A World Cup Record

This post is a personal reminder of what happened:
Date :  9th July 2014
What:  2014 World Cup Semifinal 1
Where : Estadio Mineirao Stadium, Belo Horizonte
Managers :  Joachim Leow (Germany); Luiz Felipe Scolari (Brazil)

Brazil, a proud soccer-playing nation who is now broken into mourning as it crashed to its worst ever defeat in a competitive match. It will hurt them for generations to come, even if they ever reach the pinnacle of World Cup football. This game set a list of unwanted records for Brazil, but not for Germany:
1.  Brazil's worst and biggest defeat in their 100-year history
2.  Largest margin of defeat for any nation in this stage of World Cup in history
3.  5 goals scored against one country in only the first 29 minutes
4.  First time Brazil lost an official competitive home game since 1975
5.  Most lopsided home defeat since 1975
6.  Germany's biggest World Cup win
7.  Miroslav Klose scored his 16th World Cup goal, beating Brazilian Ronaldo's record 

          Germany Lineup captained by Philipp Lahm                      Brazil lineup with Neymar's shirt held by David Luiz

11th min goal by Thomas Muller from a corner

23rd minute goal by Klose to break Ronaldo's goal record of 15
24th minute goal by Toni Kroos

Kroos' brace in the 26th minute
29th minute goal by Sami Khedira

Substitute Andre Schuerrle scored the 6th goal on 69th min
Schuerrle completed the massacre on 79th min
Oscar scored a consolation in the 90th minute
Scolari indicating 7 to Bernard who took over injured Neymar's place. What a disaster!!
