in. It is 1-0, Germany lead. Higuain. It is saved by Tim Krul.

:01:19.:01:31.

And then there were four, the World Cup semifinals, first up two sides

:01:32.:01:37.

who have lifted the trophy eight times between them. Hosts and

:01:38.:01:42.

five-time winners Brazil take on Germany, who have three stars above

:01:43.:01:49.

the badge. Our commentator Steve Wilson.

:01:50.:01:56.

Belo Horizonte is not the most beautiful of the venues, lacking the

:01:57.:02:02.

romance of the Maracana, a big bearpit of a ground, but thrilling.

:02:03.:02:08.

The house without their superstar and captain. The last time they

:02:09.:02:16.

started a match without Neymar and Thiago Silva, they lost to the Dutch

:02:17.:02:25.

in the last World Cup. Neymar has started 38 consecutive matches,

:02:26.:02:38.

scoring 27. Dante comes in 40 others to do. Bernard for Neymar. -- comes

:02:39.:02:49.

in for Thiago Silva. Germany and never beaten Brazil in a competitive

:02:50.:02:52.

game. One draw, two defeats. This is Miroslav Klose's 23rd World

:02:53.:03:10.

Cup finals match, on 15 goals, equal with Ronaldo. He becomes the first

:03:11.:03:17.

player ever to play in four World Cup semifinals. The Brazilian

:03:18.:03:27.

players are today wearing face introduced to Neymar. -- wearing

:03:28.:03:39.

this ball caps in tribute to Neymar. Marcelo Silva mood. -- is in the

:03:40.:03:52.

mood. Question marks over Brazil, how they will handle the pressure.

:03:53.:03:58.

Hulk was in there. That is an incredible ball by David Luiz. A

:03:59.:04:05.

German throw, played to Sami Khedira ref. Klose. A good moment for Dante,

:04:06.:04:19.

a lot of pressure. A good take by Neuer. Germany could have played

:04:20.:04:30.

into Muller. Khedira getting away from Fernandinho. Ozil arriving. It

:04:31.:04:52.

can end off Tony Crowes. -- its cannons off Tony Crowes. -- Toni

:04:53.:05:03.

Kroos. They are getting in far too easily. Marcelo leaves a great big

:05:04.:05:19.

space to run into. Hulk is forced away from goal by Philipp Lahm.

:05:20.:05:30.

Marcelo loses it. Miroslav Klose in the middle. First German corner of

:05:31.:05:41.

the game. Khedira are doing well, breaking into that left an channel.

:05:42.:05:48.

Plenty of mistakes in the first ten minutes. A slight nervousness from

:05:49.:05:55.

Brazil trying to mount these attacks from the back. Klose in his usual

:05:56.:06:03.

position, about eight yards from goal. It goes to the back post, it

:06:04.:06:11.

is in, Muller. Thomas Muller from the corner puts Germany and France.

:06:12.:06:24.

-- in front. A ball that ends up at the far post, totally unmarked.

:06:25.:06:30.

Unbelievable. It is almost embarrassing. The World Cup's Golden

:06:31.:06:40.

Boot winner four years ago, Thomas Muller, has fired Germany in front

:06:41.:06:43.

in the 2014 semifinal. Hulk has not had a great World Cup.

:06:44.:07:10.

Germany can break again, Muller down the far side. Cut out by Dante. I

:07:11.:07:27.

think Muller has covered 57 kilometres so far, yet acres of

:07:28.:07:34.

space to run into. Muller, Klose, brilliant save, Klose scores. A

:07:35.:07:45.

historic goal. Miroslav Klose is the all-time World Cup record scorer.

:07:46.:07:52.

Stunning. They are absolutely punishing them, they looked lost,

:07:53.:07:59.

the Brazilians. Klose will not miss that one. Putting him in the record

:08:00.:08:07.

books. That is Klose's range, 6-12 yards. 16 goals in World Cup finals,

:08:08.:08:18.

eclipsing the phenomenon, as Brazilians called him, Ronaldo. They

:08:19.:08:34.

looked stunned. How do Brazil shake up the unshakeable? You look at what

:08:35.:08:42.

he has done in midfield, it is not working. Germany have completed

:08:43.:08:51.

trial of the match in the middle. -- completed trial. It could be

:08:52.:08:56.

embarrassing, it is three, Toni Kroos. Brazil have fallen apart

:08:57.:09:09.

