Brazilian Captain David Luiz Wept Through His Entire Post-Match Interview

By 07.09.14


David Luiz served as the Brazilian captain yesterday during the historic 7-1 thrashing by Germany. After the final whistle sounded, the frizzy-haired star joined the rest of his countrymen in a public weeping session.

Watch the post-match interview he gave and try to think of a time you’ve seen an athlete shed this many tears.

Here’s what he said in case your Portuguese is a little rusty.

“Apologies to everybody, apologies to all the Brazilian people.

“I just wanted to see my people smile. We all know how important it was for me to see all of Brazil be happy, at least because of football.

“They were better than us. They prepared better. They played better.

“It’s a very sad day but it’s also a day from which to learn.”

If you think this is an overreaction, know that members of the  1950 Brazilian team which lost the final by one goal are still widely considered pariahs in the country. 1950!

Unfortunately for Luiz & Co., they have to play a third-place game on Saturday. That’s going to be a bummer.
