Brazil's 7-1 defeat in the World Cup semi-final stunned the world and left the host nation in a state of shock—and nowhere did that show more clearly than in the face of captain David Luiz.  

Luiz was consoled after the game by regular skipper Thiago Silva, who was serving a suspension.

But the tears continued to flow for Luiz, who struggled to compose himself by the time he was called upon to do a pitch-side interview.

Speaking later in the press conference, Luiz, now of Paris Saint-Germain, apologised to the nation.
