Brazil celebrate Germany's humiliation at the hands of Spain

Esporte Interativo celebrated Spain's 6-0 victory over Germany, getting their 'revenge' on social media after the misery of 2014.


July 8, 2014. Brazil and Germany meet in the semi-finals of the World Cup. The Canarinho, without Neymar, are playing at home against one of the favourites to win the World Cup.

What was predicted to be an evenly contested affair, turned into a night that still haunts millions in the football-mad nation. From the Maracanazo against Uruguay to the Mineirazo against Germany. Inside the opening 30 minutes, Brazil were trailing by five. The end result was a 7-1 demolition to Germany, in Brazil's back garden, on the biggest stage in world football. Complete and utter humiliation. Müller, Klose, Khedira, Kroos twice and Schürrle twice broke the country's heart. Óscar scored at the death, but Brazil had been well and truly killed off.

Ever since that dark night in Brazil, they have been waiting for Germany with enthusiasm, and Spain's defeat was a perfect excuse to rejoice at the fall of one of their great rivals. La Roja took no prisoners, inspired by Manchester City wonderkid Ferran Torres, which may culminate in the end of an era for Joachim Löw. Their worst defeat in more than half a century, in Brazil, they roared after each goal scored in an empty Cartuja stadium in Seville.

Brazilian network Esporte Interativo filled all the characters allowed in a tweet when Spain got their sixth of the night. They had the broadcasting rights of the game, and celebrated the fall of Germany in Andalusia. For a day, the Canarinho left their yellow jerseys to one side and enjoyed Lucho's La Roja.