inside 25 minutes. A dizzying 25 minutes from Germany. It is as good

:09:10.:09:18.

a finish as you will see. Asians are space, Marcelo, what a finish that

:09:19.:09:28.

is, goes like an arrow. Yes, it is lucky, but look at the finish at the

:09:29.:09:38.

end of it. The dreams of 200 million Brazilians look like Battersea. It

:09:39.:09:45.

is getting embarrassing, turned square, 4-0 to Germany after 25

:09:46.:09:52.

minutes. Fernandinho courted possession, Brazil are being

:09:53.:09:58.

humiliated, humbled, taken apart by Germany. Their supporters cannot

:09:59.:10:07.

believe what they are seeing. It is as if cash will be -- it is as if

:10:08.:10:18.

without their two star players, the plant has been pulled. Simple

:10:19.:10:32.

finish, embarrassing. -- the plug. The dream, the fantasy is dead,

:10:33.:10:42.

4-0, in 25 minutes. The team raised eyebrows, Willian, Ramires on the

:10:43.:10:54.

bench, high-energy players. Muller with the throw.

:10:55.:11:06.

They might be through again. Khedira. 5-0. 5-0! Absolute

:11:07.:11:24.

humiliation. That one is down to David Luiz, absolutely no discipline

:11:25.:11:30.

going charging out, a great big hole to live through. -- to run through.

:11:31.:11:41.

They have scored four goals in the last six minutes. Truly

:11:42.:11:48.

unbelievable, they are so patient, waiting for the chance, just a tap

:11:49.:11:56.

in. I am afraid the dream has gone, blown to smithereens. Philipp Lahm

:11:57.:12:10.

in all kinds of space. The deflection, Toni Kroos almost

:12:11.:12:17.

completing a first half hat-trick. They are out of position, almost

:12:18.:12:24.

like a testimonial game. Brazil have been absolutely awful.

:12:25.:12:30.

Brazil vulnerable without their captain and superstar, booed off at

:12:31.:12:38.

half-time in Belo Horizonte. They have been utterly outplayed,

:12:39.:12:42.

overwhelmed and humiliated by this Germany side. At half-time Brazil

:12:43.:12:53.

0-5 Germany. Ramires. Marcelo chasing after it.

:12:54.:13:11.

Paulinho. Manuel Neuer getting a little touch on that. The danger is,

:13:12.:13:20.

as Brazil pile forward in search of honour, they could leave themselves

:13:21.:13:44.

open at the back. Cleverly done. He makes his mind up, he gets there.

:13:45.:13:51.

Red and butter for him. -- bread and butter. Ramires can help it onto

:13:52.:14:09.

Oscar. Mesut Ozil can turn away. Great save by Neuer. Oscars should

:14:10.:14:16.

score. He tries to get it with the outside of his foot. Paulinho is

:14:17.:14:28.

onside. Magnificent save by Neuer. Absolutely brilliant save. What

:14:29.:14:38.

about this save? He parries it in front, you think he will hit the

:14:39.:14:44.

back of the net, great reactions. You have to think, Manuel Neuer is

:14:45.:14:49.

thinking, come on, bring it on. Schurrle coming on for Miroslav

:14:50.:14:57.

Klose. Salt in the wound for Brazil that Ronaldo's record has gone

:14:58.:14:59.

tonight. Clever disguise on that. Thomas

:15:00.:15:18.

Muller's shot. Good saved by Julio Cesar. That is a wonderful save.

:15:19.:15:27.

Onto his left foot. Just pushes it over. David Luiz. David Luiz trying

:15:28.:15:44.

to play it through to Luiz Gustavo. One by Bastian Schweinsteiger.

:15:45.:15:46.

Schweinsteiger with the run through the middle. They have got two in the

:15:47.:15:52.

middle. Schweinsteiger, let it go to Schurrle. Julio Cesar did well. Took

:15:53.:15:58.

a leaf out of Thomas Muller's book. The goalkeeper did well. Paulinho

:15:59.:16:08.

for Brazil. It is a good ball to Bernard. He can tee up Marcelo.

:16:09.:16:16.

Mertesacker's header, but the offside flag is up and had Fred got

:16:17.:16:20.

a touch on it it wouldn't have counted. Just straying offside. It

:16:21.:16:33.

is painful. There are many people in this stadium who have never seen

:16:34.:16:38.

