, but the person who decided the line-up, the tactics was me," he said.
"It was my choice. We tried to do what we could, we did our best – but we came up against a great German team."
