    This is a historic beatdown.

    This will surely not be forgotten by anyone currently alive in both Germany and Brazil!

    Brazil hasn't looked particularly fantastic all tournament even with Silva and Neymar, but today they have completely capitulated under the pressure and after the first German goal.

    We should also mention that this version of Germany is much better than anything we've seen so far.

    Certainly, but it was easy to be fantastic against a defence like that… Germany is now a favourite to win the cup, but I wouldn't write off Argentina or Netherlands just yet.

    Of course not. "The matches have to be played", but with that performance, they're the favorites.

    That was insane. That period after Klose's second goal when Brazil just forgot there should be someone defending the goalpost?

    I was visiting my sister and no one wanted to watch so I followed on Twitter. Beatdown doesn't begin to describe what was happening. The US lost 1-0 to Germany. I guess our team was better than Brazil this year.

    Is it still calm in Brazil? A lot of people were expecting riots if Brazil didn't win the cup. Some idiot started circulating false pictures of rioting.

    Well, I guess the Brazilians didn't pay enough for the win.

    U.S. Program Can Take Heart in Germany’s Triumph
    JULY 9, 2014 By GEORGE VECSEY

    (...) For the growing swarm of American soccer fans, there are implications to this lambasting. On one level, this was one of those sporting events when everything went right for one team and everything went wrong for another — comparable to the 73-0 victory by the Chicago Bears over Washington in the National Football League championship in 1940.

    (...)

    There is a direct line from the development system of the German federation, the D.F.B., to the celebrity coach, Jurgen Klinsmann, currently dashing up and down the sideline for the United States, smiling at opponents, exhorting his own players.

    Germany rarely needs a renewal, not with three World Cups won (as West Germany) and four other times a finalist. That does not mean Germany will automatically win the final Sunday in Rio de Janeiro. It merely means Germany is just about always there.

    The most apt words ever spoken about the German team were uttered by Gary Lineker, the English captain, after a shootout loss to West Germany in the 1990 semifinal:

    “Football is a simple game; 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.”

    (...)

    “Germany loses the final — and they double down on their development plan,” Sunil Gulati, the president of the U.S. Soccer Federation, recalled in a telephone interview from Brazil on Wednesday. He is impressed with Germany’s continuing development system.

    “They have academies funded in part by the Bundesliga,” he said, referring to the wealthy German professional system.

    (...)

    Now that Spain has apparently fallen apart from athletic old age, Germany surges, taking its core from the D.F.B. program. The Bundesliga is challenging the Spanish, English and Italian leagues as the best in the world, using imports from Africa and Latin America and Europe, but good German players do not rust away at home.

    (...)

    The United States, with its own federation, its own development plans, its own Major League Soccer, is doing fine, and it has maintained its longtime admiration of German soccer, Gulati noted. With the D.F.B. plan producing at full tilt, not everybody can make the German team. In the meantime, Klinsmann has a large supply of phone numbers and email addresses and passport statuses of German players with legitimate ties to the United States. And he has four more years on his contract.
