Jose Mourinho has described how Brazil's utter humiliation against Germany last night, which saw them lose 7-1 and bow out of the World Cup, will live long in the memory of everyone who witnessed it. 

The Chelsea manager, discussed in an interview with Yahoo - who is the Global Ambassador for - how he feels extreme compassion for the host nation's complete capitulation in their semi-final and that it will always be remembered.

As Germany lead Brazil 5-0 before 30 minutes in Belo Horizonte last night, the whole world watched on in astonishment and disbelief, as some of the goals resembled a typical English 'Sunday League' match.

Mourinho, however, explains how sometimes these things do happen in football but also that Brazil's passion and belief, may of hindered their vision on reality.

“This is something that in football sometimes it happens and is difficult to explain. But the problem for them in my opinion was that the spirit they built in the national team," Mourinho told Yahoo.

"And they probably thought that spirit would be enough, and would be the main quality to win the World Cup was not enough. It was enough arrive to arrive into the semi-finals. In the semi-finals, they face a team that was better than them.

"In fifty years’ time our kids will know that Brazil lost at home against Germany, one to seven. From my point of view, from the professional point of view, it's heart-breaking and I'm really sorry for them.”

The Portuguese boss also went to highlight how Germany's attitude and professionalism, plays a big factor in how they control games which ultimately exploit Brazil's fragile defence, to the point of no return.

He added: "A team that behave with a fantastic stability and confidence in this game. Everything went in their direction. They catch Brazil in a very fragile defensive situation." 

David Luiz

After the game, much of the blame was being harshly directed certain players in the Brazil team, with David Luiz at the centre of the controversy for his string of mistakes, which lead to Joachim Löw team cut through them like knife through butter. 

The likes of Thomas Müller, Toni Kroos and André Schürrle scored at ease against, what seemed to be a non-existent line of defense with Luiz appealing to be lost all over the pitch.

However, the Stamford Bridge boss explains, how the whole team are to blame, not just one man. 

“I don't think it's fair to separate a player from the team, because the team was really bad. David made mistakes? Yes he did. But, Dante made mistake, Marcelo made mistakes, Fernandinho made mistakes," Mourinho continued.

"I think all of us are feeling really sorry for them. Because it is a historical moment. A moment that we will remember forever the same way that we all know that once many, many, many years ago, once Brazil lost a World Cup final against Uruguay in America and the same way my son who is fourteen years old son knows that."

Record breaker

The dramatic scoreline wasn't the only moment in history, as cultured German striker Miraslav Klose scored the sides second goal, which now makes him the all time record goalscorer in World Cup finals, overtaking the Brazilian legend Ronaldo Nazário.

The 36-year-old Lazio striker, has now played in four World Cups, scoring a total of 16 goals in the process. Mourinho has acknowledged such a great achievement but admits that he doesn't think the german is the best forward he's seen. 

He concluded: “I like him a lot, and I respect his career a lot and I respect the numbers. Because the numbers are absolutely amazing. That fact that, at 36 years old, he plays and scores in a world cup semi-final - full respect.

"But the reality is that a player that I consider after Maradona, when Maradona stop his career, the next generation, I think Ronaldo was the best player in the last two decades. I think Ronaldo Nazário was the best. And he lost the record today.

"For Miroslav to beat Ronaldo record, to beat him, in this moment, the leader of the scoring is really amazing.”
