” 1 Brazil looks at how the international press reacted to Brazil 1-7 Germany There have been few World Cup shocks as great as that which unfolded in the Estadio Mineirao on July 8, 2014. Brazil, the five time champions and host-nation, humiliated 7-1 by Germany on their own soil in a semi-final match.

It isn’t likely to happen again any time soon, if it ever does at all, so with that in mind, talkSPORT takes a look at some of the international press reaction to the historic event. Bild: Football from another planet German daily Bild were understandably keen to bathe in the glory of the victory, with their headline reading ‘7-1 Madness: Football from another planet”. They rolled out all the superlatives in appreciation of Joachim Low and his men: “Unbelievable. Phenomenal!

World Class! After the most spectacular football performance in German World Cup history, Joachim Low and his still uncrowned heroes are only one step from the fourth title”. Ole: Brasil, decime que se siete If there’s one nation that enjoyed last night’s result as much as Germany, it’s Argentina, and their big sports paper Ole were quick to rub salt in the wounds.

Their headline ‘Brasil, decime que se siete’ referred to the version of Bad Moon Rising being sang at the World Cup by Albiceleste supporters, the first line of which is ‘Brasil, decime que se siente’ (Brazil, tell me how it feels). The ‘siente’ for ‘feels’ has been changed to ‘siete’, meaning ‘seven’, so the clever headlined translates roughly as ‘Brasil, tell me it’s seven’.

Ole didn’t stop there: “All of Brazil is crying, beaten by a brilliant Germany in an unforgettable dance that was 7-1 and could have been bigger. They dreamed of being champions at home but are left with only the wish. A game that will stay in football’s history.

Worse than the Maracanazo? One, two… seven. A nuclear bomb, in a footballing sense. Mineirazo. Brazil surrendering at the feet of Germany: cries, tears, pain”.

Globoesporte: The humiliation of humiliations There was little the Brazilian press could do but accept defeat graciously. Globoesporte drilled home the magnitude of the loss: “In 10, 20, or 50 years from now, Brazilians will say that the national team, way back in 2014, lost a World Cup semifinal against Germany, at home, by seven goals to one. This text is for anyone who was a little boy or maybe just born at the time.

I hope you find it on the internet (or whatever tool you will be using in the future) and try to understand that no words could explain this to the attendees at the Mineirao, or 200 million who watched. This massacre imposed by one of the greatest teams of the time upon a side that completely caved to pressure in the absence of Neymar”.

Marca: The Mineirazo exceeds the Maracanazo Spanish daily Marca made a by now familiar comparison between the loss at the Mineirao and the famous Maracanazo, suggesting yesterday’s result is perhaps even bigger: “Yesterday the Maracanazo became nothing, it was destroyed by Germany in a way no one could imagine. 23,368 days has passed since the 16 July, 1950.  What happened yesterday has no precedents.

Yesterday is the worst Brazilian loss in an official game, a humiliation that will forever leave a mark on a country in which football is religion. As of today, Fred will be the player most marked by the collective debacle and the one who will pay with all the fall out. There will be no pardon.

Not even with the passage of time”. AS: An historic humiliation Fellow Spanish daily AS also drilled home how the result will go down in history, and their dramatic metaphors were particularly severe: “Nelson Rodrigues defines the Maracanazo as ‘the Hiroshima of Brazil’. Every Hiroshima is followed by Nagasaki. Germany done that which seemed impossible. They left the disaster of 1950 as no more than an anecdote.

With quick football based on organisation around the ball, Germany ruthlessly destroyed a team that was really only Brazil in terms of the name on the shirt. The punishment was incredible, in front of an incredulous Mineirao that will go down in the history of Brazilian football as a mausoleum”.

France Football: Germany impose an historic defeat on Brazil Even the French had to acknowledge Germany’s brilliance, with the result making their 1-0 loss to the same side in the quarter-finals look insignificant: “On its own soil, the Selecao was humiliated by Germany on Tuesday in the semifinals of the World Cup. After two semi-finals lost, the Nationalmannschaft qualify for the final for the first time since 2002. It didn’t last 30 minutes.

After trying to force a high energy start, the Selecao quickly showed its limits, and their opponent was swift to exploit them, coolly. Very cool, even”. Is this the biggest shock in World Cup history?
