Emotional Luiz apologises for 7-1 rout

Heartbroken Brazil captain David Luiz has apologised to the nation after suffering a record 7-1 World Cup semi-final defeat to Germany.

"Apologies to everybody, apologies to all the Brazilian people," said a tearful Luiz after the mauling in Belo Horizonte.

"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."

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari went on to ask for forgiveness from his countrymen after his team's historic World Cup thrashing by Germany.

"We ask for forgiveness," a shellshocked Scolari said after Brazil were torn apart 7-1 in their semi-final meltdown.

"To the people, please excuse us for this negative mistake."
