The Brazil vs Germany football match that took place on 8 July 2014 at the Estádio Mineirão in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, was the first semi-final match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Both Brazil and Germany reached the semifinals with an undefeated record in the competition, with the Brazilians' quarterfinals with Colombia causing them to lose striker Neymar to injury, and defender and captain Thiago Silva to an accumulation of yellow cards. Despite the absences, a close match was expected, given both teams were traditional FIFA World Cup forces, sharing eight tournaments won and having previously met in the 2002 FIFA World Cup Final, where Brazil won 2–0 and earned their fifth title. This match, however, ended in a stunning loss for Brazil; Germany led 5–0 at half time, with four goals scored within six minutes, and subsequently brought the score up to 7–0 in the second half. Brazil scored a goal in the last minute, ending the match 7–1, these images shows the Brazilian fans reaction during the game.
