I was embarrassed by David Luiz, holding up that shirt at the national anthems, even though I knew he had an ego about him, but I was surprised by Julio Cesar with his experience that he would go through with it too. It was totally embarrassing that they allowed that to happen. When I saw that No. 10 shirt hanging between those two I assumed they had retired it, that Neymar had died.
Would you see England players doing the same for Wayne Rooney? No, they would say, ‘hang on a moment, we aren’t just about one player, it’s about us now and we are going to do a job’. You never show your weakness – never – but Brazil made clear how much the loss of Neymar had affected them and it played straight into Germany’s hands.
When you think about players like Zico, Rivaldo, Socrates, Pele, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo and all the rest, they were all superior players to Neymar but you never had the same level of fawning adulation. They still believed they had the best players irrespective of their star man. This team was entirely dependent on one personality.

European teams don't know how to play football except France and this Latinamerican teams. Great world cup, no tiki-taka, dinamic football, attractive, full of surprises, goals, etc. That's what is this game about!
