Germany thoroughly embarrassed Brazil in the semifinals of the 2014 World Cup. In fact, in was one of the most epic beat downs in the history of the tournament. Prepare to be impressed as these five interesting facts about the match are astonishing.
If you thought Germany’s five goals in the first half were unbelievable, you’re not alone. It was the most goals ever scored in a first half by a single team in the history of the World Cup.
The loss was Brazil’s worst defeat in their home country in 94 years, when the national team lost 6-0 to Uruguay in the Copa America. To add salt to the wound, the victory gave Germany its record eighth visit to the World Cup Finals.
Brazil’s Ronaldo is a World Cup legend. However, a new legend reigns supreme as striker Miroslav Klose became the all-time leading scorer in World Cup history. He scored his 16th career World Cup goal during the match.
The 7-1 win might be the most astonishing part about the match. Think about it, a team was beat by six goals in the semifinals of the World Cup. As many have guessed, no team has ever won by that large of a margin in a semifinal game in the history of the World Cup.
Along with the previous fact, Germany’s seven goals were the most scored in a semifinals match in World Cup history.
