In an absolutely embarrassing performance by Brazil coupled with a world-class game by Germany, the Germans shocked the world by going 5-0 up at half-time.

In the second half, Brazil substitutes Paulinho and Ramires strengthened the midfield and kept the scoreline respectable, and couldn’t prevent Germany from winning the match 7-1.
