German media rave over epic win

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

Following an astonishing night in Belo Horizonte, Germany's media raved about the Nationalmannschaft, who recorded the biggest-ever World Cup semifinal win when they beat Brazil 7-1 on Tuesday.

"7-1! Low XI ecstatic. Into the final," football magazine kicker headlined.

"Unbelievable. Historic. Madness. Germany beats Brazil 7-1 in the World Cup semifinal. In words: seven to one," the paper said in its match report. "What a bizarre football match!"

"In a frenzy to Rio," broadsheet Suddeutche Zeitung headlined. In the player ratings, they praised Man of the Match Toni Kroos, saying: "After setting up the first goal, nothing and no one was the same as before.

"Brazil were no longer Brazil. And Kroos was no longer Kroos. He blended Xavi (from his best days) with Iniesta (from his best days) with Kroos (in his best form). He won balls in defence and hammered them into the danger zone."

"The miracle of Belo Horizonte is legendary already" was Die Welt's take on the match. "Unleashed? Unique? World Cup-winning? Germany beat Brazil with a performance that can't even be measured with historic parameters."

The paper also noted that Miroslav Klose taking the all-time scoring record from Brazil legend Ronaldo -- and surpassing Brazil in the total number of World Cup goals scored -- was "the ultimate humiliation for the hosts."

Germany have now scored 223 World Cup goals, three more than Brazil.

Conservative broadsheet FAZ called the 7-1 "the seventh football wonder" and said Germany had created a "historic, epic work." But it also talked of Luiz Felipe Scolari's "unlimited tactical naivety," saying that had led Brazil to "catastrophe."

"A win for the historic books -- just like bowling," the daily taz headlined. "Brazil wanted to write history and went through the most horrible minutes of football history. The DFB team managed everything and more."

The paper saw the "Brazilian adrenalin junkies" who had been shouting the national anthem before the match turned into "pitiful figures" 30 minutes in.

"This victory is for eternity. Thank you, we love you!" the biggest German tabloid, Bild, raved. "What a wicked football frenzy, this incredible victory against Brazil, the host, the five-time champion. We will tell our kids about it. We are in the final, and can win our fourth World Cup trophy in Rio on Sunday."

Hamburg tabloid, MOPO put a picture of Sami Khedira, Kroos and Klose celebrating one of their goals on the front page and said, "This MOPO is a piece of history. 7:1! Ramba Samba. Germany dances Brazil dizzy."
