Chelsea defender Luiz: Huge pressure on Brazil to win World Cup

Chelsea defender David Luiz admits Brazil's players are under huge pressure to deliver the World Cup this summer.

Luiz is a cornerstone of Brazil's defence for 2014.

"We need to win - there is a big pressure on us," he told the Daily Mail.

"For Brazilian people we have been waiting for this World Cup for more than 60 years. Everyone in Brazil loves football and wants to see us win the title.

"Germany have won one and lost one at home. Italy have won one and lost one at home.

"Brazil have lost just once - so now is the time to win. We have the best opportunity because we are at home.

"But because it is in our country the pressure will be greater on us than other countries. There is big pressure."
