Brazil vs Germany World Cup 2014: 45 minutes that destroyed Brazil's dream of winning the World Cup on home soil
Germans devastate hosts in first-half mauling
Conceding an early goal is never a good thing, but that's exactly what Brazil did against Germany.
And then they fell apart.
Thomas Muller got the German party started when he was left unmarked to bundle in a Toni Kroos corner after 11 minutes.
But it was Miroslav Klose's goal after 23 minutes that opened the flood gates. Some fine passing ended with the striker overtaking Ronaldo as the leading all-time goalscorer.
Kroos made it 3-0 just a minute later, rifling it in just inside the box.
Kroos then scored again on 26 minutes after a one-two with Khedira to make it 4-0.
On 29 minutes Sami Khedira made it 5-0 after a lovely pull-back by Mesut Ozil.
Muller (11 minutes) Klose (23 minutes) Kroos (24 minutes) Kroos (26 minutes) Khedira (29 minutes)
