TORONTO – In the first 30 minutes of play between Germany and Brazil at the World Cup semifinals, Germany scored 5 goals to the shock of many soccer fans betting on the host team to go all the way.
While fans in the stands at the game cried, screamed and generally looked like life was over, many took to Twitter to comment on what they were witnessing.
This is meant to be a World Cup semi-final. Now it's just become a TV event to crack Twitter jokes. I'm going to laugh myself into a coma.—

Some people blamed Brazil’s sloppy play on the fact that star player Neymar is out with an injury for the rest of the World Cup.
this game proves that germany slay and how neymar is pretty much what holds brazil together—

I don't even watch football that much but damn all I know is Neymar is the reason they've been winning and it shows when he's not there—

Brazil: 17 shots, 12 shots on goal, and 1 actual goal: Germany: 14 shots, 12 shots on goal, and 7 actual goals. Real conversions matter! :))—

With Germany’s win Brazil is now eliminated from the 2014 World Cup final. Hopefully this poor kid gets over it.
