Brazil VS Germany
2014 WORLD CUP SEMIFINAL
1-7
Germany

Both Brazil and Germany reached the semifinals with an undefeated record in the competition, with the Brazilians' quarterfinals with Colombia causing them to lose striker Neymar to injury, and defender and captain Thiago Silva to accumulation of yellow cards. Despite the absences, a close match was expected, given both teams were traditional FIFA World Cup forces, sharing eight tournaments won and having previously met in the 2002 FIFA World Cup Final where Brazil earned their fifth title.

Brazil 1, Germany 7. It was the result for which the 2014 World Cup will be forever remembered but even now, just simply the scoreline retains its capacity to shock. 7-1! Those numbers were relayed on front-pages across the world the following day but none felt more eerie than the cover of the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo. The image simply of the scoreboard in Belo Horizonte amid all the surrounding darkness was brilliantly appropriate. Amidst the chaos, it went almost unnoticed that Klose’s goal had also made him the World Cup’s all-time leading goalscorer. The record he had surpassed was that of Brazil icon Ronaldo. Germany had also moved past Brazil as the highest team scorers in World Cup history. The atmosphere inside the Estadio Mineirao was extraordinary. (Telegraph.co.uk)
