The famous squad lost to Germany in a shocking 7-1 World Cup semifinal on Tuesday, leading many disappointed fans to wonder if the players had been drugged or were dealing with diarrhea.
“I had a dream about of having the players act really lethargic and confused, like they hadn’t slept in a few days,” Scolari said after the match. “That way the Germans would let their guard down, and we’d let ‘em have it.”
“I guess we let it go a little too far, eh?” he said.
Scolari also admitted that ordering star forward Neymar to feign a broken back and pretend to be hospitalized after last week’s match against Colombia was “probably a big mistake” and didn’t seem to fool the Germans in the slightest.
