Okay I still cannot believe what I just watched. Did Germany really just beat Brazil 7-1?
I am genuinely sad. I am not Brazilian or anything but everyone always roots for the host nation right? Except of course they are playing against your country.
The issue isn’t really the fact that Germany won but it was how they won that was a bit disturbing. 7-1? A part of me feels like I just watched a movie honestly.
Even the most expectant German fans wouldn’t have imagined a better result and even the most cynical of fans wouldn’t have thought of such a score line. Definitely not in a match between Brazil and Germany.
I was hoping for some reason that the Germans will cut them some slack and stop scoring in the second half. Five goals were enough and all. But nope! They kept at it and got two more goals .
Well, all I have to say is I hope Brazil wins the third place match and I secretly hope that Germany wins the World Cup. At least then, the Brazilians can say they lost to the World Champions. Does that make it any better? Maybe not. I doubt there’s anything that will make them feel better.
The 2014 World Cup has sure been full of surprises.
