Rio de Janeiro — On Tuesday,
national soccer team of Brazilin a humiliating way. The semifinal of World Cup Soccer 2014 in Brazil had a final score of 7-1.
After a promising start of A Seleção in Belo Horizonte, it was Die Mannschaft that scored 1-0 after only 11 minutes.
Thomas Müller, who was unmarked, tapped in after a corner kick by Toni Kroos.
Brasil seemed not to understand what just happened and in the 23rd minute, Joachim Löw’s soccer squad started six unreal minutes.
First Miroslav Klose scored the 2-0.
This goal was Klose's 16th World Cup goal ever, a record in the history of World Cup soccer. Then Toni Kroos scored two goals, in the 24th and 26th minute respectively: 4-0. Within the half hour, Sami Khedira scored the fifth German goal...
Immediately after the break, the flabbergasted and already beaten Brazilian soccer team tried to make the best of it. Brasil even managed to create three good chances for Oscar and Paulinho, but Manuel Neuer is the best goalie of World Cup 2014 for a reason.
At that time, Brasil was already ridiculed by its own fans in Mineirão stadium, who were angry and driven to tears. For some reason they especially blamed poor striker Fred for everything that went wrong, while the whole current Brazilian team was exposed as a mediocre bunch of soccer players.
To make things worse, in the second half German substitute Andre Schürrle scored twice (69th and 79th minute, a tap in and a beautiful volley respectively) and a surrealistic 7-0 score was on the board. Only in the 90th minute Oscar could brush off the for the Brazilians malicious 'zero': 7-1.
Nevertheless, it was of course far too late for Brasil. The efficient Germans will play the final next Sunday, leaving the host team and an entire soccer mad nation in despair...
