Embarrassing, humiliating, shameful, crushing, you could run out of adjectives to describe the night for the Brazilans as Germany trashed the home-sidein front of over 50,000 fans in what turned out to be a complete riot which ended 7-1 in the German’s favor.
It was terrible marking from Brazil as Muller peeled off his man to find himself completely free in the area early in the 11th minute to put the Germans up 1-0. This was Muller’s fifth goal of the World Cup, the same number he managed four years ago in South Africa.
Soon it became 2-0 to the German side as Miroslav Klose sealed his name in the history books with his 16th goal in World Cup football beating the legendary Brazilian striker as the highest scorer in the competition.
From this point on if you missed the next 6 minutes of the match, you’d miss Germany scoring the 3rd goal through Toni Kroos followed by the 4th in the next minute by Toni Kross again and finally before the half-hour mark you’d be left rubbing your eyes to believe the fact you’re infact witnessing Brazil going down 5-0 at home through a Sami Khedira Goal.
A first half of pure destruction by Germans led to some positive response by the Brazilians coming into the second half but Manuel Neuer didn’t seem to be in any mood to let go of his clean sheet by pulling off a series of good saves to deny the Brazilians any consolation.
And just when the Brazilians thought they were getting some decent spell of play going a simple move down the right saw Lahm and Khedira exchange passes before the former slid the ball across for an unmarked Schurrle to tap home making it 6-0. Muller was also queuing up to finish that, with Brazil’s marking scattered all over the place.
And just when the Brazilians were wondering when will the embarrassment end Germany got in behind Brazil defence again. The ball was lifted over to Schurrle, who was on the wrong side of Luiz, and he fired a magnificent strike into the top corner past Cesar. 7-0 and the Germans were on 7th heaven.
The dying moments of the match saw the slimmest consolation imaginable for Brazil as Oscar was sent through on goal, with Neuer slow off his line for once. The Chelsea man beat his marker before slamming it past Neuer straight down the middle.
It ended 7-1 and finally the crowd and the Brazilians were put out of their misery. Brazil will have to play the 3/4th place playoff in their last match of the campaign with Germany await their challenger for the World Cup 2014 title in tomorrow’s match between Argentina and Netherlands.
