Brazil made its way into the World Cup semifinals for the first time in 12 years by beating Colombia 2-1 Friday, with the goals coming from defenders Thiago Silva and David Luiz.
Neymar scored the winning penalty Saturday to give Brazil a 3-2 shootout win over Chile in the second round of the World Cup. The match had ended 1-1.
Paris Saint-Germain could offer new recruit David Luiz something Chelsea couldn't: the near certainty of being a league winner next season.
Chelsea has agreed to sell David Luiz to French champion Paris Saint-Germain in a deal that will reportedly make the Brazil international the world's most expensive defender.
Behind the megawatt smile and mop of curly hair, David Luiz is aware of his duty to Brazil after being included in a World Cup squad for the first time on Wednesday.
"We wanted to make the people happy ... unfortunately we couldn't," said Brazil defender David Luiz, who had scored in each of the last two matches. "We apologize to all Brazilians."
