FIFA 2014 Brazil: Germany 1 abominable refereeing 0. 53155.jpeg

Germany, from beginning (4-0 against Portugal) to end (semi-final 7-1 against Brazil, 1-0 against Argentina in the final). In this document we present all the games from the group phase to the final. Thank you Brazil for a wonderful FIFA 2014.

  

Germany 0 Argentina 0

Extra time: 1-0

Götze 113

  

Germany

Neuer,  Lahm, Höwedes, Schweinsteiger, Boateng, Hummels, Kramer (Schürrle), Kroos, Klose (Götze), Müller, Özil (Mertesacker)

Coach: Alejandro SABELLA

  

Some serious issues once again with the refereeing but Germany assumed its responsibility in carrying the game to Argentina and Argentina had a seven-man defence in place every time Germany swept forward. In the end, not even the abominable refereeing could give Argentina the trophy and Germany is a just winner.

  

Third Place

 

Brazil throws away third place

A penalty for Brazil was not given in the second half, and an excellent Dutch goal made the scoreline ridiculous right at the end of the match. Brazil's crime? Not to score, but no way the Netherlands was three goals better than Brazil, as the statistics show.

  

  

  

Brazil 0 Netherlands 3

               Van Persie 3 (pen)

               Blind 16

               Wijnaldum 90

 

First half: A dubious penalty, a stupid pass by David Luiz (no wonder Mourinho cannot stand having him in his teams) and Brazil was losing 2-0 at the interval. A penalty for Brazil was not given in the second half, and an excellent Dutch goal made the scoreline ridiculous right at the end of the match. Brazil's crime? Not to score, but no way the Netherlands was three goals better than Brazil, as the statistics show.

Brazil 1 Germany 7

  Müller (11'), Klose (23'), Kroos (24', 26'), Khedira (29') Schürrle (69', 79')

Oscar, 90

 

A nightmare fist half for Brazil... more exactly a six-minute spell of Hell when four goals were scored by an organized Germany against a disorganized Brazil.

 

The opening phase of the game heightened the expectations of the crowd in Belo Horizonte, Brazil gaining a corner in the first minute, Marcelo shot wide on 3'. After 4 minutes, Germany took control. By 8', there was a dangerous shot on goal and the scoreline says the rest.

 

In the second half, Brazil had strung together three decent chances by minute 52, and on another day could have scored but Germany gradually began controlling the game. Two more goals ensued against a Brazil that was growing more and more (what would have happened if the game had started at 46'?) until Oscar scored Brazil's goal of honour right at the end of the game.

 

Conclusion: Brazil was not 6 goals worse than Germany but at crucial moments of the game, the Germans were playing on another level. Brazil has a respectable third place to play for, Germany awaits the next victim in the final. Spain sonceded five goals against the Netherlands, Portugal conceded four goals against Germany, Brazil was on the day just another victim.

 

Not a disgrace for Brazilian football, not a disgrace for the career of Scolari, just one of those afternoons. Tomorrow, Brazil could win the game 2-1.
