Scolari laments Brazil humiliation

Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has branded Brazil’s humiliating semi-final defeat to Germany the worst day of his life, Sky Sports is reporting, after the ruthless Germans dumped them out with a 7-1 victory.

In what was a first half that could barely be believed, the hosts were put to the sword as their poor performance was exposed, with Germany coming in at half time an amazing five goals up in an 11 minute blitz – four of them in just six crazy minutes.

Two more goals in the second half before a mere drop in the ocean consolation goal from Oscar in the last minute more than ended Brazil’s dream of reaching the final on home soil, and their stunning capitulation along with Germany’s utter supremacy sent shockwaves throughout the football world.

Scolari, who saw his side without star Neymar and captain Thiago Silva, said: “Today was the worse day of my life - but life goes on. My message for the Brazilian people and fans is that we tried to do what we could do, our best, versus a great team.

"They finished off the match in three or four minutes with some fantastic goals. The atmosphere in the changing room was terrible obviously. But we are going to continue working hard to keep improving.”

The deflated coach moved to take responsibility for the defeat but refused to resign from his post, insisting Brazil have not been left behind by the football powers.

However, the defeat does mark both Brazil’s worst ever defeat at a World Cup in their history and also the biggest semi-final defeat at any World Cup finals – it is the first semi-final Brazil has lost since 1938 too.
