The rendition of the Brazilian national anthem prior to Brazil's 2-0 Confederations Cup win over Mexico was emotional, with fans and players spontaneously joining in to sing together after the music finished playing over the stadium's public address system.

Asked about the anthem after the match, defender Marcelo told reporters : "I looked over and saw Oscar with tears in his eyes. It was emotional."

Teammate David Luiz added: "It was one of the most beautiful moments of my life."

Even English referee Howard Webb was really moved by the moment.

"He told me that he had never in his life been present for something like that - the music stopping and people continuing to sing," Seleção coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said of Webb's reaction.

"He told me 'Felipe, it really moved me'. Coming from an Englishman, that says a lot."
