Germany’s Thomas Muller has expressed his sympathy for Brazil, saying they did not deserve to be humiliated in their own World Cup.
Joachim Low’s side dished out an incredible 7-1 annihilation in last night’s semi-final against the tournament hosts, with the 24-year-old scoring the opener.
However, the Bayern Munich man insisted that despite his happiness at his side’s victory, it is hard not to feel for the South Americans.
“Brazil don’t deserve this and I’m saying that to my teammates, because there are a lot of great players in their team,” Muller told reporters.
“They didn’t deserve to lose in that way, in their country and in their stadium in front of a big crowd.
“Losing 7-1 is bad for the heart. I’m thinking about my friends like Luiz Gustavo and I’m wondering how they feel at the moment.
“They didn’t deserve something like this but I know that my words will not be enough to console them.
“We have a great team, the result is the fruit of our work and the spirit of our group. We are very united.”
