The article speaks about the dominance of Germany against Brazil in the Semi-finals of the FIFA World cup Soccer 2014. Germany defeated Brazil 7 - 1.
On Tuesday, Germany thrashed Brazil 7 -1 in the 1st Semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup 2014. They are the most successful team in this world cup and are hot favourites to lift the Cup. It will not make any difference whether Germany faces Argentina or Holland in the finals.
It had been noted a number of times that this Brazil side of 2014 had not been tested. Brazil was kept in a weak group with worst teams like Cameroon. In the second round and quarter-finals also Brazil faced less calibre teams like Columbia. Brazil did not face France, Switzerland or Holland, so there was over-hype of the team with less talent.
It was sad that Neimaar and Silva were not playing the match. Neimaar got injured and was ruled out of the World cup. But that did not make that difference.
Both the countries produced gems, if Brazil was proud of Pele, Garincha, Toastao, Zico, Socrates, Ronaldinyo, Germany was proud of Gaard Muller, Beckenbower, Ruminegge, Follar, Mathews, Clinsman and others.
Germany was a much superior side. Muller started the scoring by placing the ball within 11 minutes of the beginning of the match. Muller with 5 goals in this World Cup is still in the hunt for golden boot. Rodriguez of Columbia had scored 6 goals in this World Cup and still now the highest scorer.
Miroslav Klose scored the 2nd goal and broke the record of Ronaldo with 15 goals. Klose had scored 16 goals to his credit and is the highest scorer ever. He had created World record.
Germany also created world record yesterday in the semi-finals by scoring 5 goals in the first 30 minutes. The other scorers included Khedira, Kroos scored 2 goals and Scurrle scored 2 goals. Oscar scored the only goal for Brazil in the dying hours of the second half.
It was probably the greatest victory of Germany over Brazil in the last 30 years. In fact none of the teams had faced such a shameful defeat like Brazil.
Germany has the record of going to the finals the maximum number of times. But they have lifted the World Cup only thrice. This time they have a great opportunity of lifting the cup. So they should not be complacent and have good home work about the strong points of teams Argentina and Holland. Their defence should be in a position to handle Messi or Robben.
