2014 World Cup Review: Brazil Slaughtered by a Rampant Germany

Updated on July 19, 2017

The Goals

First Half

Germany scored 5 goals in the first half hour of the match.

Thomas Müller scored the first at the 11 minute mark, followed less than 15 minutes later by Miroslav Klose at the 23 point. The final three goals of the first half cam in quick succession. Toni Kroos scoring 2 within two minutes at 24 and 26 minutes and then Sami Khedira finishing off the first half goals with a one on 29 minutes.

Second Half

André Schürrle Scored both of Germany's second half goals at 69 and 79 minutes.

Oscar pulled one back for Brazil right at the death.

There will be no Carnival Atmosphere in Brazil tonight.

Brazilian football fans are in shock after their team lost in the World Cup Semi Final to a Germany side who were 5-0 up by the time the half time whistle sounded. They have not been a team at there best right the way through the tournament and just have not played with the passion fans have come to respect over the years. It has been at times as if they are just not bothered about winning the biggest tournament in football on home turf. For most of the first half their defense reminded me of England's shoddy performance at the back.

Germany were the team with passion and they showed the samba stars that the Europeans can take the South Americans on on their turf and win. It was a thrill to watch them but Brazil's performance made me cringe.

The second half saw Brazil start to fight back but to no avail as they just could not get the ball passed the German Goalkeeper. They also let their guard down at the other end again and let in two more goals.

Oscar did manage a consolation goal right at the end of the game so it ended 7-1 to Germany.

This is Brazil's worst ever defeat and it being on home soil will make it all the more bitter.

Brazil's downfall was the loss of there star player Naymar who was one of the only members of the team to be playing with the passion we all know and love. You would have thought that the whole team would have played with passion in front of a home crowd who are now wondering what might have been.

It is time for Brazil to go back to the drawing board and take a good look at the team. There is a lot of work to be done to get the passion back into the team.
