Historic impact of Germany's win

Joachim Low's side obliterated Brazil's defence in less than thirty minutes on Tuesday night.

Germany's remarkable opening half-hour gave them a 5-0 lead against Brazil and made history in a number of ways -- as did Brazil's defeat. A look at the top facts from Tuesday's 7-1 semifinal:

High-flying Germany

• By scoring Germany's second goal, Miroslav Klose became the most prolific goal scorer in World Cup history. Klose now has 16 World Cup goals in his career, breaking a tie with Brazil's Ronaldo.

• Germany scored five goals in the first 29 minutes, the fastest any team has scored five goals in any game in World Cup history. Yugoslavia scored five in 30 minutes against Zaire in 1974.

• Germany are the first team to score five goals in the first half of any World Cup game since Poland against Haiti in 1974 (Yugoslavia scored six against Zaire in the first half one day earlier), and the first in a knockout-stage game since Austria beat Switzerland in 1954.

• Germany's seven goals broke a record for most scored in a semifinal, previously at six, held by Uruguay and Argentina in 1930, and West Germany in 1954. No one had even scored five in a semi since Brazil beat France 5-2 in 1958. 

• The six-goal margin of victory also broke the record of five in World Cup semifinals.

• Germany are now the all-time top scoring team in World Cup history with 223 goals. They passed Brazil at 220 in the first half.

• Germany have taken a 5-0 lead three previous times in the World Cup -- against Saudi Arabia in 2002 (8-0 final), Mexico in 1978 (6-0) and Switzerland in 1966 (5-0).

• Germany reached the World Cup final for the eighth time, more times than any other country.

Thomas Muller is the 13th player to score 10 career World Cup goals, and the second player to score five goals at consecutive World Cups after Klose in 2002 and 2006.

Miroslav Klose and Germany flew out to a 5-0 lead in the first half against Brazil en route to a 7-1 win.

Grounded Brazil

• Brazil's six-goal defeat equals their worst loss in team history -- 6-0 to Uruguay in the 1920 Copa America.

• Brazil had not allowed five goals in an entire World Cup since 1998. They allowed four in five matches in 2010, two in five matches in 2006, and four in seven matches in 2002.

• Brazil had never before trailed by four goals in any World Cup match. That's 102 previous matches.

• Brazil have allowed five goals in official games just eight times -- six in 1940 or earlier, and twice in 1963. Six goals? Not since 1940. Seven? Not since an 8-4 friendly defeat to Yugoslavia in 1934.

• The previous worst defeats for a host nation at a World Cup were by three goals -- South Africa's 3-0 loss to Uruguay in 2010, Mexico's 4-1 loss to Italy in 1970 and Sweden's 5-2 loss to Brazil in the 1958 final.

• Brazil lost at home in a competitive match for the first time since the 1975 Copa America to Peru -- a period of 63 games.

• The last time Brazil lost a World Cup match at home was the 1950 final, which caused the team to change its kit.
