Carlos Dunga has stepped down as Brazil coach following their World Cup elimination by Holland.
Dunga said: "We are all extremely saddened. We didn't expect this and we hoped for a different result.
"We knew it was going to be a very delicate, very difficult game, but we weren't able to maintain the rhythm we had in the first half in the second half."
Asked about his future, Dunga added: "We knew when I started that I would be here for four years.
"It's sad, it's difficult, nobody prepares to lose."
Goalkeeper Julio Cesar was as shocked by the result as his coach but told his team-mates to try not to be too downbeat.
"It's not the end of the world," Cesar told a television reporter as a tear rolled down his face.
"I just think now we have to leave with our heads held high.
"In Brazil people always put a lot of pressure on us. This was a result no one expected. Every game Brazil enters, we enter to win."
