Here is the touching letter that David Luiz received from a young fan

David Luiz was reduced to floods of tears after his team was thrashed 7-1 by Germany on home soil in a result that broke Brazilian hearts. But after Brazil captain David Luiz wept uncontrollably in the wake of his team’s devastating capitulation in the World Cup semi-finals, he has received some welcome support – in the form of an adorable letter from a young fan. The former Chelsea defender, wearing the skipper’s armband in the absence of Thiago Silva, cried as he said ‘I just wanted to see my people smile’ after Brazil’s hopes of winning the tournament on home turf were dashed in humiliating fashion. But his show of emotion after the final whistle had blown, prompted nine-year-old Ana Luz to pen him a letter - telling him not to be sad. The child even showed he was still her sporting hero by drawing a small picture of him holding a trophy aloft. Here is the english translation of the letter. Hi David Luiz,My name is Ana Luz. I saw all of the Brazil games in the World Cup and I liked it a lot watching you play. I think that you don't need to be sad because you played well and did the best you could. You were a great captain. Life is like this, sometimes people lose and sometimes people win but people only need to be happy. David Luiz, you are my champion. Ana Luz Penna Reale
