Germany Slaughters Brazil In World Cup Semifinal



The odds of a 7-1 win in a World Cup Semifinal is about 250-1. A punter in New Zealand is reportedly said to have won $500 from a $2 bet. Another New Zealand punter has a greater reason to celebrate after winning $110,000 from a $40 bet correctly picking the halftime and fulltime scores in three separate matches.

This match goes down in one of the biggest shocking defeats by such a large goal margin since Hungary(9) vs South Korea (0) in the 1954 World Cup. With extremely high expectations and with the home advantage, most Brazilians expected a close match and a possible win over their long term rival. 5 goals were scored over the span of 30 minutes in the first half, leaving Brazil and it’s players in shock.

In the second half, Germany scored again in the 69th and 79th minute. People were quick to express themselves on Twitter.