Brazil lose at home. Nobody has ever seen them lose like this at home. Do

:16:39.:16:46.

Germany want more? Toni Kroos will want one more, he is on a hat-trick.

:16:47.:16:51.

Philipp Lahm. Three in the middle. Lovely ball to Philipp Lahm. It is

:16:52.:16:57.

square and it is a cap in for six and Schurrle makes it six to

:16:58.:17:05.

Germany. Shambolic defending once more. Pass and move as the calls

:17:06.:17:18.

ring round and it is another tap in. The marking is totally nonexistent.

:17:19.:17:25.

Look at David Luiz, standing on his heels. You have to be marking in the

:17:26.:17:34.

box. That is ridiculous. Marcelo. The left-back has lost it. David

:17:35.:17:42.

Luiz. I think David Luiz is in danger of losing his head. Thomas

:17:43.:17:46.

Muller is very unhappy with the challenge. The referee is on the

:17:47.:17:51.

spot here. But all came when the left-back, Marcelo lost the ball

:17:52.:17:58.

about 15 yards out the penalty area. They are 6-0 down, how many do

:17:59.:18:03.

they want to lose by? David Luiz going over the top of the ball.

:18:04.:18:10.

Handbags there. He is complaining about the way Thomas Muller has gone

:18:11.:18:24.

in. However this -- Howedes. Cut out by David Luiz. It is a lovely

:18:25.:18:34.

reverse ball. Schurrle. Andre Schurrle, it is seven. Stunning

:18:35.:18:43.

finish. Every one of these is just sublime football, great finish.

:18:44.:18:49.

Applause breaks out around the ground, which is good to hear. Look

:18:50.:18:56.

at that for a finish. It is like watching one of the great Brazilian

:18:57.:19:04.

teams from yesteryear. Fantastic finish. Top corner. In this country

:19:05.:19:10.

they know all about good football and the Brazilian fans who are still

:19:11.:19:13.

in this ground, and there are over 50,000 of them, they have just stood

:19:14.:19:19.

and applauded the team that has dismantled their heroes limb from

:19:20.:19:25.

limb. The agony is almost over. Five minutes plus added time for Brazil

:19:26.:19:40.

to endure. David Luiz. Ramires. Manuel Neuer right behind it. Never

:19:41.:19:45.

took his eye off it. Ramires has had a goal since he has been on, should

:19:46.:19:50.

have been on from the start. Comfortable save. Philipp Lahm.

:19:51.:19:59.

Schurrle. David Luiz can see it through to Julio Cesar. Willian.

:20:00.:20:12.

Decent ball. Oscar is onside. Manuel Neuer stands up. And it was Oscar's

:20:13.:20:20.

shot that was out for a German throw. Almost an impossible finish

:20:21.:20:30.

from that angle. It is a toe poke. Germany can break. Julian Draxler.

:20:31.:20:34.

Mesut Ozil down the middle. He is onside and through, this is eight,

:20:35.:20:40.

and he has put it wide. That is the one thing missing from his game.

:20:41.:20:44.

Mesut Ozil, the ruthlessness. Great run through the middle. Just think

:20:45.:20:49.

he is going to become, he is, but he misses the target. Manuel Neuer.

:20:50.:20:56.

About coming, he has retreated. Oscar for Brazil. He gets one. The

:20:57.:21:03.

Germans are furious. And that tells you a lot about them. For once,

:21:04.:21:11.

Manuel Neuer, the sweeper keeper is not there. You expect him to be

:21:12.:21:15.

coming. He starts to come and he goes back and Oscar does the rest.

:21:16.:21:21.

Oscar scores the most pointless of World Cup goals. And that is it.

:21:22.:21:31.

Germany are into the World Cup final. With an incredible victory

:21:32.:21:40.

over the hosts. Brazil thoroughly unforgivable performance. Germany,

:21:41.:21:45.

thoroughly unforgettable performance. It has finished, the

:21:46.:21:51.

most surprising scoreline of a surprising World Cup. Brazil 1-7

:21:52.:21:55.

Germany. We have just witnessed one of the

:21:56.:22:07.

most astonishing victories in football history. This was not one

:22:08.:22:10.

of the game's superpowers beating a small nation, this was Brazil for

:22:11.:22:15.

crying out loud. As all hosting the World Cup for the first time in 64

:22:16.:22:20.

years. -- Brazil hosting the World Cup for the first time in 64 years.

