Cape Town - After being booed off the field in the second half of Brazil's catastrophic performance, Fred has spoken about his worst defeat. 

Brazil's 7-1 World Cup semi-final defeat to Germany was described as "a scar that will forever live in all of our lives" by Fred, the player who is being targeted by fans for his woeful SWC showing.

The Telegraph quote the bumbling forward as describing last night's match as the "worst of my career".

Fred was as tearful and distraught as the rest of the Brazil squad after the humiliating loss at the hands of the Germans.

Fred said turning in such a performance was hugely disappointing and that it was certainly the worst of any Brazil player's career.

The bright side being then that no player has conceded more goals and on a greater stage.

The forward was booed off the pitch when he left the field in the second half as the home fans finally gave up on him as a goal scoring option.

Fred suggests seeking help from a higher power to overcome the emotion and shock of the result.
