Host nation Brazil suffered a 7-1 humilation in the heads of Germany in their semi final 2014 World Cup match. Germany gave one of the most breathtaking displays of offensive firepower in World Cup history Tuesday – demolishing host Brazil in the semifinals, 7-1, to advance to the championship game.
Germany's goal total was the most ever by one team in a World Cup semifinal, while Brazil matched its worst-ever margin of defeat and allowed seven goals for the first time in 80 years.
Brazil also lost its first official competitive match at home since 1975. "The responsibility for this catastrophic result is mine,'' Brazil's coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said.
"I was in charge.'' The Germans seized control early, scoring five times in the first 30 minutes at Estadio Mineirao in Belo Horizonte. Two of those goals came off the foot of Toni Kroos, and teammate Miroslav Klose recorded one to become the all-time scoring leader in World Cup history with 16 goals.
Earlier in the tournament, Klose tied the prior record of 15 held by former Brazilian star Ronaldo.
Germany's Andre Schuerrle also scored twice, both in the second half. Thomas Mueller and Sami Khedira each added a goal for Germany, which will appear in a record eighth World Cup final. Oscar redeemed some pride for Brazil with a goal in the 90th minute.
