Today I have witnessed history made at the World Cup semifinals
Many of you might know that I am big football (soccer) fan, and that I had been looking forward to this World Cup for the last four months or so I even have shared articles like the one on this link .
For the most part I have enjoyed watching the 60 matches played so far. But today I watched the best match I have seen in 20+ years. On a day like this it is easy to understand why Football is the most popular sport in the world and why fans are so passionate about it.
Brazil the favorite to win the Title not only lost in their own turf, but suffered the worst humiliation in their World Cup history on their 1 - 7 defeat against Germany .
The european team has made history today, not only for they way the played today scoring five goals in the first 28 minutes, showing class and lots of talent, but also because their striker Miroslav Klose set a new record of goals scored by a single player in the World Cup with 16, surpassing brazilian's legend Ronaldo .
Brazil has suffered one more time a painful defeat in their own country, like the one in 1950 against Uruguay in what is known as Maracanazo , in reference to the Maracana Stadium, the venue where the match was held. Today's defeat could be called Mineirazo.
Germany has moved on to the Final and now will wait to know what team they will be playing against on Sunday July 13th, Argentina or Netherlands .
What I game I witnessed today! I will never forget those two hours.
