Germany Thrashes Brazil 7-1 in Historic World Cup Semi-FinalPublished July 9, 2014 by OCR Editor
World Cup history was made in yesterday's first Semi-Final when Germany demolished Brazil with an amazing 7-1 victory.
World Cup history was written in blood yesterday in the Belo Horizonte stadium as Germany humiliated hosts Brazil with an unprecedented 7-1 defeat. Heartbreaking images of Brazilian fans shedding tears and leaving the stadium were seen as five German goals already flew into the Brazilian net just 29 minutes into the game.
Broken Records Everywhere
In one single game Germany managed to break a whole bunch of records, including: surpassing Brazil as the nation scoring the most goals in all World Cups with 223 goals to 221; becoming the first team to score 4 goals in six minutes and five under 29 minutes in a World Cup; Miroslav Klose became the top scorer in World Cup history surpassing Brazil's Ronaldo (16 goals to 15); surpassing Brazil as the team with most appearances in World Cup finals (8 to 7); and winning the biggest victory in World Cup Semi-Final history.
The game has also made internet history: Twitter has reported that there were 35.6 million tweets about the game – the most ever for a single sports game.
Darkest of Days for Brazilian Football
It was 12 years ago in the South-Korea and Japan World Cup final when Brazil beat Germany 2-0, guided by current coach Felipe Scolari. Yesterday seemed like the culmination of many years of German conclusions made by that loss and others. It was the darkest of days for Brazilian football which now opens a clean sheet for a lot of rehabilitation work.
The Germans didn't lose their head following the match, focusing on the final against the yet undecided rival on Sunday, as Thomas Muller put it: "We haven't reached our goal yet, we will put our foot to the floor once again and put our heart and souls into it to win this thing."
