#FIFAWorldCup: I Ask for the Forgiveness of the Brazilian People, Says David Luiz

Brazil's stunned football stars struggled to explain one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history after they lost their semi-final 7-1 to Germany on Tuesday.

"It is difficult to explain the inexplicable," said 34-year-old goalkeeper Julio Cesar after the record defeat.

"We had the worst game of our lives and Germany the best of their lives," added stand-in captain David Luiz who was at the centre of the defence that crumbled.

"Until now everything had gone very well. We had been very strong. It is so unexpected," said Cesar.

"Now we need to return home and be comforted by our families."

After Thomas Mueller's 11th minute opener, Germany sealed their passage to an eighth World Cup final with a stunning four-goal spree in six minutes just before the half hour mark.

Miroslav Klose became the World Cup's all-time leading scorer with his side's second of the evening. Sami Khedira and two apiece from Toni Kroos and Andre Scherrle made it 7-0 before Oscar's late consolation.

"I am sorry for not being able to make the fans happy. We didn't win it and I ask for the forgiveness of all the Brazilian people," said Luiz, who took over the captain's armband from the suspended Thiago Silva.

"They were better and we conceded four goals in six minutes. It is a day of great sadness."
