The first semi-final of 2014 world cup was very unusual no matter which team you were supporting. Of course, you guys know that I was rooting for Brazil and it was a huge disappointment.
Me and AS made sure our alarms were set well before we went to sleep last night. Therefore, at 6:00 am this morning, even though it was so cold, we managed to crawl out of bed and went to our lounge to watch one of the most anticipated games of this World Cup.
But to my disappointment and AS’s happiness the goal started to rain down at 11 minutes, 23 minutes,24 minutes, 26 minutes and 29 minutes. I was confused for a while wether the goals were repeat telecast or actual goals.
I could only imagine how happy all the Germany supporters must have been by that time. It was as if the game was over in the first 30 minutes and the poor Brazilian supports who were heartbroken. Even Christ the Redeemer statue must have been crying.
Even though I was supporting Brazil, I have to say that there was not a great teamwork in Brazilian team during the first half. By the time they seemed to get their act together in the second half, it was too late to recover.
Final score, Germany 7, Brazil 1, the only goal that Brazilian scored for the whole game was from Oscar at 90 minutes.
So, Germany has advanced to the final of the World Cup by thumping win over Brazil on their own turf. Toni Kroos and Andre Schuerrle each scored twice, with Miroslav Klose, Thomas Mueller and Sami Khedira adding their dose of pain for the home fans.
Now I am scared to watch the game tomorrow as I know Netherland is a good team and played well this tournament. I am still supporting Argentina and, of course, hope they will go to the final so I can enjoy the final.
Who were you supporting today and who are you planning to support tomorrow? Have your say about the World Cup 2014 games.
