Posted on 07/08/2014 2:55:47 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Germany routed Brazil 7-1 today to reach the World Cup final, handing them its worst loss ever and breaking the hearts of millions of Brazilians.
Brazil played without its injured striker Neymar, who had suffered a fractured vertebra in his lower back last Friday during its quarterfinal clash against Colombia.

Burritos meet the panzers...
Brazilian goalie now needs security......or political asylum...........
Can someone link me to a world cup thread. Haven’t been able to find one.
Makes US showing against Germany all the more impressive.
Well, they said the games were rigged.
or political asylum...........sorry to old to come here and besides, he might work and be married to a woman~~
When did Brazil become the favorite?
That was a beat down.
Rioting in Brazil will start in 3...2...1...
Guardian play by play of the massacre.
'90+1 min: It's a measure of how downright German the Germans are that Manuel Neuer and his defenders were absolutely furious with each other for allowing Brazil to score that late goal.....'
Of epic proportion. This will linger for decades.
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.
Brazil got beat like Muhammad’s wife—the ugly, mouthy one.
“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.
Huh? Don't ask me........
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.
I wish I was at the World Cup.
RE: When did Brazil become the favorite?
They were in the beginning up to last week.
The injury of their star player and top scorrer, Neymar, might have changed the odds.
It would seem so. Is it bad form to do that to the host country?
Awesome. Go Euroweenies!
Oh, dear. I may want to leave the hemisphere. BTT
Ve beat zeez untermensch, ja.
It was sarcasm. I posted the same comment on 3 different threads and passed on two others.
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.
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.
I think historically, Columbia has the worst record of killing its soccer players........
Good thought. Brazil would have to win that matchup.
Haven’t seen that many weeping Brazilians since Anderson Silva got his ass beat (the first time) by Weidman.
Silva’s suspension probably had more effect today.
“The keeper plays in Toronto. Same as Witness Protection Program.”
Or what the Seahawks did to the Broncos in the SuperBowl!
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.
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.
