We cannot believe what we are seeing.

Germany are 5-0 up at half time against Brazil and they haven’t even broken into a sweat.

Goals from Thomas Muller and Miroslav Klose came first, then a double from Toni Kroos tore Brazil apart. Sami Khedira added another just for good measure as Brazil’s defense fell apart in the World Cup semifinal.

Germany are 5-0 up at half time in the World Cup semifinal against Brazil, in Brazil.

Just keep saying that over and over again. This was perhaps one of the craziest and most memorable first 45 minutes of soccer in World Cup history. That is not an exaggeration.

Questions for the second half

How many will Germany get? 

They really could be 7-0 up at this point and it could get very embarrassing for Brazil if the German juggernaut continues to power through Brazil’s defense. This is one of the great attacking performances in World Cup history. Couple it with a horrendous defensive display and Germany.

Can Brazil keep this respectable?

Brazil have to concentrate and not go for broke to try and somehow whip away the lead. They need to restore pride, stay solid at the back and somehow score two or three to make it respectable.

    Dammit I thought this would be on later. And holy crap I’m speechless.

    6-0. Brazil’s players may have to ask for asylum after this one.

    On the bright side, Brazil did manage to go almost a full half’s worth of time without giving up another one. Progress!
