Tuesday’s mind-blowing semi-final will forever be remembered as the night when Brazil were humiliated at their home World Cup.

A rampant Germany hit seven goals past football’s most successful nation to record one of the most incredible scorelines the sport has ever seen. The hosts were left completely humbled by their tormenters and the fallout from the result will take years to repair.
