Duarte: Dunga's return is complicated

Brazil rout joins big World Cup shocks

ESPN's Ian Darke and Steve McManaman review Brazil's miserable performance against a superior German side.

Germany's 7-1 defeat of hosts Brazil in their 2014 World Cup semifinal was the latest in a long line of shock results in the tournament's history.

Here are some other matches that upset the odds and shocked the world.

USA 1-0 England, Brazil 1950

Arguably the most humiliating defeat in England's history. The tournament favourites dominated to start with but in the 37th minute the U.S. stunned them by taking the lead through Larry Gaetjens. Walter Winterbottom's side could not hit back and suffered a hugely embarrassing loss which, until Tuesday night, was the most remarkable result ever recorded in Belo Horizonte.

Brazil 1-2 Uruguay, Brazil 1950

The hosts needed just a point in their last match of the final group stage against their neighbours at the newly built Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Alcides Ghiggia's winner secured Uruguay a second world crown and created a spectre -- dubbed the "Maracanazo" -- which hovered over Brazilian football for more than 60 years before being superseded by Tuesday's humbling at the hands of the Germans.

North Korea 1-0 Italy, England 1966

Italy were expected to thump the Asian minnows but, against all odds, the Koreans' defence held firm against the might of the Europeans. The now legendary Pak Doo-ik was on hand to score a scarcely believable winner at Middlesbrough's Ayresome Park.

Scotland 3-2 Netherlands, Argentina 1978

Netherlands' celebrated "Total Football" side were in their prime, brimming with confidence and fully expected to dish out a real lesson to the Scots. However, Archie Gemmill had other ideas and fired a superb brace, and with Kenny Dalglish also popping up to score the Dutch were defeated, although they still went on to make the final.

Cameroon 1-0 Argentina, Italy 1990

Cameroon, reduced to nine men after a double sending-off, produced another strong candidate for the biggest-ever World Cup shock against the reigning champions. In only Cameroon's second appearance in the finals, they stunned the South Americans -- who finished as runners-up to West Germany -- and stole the hearts of neutral supporters when Francois Omam Biyik headed home the winner.

Republic of Ireland 1-0 Italy, USA 1994

Even Ireland's travelling army could surely not have believed their side would defeat the mighty Italy. But Jack Charlton's men did exactly that, thanks to Ray Houghton's brilliant 25-yard strike. The Irish defence kept the Italian strike force at bay as Charlton's men sent their supporters into ecstasy. Italy reached the final, but lost to Brazil on penalties in Pasadena, California.

Ray Houghton fires the shot that gave Ireland a 1-0 win over Italy.
Ray Houghton's stunning long-range strike was one of USA '94's most memorable moments.

France 0-1 Senegal, Japan and South Korea 2002

The world and European champions were left stunned in their opening game of the tournament through a goal from Papa Bouba Diop. France went close and hit the woodwork twice, but the African nation held on for victory. They went on to reach the quarterfinals, while France returned home in shame after the group stage.

Italy 1-2 South Korea, Japan and South Korea 2002

Ahn Jung-hwan, who missed a first-half penalty, was the Korean hero with the dramatic winner three minutes from the end of extra time in this round-of-16 match. In an extraordinary encounter, Seol Ki-hyeon scored in the 88th minute to cancel out Christian Vieri's opener. Italy striker Francesco Totti was also dismissed in extra time.

Spain 0-1 Switzerland, South Africa 2010

Switzerland shocked European champions Spain with a narrow win in the teams' Group H opener in Durban. Gelson Fernandes got the only goal in the 52nd minute, before Spain's Xabi Alonso was denied by the crossbar in the 71st minute. Spain wasted a hatful of other chances, and the Swiss held on.

Spain 1-5 Netherlands, Brazil 2014

Spain had recovered from that Switzerland defeat to win the tournament four years ago, and after Alonso's first-half penalty it seemed business as usual at the start of their title defence. But Robin van Persie's flying header sparked a barnstorming Dutch fightback in which he and Arjen Robben scored twice each, with defender Stefan de Vrij also on target.
