The Ultimate Showdown: The FIFA World Cup Final between Brazil and Germany


The FIFA World Cup is one of the most prestigious sports tournament worldwide, and it's a dream come true for football fans from all over the world. The tournament has been the stage of some exciting matches, but the final match is the most anticipated one. In 2014, the final match was between Brazil and Germany, two of the most successful teams in the history of the competition.

The Journey to the Final

Every four years, teams from all over the world compete in the FIFA World Cup to gain the ultimate glory. In 2014, the journey to the final wasn't easy for both teams. Brazil, the host nation, had to overcome their arch-rivals and neighbors, Argentina in the semi-finals, while Germany defeated the four-time champions, France.

However, the journey to the final was costly for Brazil, as their star player Neymar was ruled out for the remainder of the tournament due to an injury, and their captain Thiago Silva was also out due to a suspension.

The Final Match

The 2014 FIFA World Cup final was held at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on July 13, 2014. Despite Brazil's home advantage, the match wasn't in their favor, as Germany made a dominating start from the very beginning.

The Germans opened the score in the 11th minute, with a fantastic strike from Thomas Muller. Miroslav Klose doubled the lead in the 23rd minute, becoming the all-time leading scorer in World Cup history.

On the other hand, the Brazilians couldn't find their foothold in the game, and the Germans added three more goals in the second half, two from Toni Kroos and one from Andre Schurrle.

Though Oscar scored a late goal for Brazil, it was too little too late, and the final whistle marked a historic 7-1 victory for Germany, the largest margin of victory in a World Cup semi-final.

The Aftermath

The final match was an unforgettable moment in the history of football. It was the first time that Brazil had conceded more than five goals in a World Cup match. The loss was a significant heartbreak for Brazilian fans all over the world, and it's considered as the turning point for Brazilian football.

In the end, the 2014 FIFA World Cup was Germany's fourth World Cup title, and they became the first European team to win the tournament in South America.


The FIFA World Cup has provided us with some fantastic moments, and the final between Brazil and Germany in 2014 was undoubtedly one of them. Though the match ended with a huge loss for the host nation, it was an excellent show of sportsmanship from both sides. We can only hope that the 2022 FIFA World Cup, set to be held in Qatar, will provide us with equally exciting matches.
