    Brazil really were Lahms to the slaughter.....:rolleyes:

    On a more serious note, I think if Robben stays on his feet tonight, Holland have the ability to destroy Argentina in a similar fashion to how they dealt with Spain.

    As for last night's result, it's been on the cards for Brazil.
    Somewhere on the thread for the opening game, there is a comment by me about their full-backs being a high weakness and that a decent team will take advantage. Point proven!!

    Lot of reputations shredded, Marcello equally as bad as Luiz, worst of all was possession stats, that myth was buried last night BC.

    Dear English FA.
    14 years ago, Germany and England came 4th and 3rd respectively and exited the Euros.
    After this, both yourselves and the German FA promised changes to get the National team back where it belonged.

    1 of these FAs did an amazing job. Identified what needed to happen and got on with it.
    The other had more holes in its plan than a Brazilian defence and as much power as a Brazilian front line.

    Today we are talking about certain Brazilian players never playing again for the shirt, a nation embarrassed and another team, ruthlessly efficient, playing as a team, potential World Cup winners (4time semi finalists in a row).

    14 years... The English FA have failed and like the Brazilian national team, should hang their heads in shame at how far other nations have come in the same time.

    That is all.

    How so EA ? Germany had more possession than Brazil. And would have had even more if they hadn't been 5-0 up in 20 minutes and able to relax somewhat.

    What was shredded last night was my £50 pre-tournament bet of a Brazil/Argentina final at 9/1. £500 pissed up the wall by Luiz and his bunch of blubbing wankers.

    That was a Tottenham Hotspur style bottlejob special.
    Pele, jairzinho, Ronaldo, Romaro, Leandro Damiao, your boys took one hell of a beating,
    I was at home watching and I called the police, 11 people got murdered out there on the pitch yesterday.
    If I was the coach or a player in the Brazil side, I'd leave Brazil immediately and never show my face again.

    Still shocked in all honesty but as so many others have said I could also see it coming.
    Funny though, apart from the first game I felt that ze Germans looked distinctly average, saying that though they showed how to despatch a woeful team who had somehow got to the semi final...
    I think even England could have beaten Brazil last night!

    Great article here on the subject. From 2010, but still as relevant.

    I thought Brazil got off lightly.

    Seriously though I had 4-0.........as a base line looking a the Brazil setup.

    Was hoping for a good 10-0 destruction. The '0' is what was more damning if you ask me... absolutely no reply whatsoever from a national team built on it's attacking flamboyancy. No wonder Neuer was pissed off at that consolation goal.

    An aside, how come all the images of crying/shocked brazilians were of women? Were they too embarrassed to show grown men blubbing and tearing up chairs?
