  2. Will these Brazil players recover from this?

    FT: Brazil 1-7 Germany (SEVEN)

    Former England captain Alan Shearer: "I worry that some of these players will ever recover from this. One or two may struggle to come back from this. Luiz Felipe Scolari looked like he was saying leave it to me, I'll take the blame but that will be difficult.

    He can try and protect his players but it will be hard to take the heat off them. Germany were ruthless, clinical, right form the very first minute. They didn't give them any space, their one touch two touch passing was great to watch. You've got to go out there and show what you are made of and they did that.

  4. 'Hard to watch'

    FT: Brazil 1-7 Germany (SEVEN)

    Former Scotland defender Alan Hansen: "I am totally distraught. I have been watching football for 50 years, this is a low one to see Brazil capitulate in the manner they did. It was a woeful, woeful performance. I don't think the Germans can believe it themselves.

    "He gave one of the worst performances I've ever seen but I still feel sorry for David Luiz."

  5. 'Germany taught us how to play'

    FT: Brazil 1-7 Germany (SEVEN)


    Former Middlesbrough and Brazil midfielder

    It will be difficult to recover, some of them won't be back in a Brazilian shirt again. Germany taught us how to play football. Germany played the way we like to play. We have to see what's wrong with Brazilian football.

    David Luiz
  6. 'This was Brazil for crying out loud'

    FT: Brazil 1-7 Germany (SEVEN)

    Former England captain Gary Lineker: "We have just witnessed one of the truly astonishing victories in football history. This was Brazil for crying out loud. Germany's elation is matched by Brazil's desolation. Brazil had gone 62 competitive games unbeaten at home since defeat to Peru in 1975."

  7. 'Biggest humiliation'

    FT: Brazil 1-7 Germany (SEVEN)

    Tim Vickery

    BBC Sport South American football expert

    This is the biggest humiliation in the history of Brazilian football. I feel desperately sorry for these players. This medicine may be cruel but it may be necessary. They need to regroup.

    It's all over...and the tears are flowing.

    What a truly extraordinary game.

  9. 'Germany are livid'

    The Germans are livid they've let one in. That tells you a lot about them. Oscar scores the most pointless of World Cup goals.

  11. GOAL - Brazil 1-7 Germany (SEVEN)


    Consolation for Brazil!

    It's a soft one too as Oscargets in through the middle, sidesteps the last defender and buries the shot.

    The most pointless World Cup goal ever?

  12. Post update

    Brazil 0-7 Germany (SEVEN)

    Mesut Ozil is clean through. This is for EIGHT...he rolls it wide.

  13. Post update

    Brazil 0-7 Germany (SEVEN)

    You can bet there will be huge consequences on the back of this result. The post-mortems have already started in Brazil. Will Luiz Felipe Scolari still be in a job tonight?

  14. 'It doesn't get more humiliating'

    Brazil 0-7 Germany (SEVEN)

    Steve Wilson

    Match of the Day commentator

    I don't think it gets much more humiliating than your own fans giving the oles to every pass the opposition make.

    Gallows humour from the Brazil fans that have remained as 'ole, ole, ole' ring out during a passage of German possession.

    Martin Keown

    Former England defender in Belo Horizonte

    Stunning finish! Every one of these is sublime football. It's a great finish. The Brazilians have had enough. The Germany fans are loving it, they can't believe it.

  19. GOAL - Brazil 0-7 Germany

    Andre Schurrle

    Stop the game now! Brazil are down, out and utterly humiliated!

    Applause rings out around the Estadio Mineirao as they just have to accept a wonderful goal from Andre Schurrle.

    It comes from a quick throw-in, Thomas Muller flicks the ball in form the left to find Schurrle, and he cracks a rising shot in at the near post, the ball kissing the underside of the crossbar and in.

  20. Post update

    Brazil 0-6 Germany

    This is an ugly performance from the nation of the beautiful game.

    There's another 15 minutes or so left but Brazil are so bad that you wouldn't rule out Germany scoring another one or two.

    The Germans have just made another change. Julian Draxler is on for Sami Khedira.
