  1. Post update

    A truly extraordinary evening of World Cup football.

    To go back to our house party analogy all those hours ago, Germany not only outstayed their welcome, they absolutely smashed the place up.

    Stay tuned to the BBC Sport site for all of the reaction from Brazil, Germany and beyond.

    We'll see you tomorrow evening for Netherlands v Argentina. We'll settle for six or seven goals in that one...

    Simon Edmonds: Guys, guys, guys: BBC 2 at 12pm, "7 wonders of Brazil"...that's just amazing...

    Brave Front: If Brazil's quarter final had been officiated properly, Neymar would not be injured, and Colombia would have played Germany.

    Tom Castle: Could argue that Brazil's streak of 64 home competitive matches is still alive since they weren't competitive at all.

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "Brazil haven't lost a competitive home game since 1975 and nothing as painful since 1950, when they lost at home in the final of the World Cup to Uruguay. Some of those players that played that day were never allowed to forget that defeat.

    "But this, without doubt, is the biggest humiliation for the Brazilian team ever. Brazilian football is operating absurdly below their potential. The players took the field full of passion but the test of a team is when you go behind. When they did, they then had no faith in what they were doing and that bravado was empty.

    "Germany lost 5-1 at home to England 13 years ago and used that defeat to change, and Brazil will have to copy that."

    EamonnG: Brazil were propelled to the semi's by refs who didn't want to spoil the party v Chile, Colombia, & now they have paid the price! ‏

    Owen Darlington: They say sign of a good team is winning without playing well. Actually it's the sign of a team that is about to get hammered.

    Alex Hough: A result to shake to shake the very foundations of the footballing establishment. Nuneaton Town 1 - 2 Derby County.

    "The post-mortem starts now. It will affect the players deeply. No matter what they do in their careers, they will be remembered for this forever.

    "Some of these players will never be the same again. Somehow they have to bounce back from this. Germany weathered the storm. They had 10 shots on target, and scored seven goals. They are a machine. They are good at what they do."

    "We tried to do what we could, we did our best - but we came up against a great German team. We couldn't react to going behind. Not even the Germans can tell you how this happened - but it's because their skills and you have to respect that.

    "My message for the Brazilian people is this. Please excuse us for this performance. I'm sorry that we weren't able to get to the Final - and we're going to try to win the third place match. We still have something to play for."

    "For the first 10 minutes, Brazil were on the front foot and going for it. But David Luiz lost concentration for the first goal and it then just fell apart.

    "He was so pumped up, there was so much emotion in the players' eyes, but they were chasing around like crazy men.

    "All the talk was about whether they should have played three holding midfield players, but Brazil should have played five defensive midfield players."

    "There is a danger Germany will not get the credit they deserve. This is one of the best World Cup wins ever. They had a horrendous draw at the start and a horrendous group to get out of, but have got to the final the hard way and done it in style.

    "Brazilian crowds have responded to the quality football played by other teams and are seeing the intensity of the game. It is three or four classes above the domestic league they are used to and Brazil have suffered from the complacency that has come from their previous successes.

    "The medicine for Brazilian football has been very cruel, but very necessary."

    "Germans played the way we liked to play so we need to sit back, see what is wrong with Brazilian football. Especially in the academies, the way we teach them to play. A lot of change will need to come."

I feel desperately sorry for them but it might be cruel but necessary.

    "I don't think the Germans can believe what they have just done. Everything is incredible. It is just disbelief what has happened. Nobody could have summed this up.

    Brazil 0-5 Germany

    Where's the defence?!

    Germany attack down their left and when the cross comes over Thomas Muller is all alone, in oceans of space. He would surely bag a sixth but Julio Cesar comes way out of his goal to sweep away.
