The 2014 FIFA World Cup from Brazil will continue without the home team after a devastating 7-1 loss to Germany yesterday. With Neymar and Thiago Silva out of action, Brazil was absolutely pummeled on the pitch in the first half, as the Germans strung together four goals in under ten minutes. Their second goal of the afternoon came from Miroslav Klose, whose 23′ goal put him over Brazil’s Ronaldo for the most World Cup goals scored of all time with 16. Toni Kroos and Andre Schurrle were also huge factors in Germany’s offensive blitzkrieg, with each turning in a pair of goals. At the last minute of action, Oscar managed to score the lone goal for Brazil, finishing off what will be remembered as one of the most embarrassing World Cup performances in modern history. Now, all eyes are on today’s match between the Netherlands and Argentina to see who will join Germany in the finals.