:22:21.:22:24.

Germany the first country to score seven goals in a World Cup final.

:22:25.:22:29.

Spain scored eight through the entire competition last time. Was

:22:30.:22:34.

ill have gone 62 competitive games unbeaten at home before today and

:22:35.:22:39.

since defeat to Peru in 1975 in the copper America, try to put this game

:22:40.:22:47.

into some kind of context. I am distraught, I have been watching

:22:48.:22:51.

football for over 50 years, the high point was the Brazilian side of

:22:52.:22:57.

1970, this is a low point, to come to Brazil and see them capitulate

:22:58.:23:00.

like this, you have to give the Germans tonnes of credit, but it was

:23:01.:23:05.

a woeful performance that could not get any lower than it did. I would

:23:06.:23:11.

be concerned that some of these Brazilian players might never

:23:12.:23:16.

recover from this. The pressure on these guys out here to perform is

:23:17.:23:21.

incredible. One or two will struggle to come back from this. Thiago Silva

:23:22.:23:27.

consoling the Brazilian players. Nice sportsmanship from Scolari.

:23:28.:23:40.

Yes, it is nice to see. I don't think the Germans can believe it

:23:41.:23:44.

themselves what has happened. They scored four goals halfwit to the

:23:45.:23:49.

first have to go 5-0 up against Brazil in the semifinal of the World

:23:50.:23:54.

Cup. These guys have got to stick around. They have got to play at

:23:55.:24:03.

third and fourth play-off game, will the fans, and see them? They have to

:24:04.:24:06.

read the papers, all of the media will be on them and I hope they do

:24:07.:24:12.

not try to find a scapegoat. This was a case of a group of individuals

:24:13.:24:16.

coming up against a very clinical side. Booing all around the stadium.

:24:17.:24:26.

The German reaction to their supporters is in such contrast. I

:24:27.:24:31.

look that Scolari there and it looks like he is in the middle of the

:24:32.:24:36.

huddle, say leave it to me, I will sort it out, I will take the blame.

:24:37.:24:41.

That will be difficult, he will try to protect his players as much as

:24:42.:24:46.

possible because he is a very loyal man. It is going to be difficult for

:24:47.:24:56.

them to take this away. Incredible scenes in the stadium, big-name

:24:57.:25:00.

players like David Luiz. The scoreline was incredible. It is this

:25:01.:25:05.

belief as to what has happened in the last 90 minutes. Nobody could

:25:06.:25:13.

have written the script. Their faces some it up, in tears. One of the

:25:14.:25:21.

worst performances I have ever seen, but I feel sorry for him

:25:22.:25:25.

because you cannot understand what these players are feeling. You have

:25:26.:25:30.

Holland, who battered Spain in the first game and you could never see

:25:31.:25:34.

that being surpassed and you come to this in the semifinal. How these

:25:35.:25:40.

players recover, I don't know. The supporters, we have been here for

:25:41.:25:47.

five weeks. It has just grown and grown, the interest and the

:25:48.:25:50.

enthusiasm and expectancy has grown and all of a sudden, all the

:25:51.:25:54.

supporters, they are totally deflated. I think the Brazilian

:25:55.:26:00.

support has been total throughout the competition. Right from the

:26:01.:26:03.

start, we said it was not a great Brazilian side but every time they

:26:04.:26:06.

have gone on the page, the crowd have given them a left and some

:26:07.:26:10.

purpose and they have been brilliant. When your team has been

:26:11.:26:14.

beaten by the margin that we have just seen, there is not a lot of

:26:15.:26:20.

good news. Let's remind ourselves of the emphatic nature of Germany's

:26:21.:26:21.

victory. It started with, smaller. There is a block on David Luiz which

:26:22.:26:35.

has come from the training ground. If you score it, it is great, if you

:26:36.:26:41.

lose the goal, you would be massively disappointed. It is well

:26:42.:26:50.

worked. The ball has got to come in. Miroslav Klose Bloxham. Poor

:26:51.:26:51.

marking. Very well worked. Miroslav Klose beats Ronaldo's

:26:52.:27:04.

record. When the ball comes into the box, he comes alive. They get lucky

:27:05.:27:11.

and all of a sudden, static defending. The two centre banks do

:27:12.:27:16.

not react. When the ball goes in the net, they are on the edge of the

:27:17.:27:20.

box. When the ball comes into the box, he is a livewire. Cannot

:27:21.:27:25.

believe he did not put it in the first effort! I lost count. This is

:27:26.:27:35.

the-0. Four goals in six minutes. That is important to give the

:27:36.:27:38.

