Scolari is responsible.

He took a team and after the unfortunate incident with Neymar made a tamasha out of it.

The tamasha continued before the semifinal started with the Neymar shirt waving.

The tamasha concluded with the semifinal and the crying started.

At the highest level you might get away with an emotional performance in a high octane individual sport like boxing - Maybe. It won't work in tennis. In team sports an emotional team is going to get carved up. You can come full of energy but still need discipline.

You can do the tamasha after the match but before you need to be focused on the match at hand.

Garinchha Curse
by ojama on Jul 10, 2014 12:14 PM

The injury to their star striker Neymar, yellow carding of their captain and a disastrous performance in semi finals against Germany may have some thing to do with Garinchha Curse, for the nation and its people made very good thing out of him but paid no regard and respect to their star and football legend Mane Garinchha for his superlative contribution to their 1958, 1962 and 1970 WC victory.

Silva and Neymar.
by satya saka on Jul 10, 2014 11:00 AM

Neymar should have trained a few others too. Like what Messi did. At 19 years to be at he helm of football is quite immature. and not to have quality footballers in the bench is a serious crime. Brazil has to pay for incompetence

Team Brazil was without Rudder, Direction or power. With Silva gone and Neymar injured, wat every tam must learn is not to depend too much on few men.
Hulk or Oscar or Liuz, were at best average.
Why did they loose morale ,they knew they depended too much on Neymar, was this a selfish move that backfired breaking the back of both Brazil and Neymar

The same situation happened in 1998 WC in France....
by SUDHAKAR on Jul 10, 2014 10:09 AM

When Ronaldo,the key striker was unfit to play in the Final against France due to bad health. But medias & Team mgmt. said that he wouldnot play in final against France.But inspite of it he played but didnot played well due to ill health.Other wise it wouldhave been a second consecutive WC title for Brazil after they won in 1994.

Except for one game in this tournament

Brazil has looked average at best...had this word cup been out of Brazil I doubt they would have even reached round 2

One bad day in Office does not mean DEATH of Yellow jersey

You just can't mark yesterday's defeat as DEATH for Brazil team. It's just a bad day in office. If you consider the facts that their two of best players were out of game (Neymar, Silva) and the kind of pressure they had to reach to final against Germany put them in immense pressure.

Last moment team changes in the team's defense & strike position also did not help brazil's cause.

Let's say it was a bad game for team Brazil and its over. But let's not call it death of yellow jersey. They have won 5 FIFA world cup and this can not be a fluke. Please respect them for what they have achieved and they are still capable of winning many more world cups. Please stop all negative journalism.

If a team depends so much on just two players...then I am afraid its too fragile.
sorry no mercy for Brazil.

BTW Germany was also in a similar situation...more than a few players had injury niggles and were not really at 100% throughout this worldcup.
But no one, including Germany, cared too much.

Sorry no mercy for the world's greatest fakers, feigners, whiners and fifa pets..Brazil

Ok, Salil, thanks for spending your time concerning about Brazil team. But we don�t need your mercy and you should also save your hate for something more useful. That was the worst match of the team in history, in the worst place and moment.A bad day in the office, or at most an unsuccesful project of the centenary institution. By the way, we have a lot of other things to be concerned about, soccer is fun for us as well.

Mr Salil if India too had the resources to hire foreigners and give them citizenship then we too could have become a power in WC football. ..... Most of the European teams are doing just that because the money in football is in the European Leagues so FIFA turns a blind eye towards them...

Amen to that. I simply skip all caps comments. Wish google makes chrome add-in to do easy sanitize (lower case).
