It was one of the most embarrassing, humiliating defeats for Brazil ever in their International arena as they were crashed by Germany with 7-1 goals in the first semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup. Playing with Neymar and suspended captain Thiago Silva, weakened Brazil and the defence completely failed to stop the Germans for attacking the Brazilian post. Germany have reached to their record eighth World Cup final.
Toni Kroos and Andre Schurrle scored twice for Germany while Thomas Muller, Miroslav Klose and Sami Khedira struck one goal each. Kroos scored 16 goals in this World cup so far and is highest scorer and is in clear race for the Golden Boot.
On a consolation note, Oscar of Brazil scored a goal in the 90th minute, but it was far too away from victory. Fans who pinned high hopes on Brazil were shocked, stunned with Brazil's worst ever defeat.
