8th July 2014 will certainly be remembered as one of the darkest days in the history of Brazilian football. 2014 World Cup hosts Brazil were annihilated by Germany at Estádio Mineirão, Belo Horizonte.
It is as though Brazil never had a chance as Germany thumped them with an early goal by Thomas Müller followed by 4 back to back goals by Miroslav Klose, Toni Kroos and Sami Khedira.
With a 5 – 0 scoreline at half time, only a miracle could have resulted in a turnaround for Brazil.
Things went from disastrous to catastrophic in the second half as Germany crowned that momentous win with 2 more goals by André Schürrle. Brazil closed the night with a 90th minute goal by Oscar to bring the final scoreline to 7 – 1.
With tears in their eyes and disappointment on their minds, Brazil fans will surely be asking, how did this happen?
