Germany destroy Brazil in World Cup semi-final

Posted: 8 July 2014 Time: 23:56

Germany eased into the World Cup Final by humiliating hosts Brazil 7-1, with Miroslav Klose getting amongst the goals to become the most prolific scorer in the tournament's history.

Die Mannschaft ran riot via braces from Man of the Match Toni Kroos and Andre Schurrle, and strikes from Thomas Muller, Sami Khedira and Poland-born Klose, who netted a record 16th goal at the showpiece - going one better than retired Brazilian legend Ronaldo.

Oscar pulled one back in stoppage time as the Samba Boys - who previously hadn't lost a competitive game at home since 1975 - narrowly avoided surpassing their heaviest ever defeat, a 6-0 loss at the hands of Uruguay in 1920.  

READ: All the action as it happened

Germany will face either Argentina or Netherlands in the event decider in Rio on Sunday, with the latter pair meeting in Sao Paulo on Wednesday. 

Joachim Low's men started the contest at Estadio Mineirao brightly, as an unmarked Muller tapped in a Kroos corner 11 minutes in for his fifth goal of the tournament, the same tally he achieved at South Africa 2010.

The Europeans then effectively killed the tie by finding the net four times in a seven-minute period before the half-hour mark. Klose, Kroos (2) and Khedira did the damage to give their side a sensational 5-0 lead at the interval.

The second stanza was a closer affair, as Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was forced to make a number of saves to deny efforts from Oscar and Paulinho. However, substitute Schurrle, on for Klose, added a sixth goal with a calm finish in the area in the 69th minute.

Schurrle completed his double 10 minutes later with a thunderous drive on the angle as the ball flew in off the underside of the bar. 

A deflated Brazil managed to pull one back at the death, as Oscar beat Neuer from close range moments after Mesut Ozil wasted a one-on-one opportunity at the other end.
