That was a savage beatdown. Germany scored 5 of their goals in the first 33 minutes of the game.

This would be akin to the Green Bay Packers scoring five touchdowns (and all the extra points) on the San Francisco 49ers in the 1st quarter of an NFC Championship game to go to the Super Bowl. Game over almost immediately.

One German player named Miroslav Klose has even set the record for most total World Cup goals.

“One German player named Miroslav Klose has even set the record for most total World Cup goals.”

Passing the previous holder, Ronaldo, a Brazilian in Brazil.

This is the worst loss Brazil could have ever imagined.

I guess because they're the host nation team and they have the most World Cup wins.

A German fan there just told me: "they recommended to the Germany fans in the stadium to stay seated and be escorted out, for security reasons so they don't get hurt by angry Brazil fans."

I think if Argentina had beaten them in the final it would’ve been worse. Heck, we might get a third place game of Brazil vs Argentina, that really could be some salt in the wound.

They were in the beginning up to last week.

SEE HERE:

The injury of their star player and top scorrer, Neymar, might have changed the odds.

Although many Westerners are unaware,Brazil is one of the most violent nations on earth.A few years ago we took a day tour of Rio and surrounding areas and the guide told us that the "favelas" (slums) of Rio are so dangerous that the Brazilian army dares not try to enter them *during daylight hours*.

It's still early in Brazil's large cities...let's see what happens.

My boss back in the 70s was transferred to our branch in Belo Horizonte and was shot in his home by bandits. Another work associate was robbed on the street there. And I assume it’s gotten worse.

I don’t know if Brazil has something like the Witness Protection Program, but if they do, Team Brazil is gonna need it.

Immediately.

Their defense absolutely stunk. It wasn't Neymar's injury that triggered that meltdown.

They all play their club soccer outside of Brazil.

The keeper plays in Toronto. Same as Witness Protection Program.

Haven’t seen that many weeping Brazilians since Anderson Silva got his ass beat (the first time) by Weidman.

The World Cup is like the early days of the space race, when it all came down to whose Germans would win.

I had high hopes for Columbia and their coach Jose Pekerman. Not that I know that much about them, but I relished the prospect of the media saying "Pekerman" over and over again.

Pekerman isn't actually German, though, and the country isn't actually spelled "Columbia." Maybe it's just as well they're out. I still remember when one of their players put the ball in the wrong net and got killed for it.

Without Silva to run the defense, the game was pathetic. Neymar wouldn’t have helped the loss though it might have been closer. And a big plus: Germany is really good.

I have almost zero knowledge of the game of soccer, but it looked for all the world that after the third or fourth goal, the Brazilian players basically gave up and tanked the match.

I guess Brazil i not the same without the famous Pele.
I was at the 1970 world cup in Mexico city when Brazil beat Italy.

One team gets into the zone. The other team gets rattled and collapses. That's a recipe for a blowout in any sport. You usually don't see such an epic collapse at this level, but ....

Y'all might remember the Redskins' (can I say that here?) perfect quarter vs. Denver in Sort-of-Superbowl Whatever. Doug Williams, a solid journeyman quarterback, was surrounded by a good defense, the posse, and the Hogs, and had a great season. Against Denver, the 'Skins came up with a perfect second quarter and scored 35 points. They could do no wrong, Denver could do no right, and boom. That's what happened today for a twelve minute stretch in Germany vs. Brazil. It's beautiful, scary, and eerie to watch.

Of the sports with which I'm most familiar, basketball is the most prone to this sort of thing. You are plugging along on a pretty competitive game, the score one minute is 36-32, and the next time you look up, it's suddenly 58-34. The big difference in basketball is that the coach can call a time out to try to break the momentum. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't.

In the ten years I've watched my daughters play soccer (ok, not quite at the World Cup level ....), I've seem my older daughter's team, a reasonably competitive travel team, lose one game that looked as ugly. Fortunately, they've had perhaps three games that broke big the other way. That's over ten years. It happens. It's probably rarer in soccer than most other sports because of the dearth of scoring, but there are exceptions. We saw one today. History ... and I only wonder how much Germany could have scored if they hadn't called off the dogs after the fourth goal.

I think your right but they did come back for a few minutes in the second half only to collapse again. No apparent leadership on the field and Germany is a much better team.
