Brazil 1-7 Germany Left The Host Nation Stunned

Germans finally reached their 8th final and will stand against either Argentina or the Netherlands on Sunday at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Before this, the biggest World Cup loss of Brazil was 3-0 to France in the 1998 finals. This matched their biggest ever margin of defeat in any competition, equaling a 6-0 loss to Uruguay in the South American championship, the predecessor of the Copa America in 1920.

Defender David Luiz said.”We wanted to make the people happy … unfortunately we couldn’t, We apologize to all Brazilians.”

Fans Traumatized

Germany having the chance to win World Cup for the 4th time. Many fans who had been happily singing and dancing with excitement before the game, at Copacabana Beach, left before halftime, shocked by what had just unfolded.

Germany coach Joachim Loew said. “We played well in the first half obviously. But it continues. We need to be humble. We don’t want to overvalue this.”

The celebrations were in full swings in Germany, with thousands of people flocking to the avenue stretching from the Brandenburg Gate to the golden statue-topped Victory Column. The organisers extended the fan zone to 1.3 kms in anticipation of the massive crowd who thundered with excitement as each goal was banged into the Brazilian net.

It’s the first time Brazil had allowed five goals in a World Cup match since the 1938 tournament in France, when the team beat Poland 6-5 in extra time.
