Brazil’s World Cup hopes were left in tatters after Germany marched on to the final with a humiliating 7-1 win over the home side.
Germany scored five goals in the first 30 minutes to put the match well out of sight and leave Luis Felipe Scolari’s team stunned.
Thomas Muller opened the scoring, followed by a record-breaking strike from Miroslav Klose (who became the all time top scorer in World Cup history). Toni Kroos added a brace and Sami Khedira made it five in the 29th minute.
Chelsea’s Andre Schurrle bagged a brace in the second half, with his second goal one of the stand-out strikes of the tournament. It was the first time that any team scored seven goals in a World Cup semi-final.
