In conceding five in the first half, Brazil have joined a select club of just two other nations to be down by that score in a World Cup match, becoming the first team in 40 years do so.
The other two teams?
Haiti and Zaire.
In a free-scoring World Cup 1974, Yugoslavia beat Zaire 9-0 and scored five past them within 30 minutes.
That was a World Cup record for the most amount of goals in such a short space of time, until Germany fired five past Brazil in 29 minutes in Belo Horizonte, with four of those coming in a devastating six-minute spell.
A day later on 19 June, Poland faced fellow minnows Haiti and also managed to score five in the first 45minutes, eventually winning 7-0.
Of course, both of those matches were in the group stages and not in a semi-final played on home soil.
