7th heaven for #GER! 7 deadly sins for #BRA! https://t.co/wj3DXBTaws #WorldCup #BRAvsGER
No one really cheers.
Strange scenes here!
Oscar scores for Brazil.
88' Oscar misses from a really tight angle.
Beat Neuer but that's because he kicked it away from the goals.
85' I seriously fear for the safety of this Brazil squad.
This is the biggest hammering in footballing history given the context.
Impossible to pick a Man of the Match.
Andre Schurrle since coming on: 2 shots, 2 goals, 91% pass accuracy. Utterly ruthless. #GER pic.twitter.com/3bROgPmjqE— Squawka Football (@Squawka) July 8, 2014

80' Ten minutes to go.
This is the first time any team has scored seven goals in a semi-final.
This is also the first time any team has conceded seven goals in a semi-final.
Nice one Germany.
Andre Schurrle lashes in his second from a tight angle.
Brazil have been demolished!
76' Nasty scenes now. Lots of finger pointing and accusations!
Thomas Muller acting like a baby.
David Luiz did nothing wrong.
Brazil now just playing for the bonus point if they lose by 7 or less.— Graeme Joffe (@Joffersmyboy) July 8, 2014

Ronaldinho, Robinho, Pato, Coutinho, Kaka, Lucas Moura.
But they chose Fred.
Nice going Scolari!
Schurrle taps home.
The crowd boos as Fred departs.
This is a right mess!
68' Slice of cheese for Dante.
Hacked down Kross and the ref gives him a slice!
Cesar with a great interception as Schweinsteiger was set clear on goal!
Almost a sixth!
65' Not much to write about in this second half.
Fred being treated very harshly by his home crowd. Harsh but fair.

They call him everything from diver to Robben.

Surprised he can make a save.
Muller's strike is tipped over the bar.

Neuer has made 4 saves in quick succession.

Neuer makes a double save from point blank range!
Paulinho can't score when a goal was put on a plate for him.
51' Another Neuer save!
My word, their attack is as bad their defence.
Ramires fails to beat the German goalie!
50' Ramires can't find Oscar from 5 metres.
Neuer dives across to punch the ball away from danger.
Germany not handing out any freebies!

HALF-TIME: BRAZIL 0-5 GERMANY
There will be one minute of added time
Germany are comfortably dealing with everything Brazil throw at them, while are always looking dangerous on the counter attack
Brazil are seeing a bit more of the ball at the moment without really doing anything with it. Germany look supremely confident, and understandably so

Germany get forward and Ozil sets up Khedira to shoot in the box. His effort rebounds off Kroos and Brazil clear
Hulk is found by David Luiz's long ball. He cuts the ball back towards Bernard but Neuer is quick to come out and grab it in the centre
