Brazil football team shamed by crushing defeat.
The FIFA 2014 witnessed its most shocking match on July 8, 2014, as the Brazilian football team was profusely beat by the Germans. The latter scored a whopping 7 goals against the host country’s team, making Brazilian football fans cringe with shame and dismay.
Miroslav Klose managed to score a record setting 16th career World Cup Goal during the first half of the game when the defense was torn apart.
With this match, the Germans have reached their eighth final and will have to face Argentina and Netherlands on July 13, 2014 at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. The previous loss of Brazil was 3-0 to France in the year 1998 in the finals. This match has proved to be their biggest defeat ever in any competition. In 1920, Uruguay had lost for 6-0 in the South American championship.
David Luiz, the defender said, “We wanted to make the people happy … unfortunately we couldn’t, We apologize to all Brazilians”.
This has also become the first loss for Brazil in the tournament on their home soil since 1975 when Peru had won 3-1 at the Mineirao Stadium in Copa America. The attack of Brazil had gone down due to the loss of Neymar, who fractured a vertebra after he got kneed in the back during the quarterfinal win over Colombia.
