I cannot imagine how many millions of people around the world watched the match between Germany and Brazil last Tuesday, July 8, 2014. I wished good luck to my team Germany in this previous article. It was a very exciting and breath-taking game that I stayed until dawn watching it. Until now, I still cannot comprehend how did it happened. Brazil’s foot all team are also world class and they really play good. Sad to say, they lose the game against Germany during the semi-finals held at the the Estádio Mineirão in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
Germany’s players against Brazil last July 8, 2014. Sorry for the blurry picture. Thanks to ARD TV for this.
Someone told me that Germany always win against the host-country and this time, they did it again and their dream to be the world’s football champion continues.
During the first 18 minutes of play, Germany already did 5 goals. Thomas Müller did the first goal and was followed by Miroslav Klose. It was his 16th goal at a World Cup, surpassing Ronaldo as the all-time World Cup top scorer. The Deutsche National Elf (German National team) made an over all 7 goals winning against Brazil who has only 1 goal.
Footballs fans from Germany who watched the game live in the stadium in Brazil.
Germany, meanwhile, advanced to the final in the Estádio do Maracanã, which had been the stage of the Maracanazo in 1950, in Rio de Janeiro. In this final, which is to be played on 13 July 2014, they will face Argentina, who beat the Netherlands on penalties in their semi-final in São Paulo the next day, in a match that stood in stark contrast with the Mineirazo.

The game’s result was the biggest-ever winning margin in a World Cup semi-final or final.The outcome was also the worst loss by a host country in World Cup history, as the six-goal difference doubled the previous record margin.
Once again, congratulations Germany. You are indeed a world class football team! Sorry for Brazil. Better luck next time. Lastly, I want to say good luck to your game against Argentina tomorrow, July 13,2014. All the best!
