A picture is worth a thousand words, and in a way, photos seem more fitting than words for Germany’s shocking 7-1 victory over Brazil in Tuesday’s World Cup semifinal.
From the agony of Brazilian fans watching their team suffer such an embarrassing defeat on home soil to the players feeling that shame, the mood around Brazil on Tuesday was beyond somber — the happenings were beyond belief.
Germany, meanwhile, made the match look like a walk-through, scoring five goals in the opening 30 minutes to ensure that the match was never in doubt. The Germans now move on to their eighth World Cup final.
