Yesterdays FIFA 2014 world cup semifinal between Germany and Brazil was perhaps one of the hottest topics of conversation and twitter activity till now.
But really: 7-1! Perhaps other third world countries could have performed better than Brazil. So you take out Neymar from the squad and what you get is a team that could be thrashed down to the ground.
But German players were pretty humble enough to offer consolation to their opponents and showed true sportsmanship. Some of the hottest topics of conversation in the internet world about previous match were:
How could Brazil concede 5 goals within first half itself? This is really embarrassing. Scenes of tears across every Brazilian supporter were evident even before half time.
And then how could Brazil manage to concede a score such as 7-1? For god’s sake they were the host nation! In semis teams try to figure a way to avoid conceding goals and become more defensive. Many times counter attack is the most preferred strategy. Clearly Germany didn’t think so and went out full aggressive on the pitch.
To give an example, the 5-0 score by Sami Khedira managed that chart-topping 580,166 tweets per second, while the 4-0 and 3-0 goals followed by a few thousand fewer tweets per second each. Brazil’s routing garnered 35.6 million tweets during the game itself.
