Brazil v Germany, played on 13 July 2014, was an association football match played between Brazil and Germany in the Semi-final of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Germany's 7–1 win was the largest in FIFA World Cup semi-final history. To some, it became known as the Miracle of Rio de Janeiro.[1] To others it was called the Mineirazo or "Mineirazo", comparing it with the famous "Maracanazo", in which Brazil lost an important game against Uruguay in the 1950 World Cup.[2]

Background[change | change source]

The team met for the second time in World Cup history, with the first game being the 2002 FIFA World Cup final. In the previous game against Colômbia, Neymar suffered a fractured vertebra and Thiago Silva was banned due to him getting too many yellow cards in the tournament.
