The trouble for Brazil is if they think this is just a blip. They don't have the talent they used to have and they need to realise that. Will they though?
Indeed. Their support has got them this far in the face of some pretty poor performances. So many of their players are, basically, average. Certainly, when you look at the great players they've had so regularly in the past, who even gets close to that level? Neymar, maybe. But that's it.
Didn't think it would be 5-0 inside 30 minutes but thought Brazil might get a bit of a tonking.
Neymar was just covering up (a bit) what everyone could see in front of their own eyes.
We are not worthy! German football is how English fans and media think England play. Congratulations. And now it's 5!
Holy Crap! 4-0 to Germany inside 30 minutes???? Thought Brazil were a poor shadow of their famous past but this is ridiculous!
Quite. Fernandinho (I think it was him) was a bit of a disgrace. Kicking Rodriguez into next week all game without a card and the first tackle Rodriguez attempts (Hulk hurdled it) and a yellow card is given  and from the resulting free kick, Luiz scores.As one of our pundits said, "Brazil are winning but losing a lot of fans in doing so".
 I doubt they'd practice anything like that. It's a product of being very good in general I think. As for the 3 suggestions above, I'd go with Cahill's block buster. Technically, very, very difficult. Full volley with the ball coming across his body and he manages to hit back against the grain and hit the target. James' volley vs. Uruguay was pretty impressive, especially as he has a quick peek at the keeper while the ball is in the air, on the way to him, before he smacks...
 Interesting about body shapes in classic U.S. sports cf. soccer (I use that word due to the majority audience here), but they aren't "mine"! I would imagine some of the more talented athletes with a more classic soccer body shape have simply moved into other careers in the past when soccer was amateur and early pro in the U.S. If the pay was that low in the past then you could do a lot of things and earn more while playing soccer for recreation. Maybe in the not so...
Used to have a bit of a thing for Suzi Perry. Used to commentate/be an expert pundit on motorcycle racing and now anchors the BBC's F1:
