Julio Cesar in tears after World Cup Exit (Video)

Heartache for Selecao shot stopper, Julio Cesar, as he was in tears after their World Cup exit by the hands of Netherlands.

The 30-year-old Brazilian goal keeper is considered to be the best in the world. He had been in stunning form for his club (Inter Milan) and his series of superb performances earned the Club the treble last season.

Kaka Emotions were running high when Julio Cesar appeared for a post-match interview. Though the clip is in Portuguese but still you can always measure the magnitude of pain for their World Cup regret. It took Julio quite a while to compose himself and be able to talk over the mic. The clip clearly shows that Julio was in tears and for him the defeat was hard to take especially after the goalkeeping blunder he committed.

“We didn’t react well to the first goal. It was a ball that I had doubts on how to go to the ball with Felipe Melo,” he said.

“I think the feeling is sadness. The locker room collapsed. Our confidence was high. It was a group that rescued the feeling of admiration from the fans towards the Brazilian team. When Brazil gets to a World Cup they are always favourites…”

“We lost because we played a second half far from what we know… I’m out in the quarter-finals again. My injury is with me for a long time… I want to continue at the Selecao. This defeat will hurt the players for a long time.”

I still have high admiration for Julio and my all the sympathies and empathies are with him who played noticeably well considering the fact that he was carrying an injury. You never know, this may turn out to be his last World Cup and that goalkeeping howler can be a regret of his lifetime. The sad episode is going to be jailed in his mind for a long time but he is a champion and he has to put behind the sour happening behind him which I know is a tough ask. But this is what champions are made off, and this is what the Beautiful Game is all about. You win one day, you taste defeat the other day, and the importance of the day matters as it was Quarter Final in case of Julio. Losing always teaches you something and by far means the only cause and driving force to perform even better the next time. What we experienced was a fantastic football match (probably the best match so far in this World Cup) and one of the massive turnarounds against the very best, Brazil.
