Et was more than a victory. It was a historic game that will flow into the DNA of the German record champions. An I-remember-where-I-was-event for a great many people worldwide. As in the epoch-making 7-1 of the German national team against hosts Brazil in the semifinals of the 2014 World Cup. Bayern also played like crazy. The runaway victory in Lisbon also had enormous impact. A result as a revelation. Six years after the triumph of Belo Horizonte, there is again talk of a victory of the century.
“7: 1” has become a metaphor for a devastating defeat in Brazilian usage. “Goal for Germany” is shouted when someone has an accident.
Thomas Müller was also there back then.
