The loss at the Bela Horizonte is going to dent the psyche of Brazilian fans for years to come. For the Germans on the other hand, it was a day in Disneyland. After the first 5 minutes they were all over the samba boys and by the time the first half whistle was blown, the dejected faces of the Brazilian team were pitiable.
Toni Kroos joined the party in the 24th minute with two consecutive goals just within a few minutes of each other.
Sami Khedira’s goal in the 29th minute further added to the host team’s misery. At half time Luiz Felipe Scolari looked like a ghost who would not be able to endure the debauchery any more.
The Germans continued their ruthless attack with Andre Schuerrle’s goals in the 69th and the 79th minute consecutively in the second half.
Oscar scored a solitary goal for the host nation in the 90th minute but that wasn’t even a consolation for Brazilian fans. Understandably, Brazilian fans and players alike were left in tears after the match. David Luiz apologized to the fans for their devastating performance.
Scolari too appealed to the people of the country to excuse their performance in the semi finals.
The match set many records off the pitch as well. With 35.6 million Tweets, the match became the most- discussed single sports game ever in the history of the site.
