Can you name Brazil’s starting XI after losing 7-1 to Germany at the 2014 World Championships?

Brazil’s 7-1 loss to Germany in the 2014 World Cup semi-final remains one of the most shocking scores of all time – but can you name the starting XI that represented Brazil in the 2014 World Cup semi-finals? of that infamous night in Belo Horizonte?

The 2014 World Cup hosts had experienced an emotional roller coaster as they reached the last four. Brazil needed penalties to overtake Chile in the round of 16 while their quarter-final victory over Colombia was largely due to the systematic foul of James Rodriguez.

Germany had been the better team during the competition, smashing Portugal in the group stage and knocking out France in the quarter-finals, and were perhaps the heavy favorites heading into the clash in Belo Horizonte. But no one could have predicted what would happen next.

Thomas Muller opened the floodgates with a controlled finish and, on the half hour mark, Germany were leading 5-0. Against Brazil. In the semi-finals of the World Cup. In Brazil.

Substitute Andre Schurrle added two more goals against demoralized opponents before Brazil netted the most meaningless consolation goal imaginable just before full time.

It remains simply known as ‘7-1’, but do you remember Brazil’s starting XI from that game? The time from Planet Office to beat is 01:09.
