It makes me wonder how the US team would have played against Brazil. The US team gave Germany a tough game in the earlier rounds. If only the US team could've played Brazil instead of Belgium in the round of 16.

One of the biggest losses in sports history

Brazilians love their soccer as we all know. More than any other country loves anything.
- It's a home game.
- They f***** their economy just to host the WC. Jacked up public transportation and gas costs, cut education and health care spending, displaced thousands of Brazilians living in favelas, rushed building much of the infrastructure needed to host it, and ignored the protests of millions of unhappy Brazilians.
- The last time they hosted the WC they lost 1-0 in the final and they've been waiting 64 years to host it again and win on home soil.
- They got DESTROYED.
- It's a legacy-changing loss. Everything, how they play the game, how they coach the game, how they develop their young players, will have to change.

I can't think of any Sports loss that compares to this

A well-deserved humiliation after their disgraceful behavior in the Colombia match. They brought it on themselves.

I did as well. Brazil has such a rich soccer culture. The fans definitely didn't deserve the performance they witness earlier today.

Neymar wouldn't have even mattered with that defense.

Well, it's the worse blowout in the history of Brazillian football though... And they lost 7-1 to a team that tied Ghana 2-2.

Even without Neymar and Silva(whose loss was felt even more than Neymar)--it was a completly embarrasing performance, just a meltdown the likes of which I've never seen from a major international football team recently. They just looked confused out there--the defense was pathetic. I mean they started out with the defense non-existent when Germany got that first easy goal and from there on out it was a massacre.

The game was like watching a litter of puppies try to take on marauding grizzly bears while a family looks on in horror and tears. It was almost awesome in how horrible it was--it was that unreal.

Very unreal. Not just a bad game but a sudden loss of exceptionalism for the team. Real Brazil fans knew this was the weakest national team in the country's recent history but they didn't imagine a loss quite like this. No one did.

There was no mercy shown by the Germans. They humiliated Brazil in their own soil.

That kid was bawling his eyes out and all the Germans could tell him was, "ya, dat is life, no?"

There will be historical changes to Brazils team. Scolari, gone. Kaput. He took out joga bonito and so Brazilians will show him the door.
