After devastating loss, Brazil trying to shift focus to 3rd-place match at home World Cup

The Brazilian players are trying to put the devastating loss to Germany behind them as quickly as possible, turning their focus to the farewell match at their home World Cup on Saturday.

Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari says "life goes on," and the team "already has a new" objective: win the third-place game to give fans some reason to celebrate.

Scolari on Wednesday said he knows the 7-1 result against Germany is going to hurt forever, but stressed that a "bad loss" can't erase what he considered was an otherwise good campaign by the national team.
