It will always be a nightmare for all Brazilians out there every time they would remember their last game against Germany. Germany humiliated Brazil in the semi final of the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil and went on to lift the trophy by defeating Argentina in the final. There are a few players who lived that nightmare and would come into this game with their hearts in their hands because once again both these football giants would tussle for glory. Germany is one of the favourites to lift the summer World Cup and on the other side; we have Brazil, the only team to have played all the World Cup tournaments since 1930. Both these countries dominate the world when it comes to football and as listed by FIFA, Germany is currently ranked 1 team on the list and trailing by 120 points is Brazil on the list, keeping the second position on the FIFA top 10 football teams list.

Germany has been undefeated in their last 22 games but that is going to change when they take on Brazil because it would be payback time for the Brazilians. Brazil couldn’t get over the 7-1 defeat handed to them in last World Cup’s semi final and that too in their home ground. It’s time for the Brazilians to show the world who they are and why they have already won 5 world cups.