Germans the credit that this juncture. They moved the ball

:27:39.:27:44.

quickly, very effectively. Lots of defenders in there and the fantastic

:27:45.:27:51.

hit. Maybe the goalkeeper. You have to give credit to Toni Kroos. He is

:27:52.:27:56.

putting himself up there as one of the best midfielders in the world.

:27:57.:28:00.

In the top three the way he is playing, dictating games, more

:28:01.:28:05.

touches of the ball. Look at the way the press. Forces the mistake.

:28:06.:28:14.

Clinical finishing. It is a team playing with great confidence. To

:28:15.:28:19.

have one touch and two touch. Passing and moving the ball quickly.

:28:20.:28:32.

Sami Khedira got the fifth. The two centre-backs. He comes running out

:28:33.:28:47.

and then misses the tackle. Easy for them. They looked like a team who

:28:48.:28:55.

are well drilled, who have a philosophy that they have all bought

:28:56.:29:00.

into. You look at the Brazilians and it was the opposite, a group of

:29:01.:29:03.

individuals who look like they have never played with each other. 5-0 at

:29:04.:29:08.

half-time and Schurrle scored a couple to make it seven. You would

:29:09.:29:14.

not think you would say this against a Brazil team. No surprise it came

:29:15.:29:23.

down the Brazilian left hand side. Marcelo, who has escaped criticism,

:29:24.:29:29.

he was as poor as David Luiz was. Lets him into easily. David Luiz

:29:30.:29:33.

standing still, hasn't a clue what is going on around him, Schurrle,

:29:34.:29:39.

good movement. No reaction to anything. Six or seven Brazilian

:29:40.:29:43.

defenders in their and no reaction whatsoever. This is an amazing

:29:44.:29:47.

finish. David Luiz not tracking him. An

:29:48.:30:10.

amazing finish. Score a goal like that in the World Cup, that is what

:30:11.:30:17.

dreams are made of. Some Brazilian sadism, but Juninho's opinion. You

:30:18.:30:31.

know some of these players, how do they recover? It will be difficult,

:30:32.:30:38.

some of them will not be back to where the Brazil shirt. A lot of

:30:39.:30:47.

pressure on them. It is wrong for us now to criticise players. We saw the

:30:48.:30:53.

Germans teaching us how to play football. We have to learn from

:30:54.:31:01.

that. We have to learn from the seven goals we conceded. Germany

:31:02.:31:09.

played the way we like to play, the way we have played. We need now to

:31:10.:31:15.

sit back, see what is wrong with Brazilian football, if something is

:31:16.:31:23.

wrong, not because of these players, it may be in the academies, the way

:31:24.:31:32.

we teach them to play. Change will have to come. What you have just

:31:33.:31:38.

said, Germany came here and talk Brazil a footballing lesson?

:31:39.:31:44.

Exactly, it is what we saw. Pass, move, stray balls, getting control.

:31:45.:31:51.

Without the ball, coming back, getting a shape, organised, going

:31:52.:31:59.

forward as a unit. They taught us to play football. I know you are

:32:00.:32:03.

hurting, thank you very much, Juninho. I like football, I am a fan

:32:04.:32:10.

of German football. I am happy, because football won. Good to see

:32:11.:32:15.

you. They still talk about the time when Brazil lost the World Cup in

:32:16.:32:24.

1950, the Maracanazo, now maybe they will talk about the ghost of men --

:32:25.:32:38.

Minerao. The World Cup final is live on

:32:39.:32:42.

Sunday. Tonight the beautiful game died in Brazil, the Germany are in

:32:43.:32:45.

dreamland. It is in, back post, Germany lead

:32:46.:33:40.

three Muller. Klose, brilliant save, Klose scores: Historic goal. Brazil

:33:41.:33:52.

are being humiliated. Humbled, taken apart. Khedira, 5-0. Absolutely

:33:53.:34:09.

milli Asian. -- humiliation. Schurrle, it is seven.

:34:10.:34:31.

They are contestants hungry for the MasterChef title.

:34:32.:34:32.

This competition is hotting up to be the best Celebrity MasterChef ever!

:34:33.:34:37.
