(CNN) — Never in her worst nightmares did Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff imagine such a crushing soccer defeat, she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview on Wednesday.
“My nightmares never got so bad, Christiane,” she said through an interpreter. “They never went that far. As a supporter, of course, I am deeply sorry because I share the same sorrow of all supporters. But I also know that we are a country that has one very peculiar feature. We rise to the challenge in the face of adversity. We are able to overcome.”
