A David Luiz mistake opened up the floodgates of Brazil that led to a 7-1 Germany win over the host nation.

Luiz failed to mark Thomas Muller on a first half corner kick that led to Germany's first goal. After the goal, Brazil fell apart and there was nothing Luiz could do to stop the embarrassment. The Brazilian team missed Thiago Silva and Neymar, at least psychologically if not physically. The Brazilians looked to have given up after going 2-0 down and were standing around watching Germany play. In the second half, Brazil woke up for a short amount of time but German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer refused to let them back into the match. Brazil faces the loser of Argentina and the Netherlands in the third place match on Saturday.

David Luiz scored a fantastic free kick to give Brazil a 2-0 lead over Colombia in a game that ended 2-1 in Brazil's favor.

The win sends Brazil into the semi-finals where they will face Germany. The game started with end to end action and soon enough Neymar curved in a corner kick that was finished by Thiago Silva. Later, David Luiz scored a fantastic free-kick from about 30 yards away that put Brazil in a comfortable position. Colombia were able to get one back through a James Rodriguez penalty but they couldn't find the equalizer. Colombia are now eliminated but they have impressed the world with some beautiful football and should go home proud.

Brazil and Chile played an absolute war of a match but it was the host country that managed to edge out the Chileans in a penalty shootout and they now head to the quarterfinals.

It was a 1-1 affair in regulation and remained that way through extra time. David Luiz was credited with the regulation goal that gave Brazil the early advantage, though it is questionable if he even touched the flick on by Thiago Silva. The two sides were evenly matched and Chile would later equalize to give them a chance to pull off the upset. Luiz then stepped up first and converted his shootout kick, while Neymar would take their fifth and final kick that proved to win the match. Julio Cesar made several saves, including in the shootout, to help their cause. If you didn't watch this match, hopefully you have it on DVR...this was an absolutely unforgettable contest.

Brazil XI: Julio Cesar, Dani Alves, Thiago Silva (c), David Luiz, Marcelo, Hulk, Paulinho, Fred, Neymar, Oscar, Luiz Gustavo

One change as Hulk comes back in to the starting lineup to replace Chelsea's Ramires. The hosts are the odds on favorite in their battle with Mexico and Premier Leaguers David Luiz, Paulinho and Oscar will play a part once again to try and make it happen.

Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea have both confirmed the transfer of defender David Luiz for a fee of £50million.

David Luiz has signed a five year contract. The Brazilian has been rumored to be leaving Chelsea ever since Jose Mourinho took over the club and the Blues finally cashed in on him. £50m makes him the most expensive defender in history. Luiz is a good defender but has a history of making mistakes at costly times and PSG are clearly overpaying for his services. Chelsea can find a comparable defender for half the price and will use part of the money from Luiz to help pay for the transfers of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas. John Terry and Gary Cahill should continue headlining Chelsea's center-back position.

According to Felipe Luis' agent, Chelsea will have a tough time acquiring the Brazilian defender from Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea are already rumored to have agreed on a fee for Diego Costa but rumors are also linking them up with left-back Felipe Luis. Luis' agent says it will be much tougher to get the defender this summer. Chelsea are in the market for a left-back after losing Ashley Cole to free agency. Last year, the Blues played Cesar Azpilicueta there but the Spaniard is a natural right-back and Mourinho presumably wants to move him back to his natural side. Chelsea are also interested in Southampton left-back Luke Shaw.

With reports that PSG and Chelsea have agreed on a fee that could go as high as £50m David Luiz appears Paris-bound.

With the terms agreed all that remains is for the player to sign the paperwork and pass his medical. The move comes as a bit of a surprise on three levels. The speed of it, the price, and the destination as Barcelona have been linked with a Luiz move for some time. Chelsea are smart to cash in on PSG's inflated valuation as it will allow them to retool the squad and not run afoul if FFP regulations.

A reckless David Luiz scored an own goal to help Paris Saint-Germain to a 3-1 win over Chelsea in the Champions League.

David Luiz started the game well but became more and more reckless and inconsistent in the second half. 16 minutes into the second half, he deflected a free-kick into his own net. The Brazilian has been the direct reason for several Chelsea goals this season and it appears Mourinho has been fed up with him as well. Luiz was subbed off at halftime during Chelsea's last Premier League game but a lack of midfield options forced Mourinho to play him this time out. Nemanja Matic is not allowed to play for Chelsea in the Champions League this season and with Ramires facing a one-match ban, Luiz may have to feature in the second-leg as well.

David Luiz is likely to start against Crystal Palace and holds good fantasy value for the week.

Ramires is still suspended and Frank Lampard will most likely be saved for Chelsea's Champions League match in midweek, leading us to believe David Luiz has a good chance to start in midfield on Saturday. With the possibility of a clean sheet in addition to his knack for attacking points, Luiz is worth playing at £ 10.74M. I would suggest having a bench option available in case Luiz doesn't start.

David Luiz, who has been sidelined with a groin injury, is back in training ahead of Chelsea's Champion's League match with Galatasary.

David Luiz has only a four minute cameo in league play since February 11, and will be a welcome addition to Jose Mourinho's options for the run in, but there is no need to grab him for fantasy this week with Chelsea only having the one match in a heavy double gameweek. The Galatasaray clash today promises some intriguing storylines, most notably a homecoming for Didier Drogba at Stamford Bridge, where he spent the prime of his career, scoring 100 PL goals.

David Luiz will be absent for Chelsea's trip to Aston Villa this weekend.

Luiz has been fighting various injuries this season and he will be missing once again. John Terry and Gary Cahill should start at center-back. Luiz is expected back a week from now.

David Luiz will face a late fitness test before Chelsea face Tottenham on Saturday.

Luiz has been dealing with a hip injury and despite making a short appearance off the bench last time out, he is still questionable for Saturday. While John Terry and Gary Cahill are healthy, Luiz is not guaranteed a spot in Chelsea's rotation and can be a very risky fantasy play. Avoid him for now.
Mar 7 - 5:24 PM

David Luiz came on off the bench for a few minutes in Chelsea's 3-1 win over Fulham.

Luiz came on for defensive purposes once Chelsea were already up 3-1 and didn't do anything spectacular. The good news is that he's healthy enough to be on the pitch and he should be 100% fit by the time Chelsea play again. Even when healthy, I would avoid Luiz due to his lack of a guaranteed starting spot.

David Luiz will be assessed today and has a 50/50 chance of making the squad for the match against Fulham tomorrow.

Luiz has been dealing with a hip injury and has missed Chelsea's last few games. He is behind John Terry and Gary Cahill on the pecking order and likely won't be risked against a side like Fulham. He sometimes makes an appearance in midfield, but Nemanja Matic was rested midweek and it's unlikely Mourinho goes with two extremely defensive midfielders. Luiz's best chance for action is a short appearance off the bench, but I wouldn't count on him being a good fantasy option this week.
