thumbnail Hello,

It proved to be a record-breaking night in Belo Horizonte as the host nation were humiliated by Joachim Low's men

Germany's extraordinary 7-1 humiliation of Brazil in Tuesday's World Cup semi-final saw a number of records broken by both sides. Here, Goal picks over some of the feats from the astonishing fixture in Belo Horizonte...

- The biggest-ever winning margin in a World Cup semi-final. The previous best were Hungary's 6-1 hammering of Sweden in 1938 and West Germany's 6-1 win against Austria in 1954.

- Brazil equalled their biggest-ever margin of defeat. Their previous heaviest loss was 6-0 to Uruguay in the 1920 Copa America.

- Brazil conceded 11 goals at World Cup 2014, equalling the number they shipped in 1938.

- Brazil's first home defeat in a competitive match since 1975 when they lost 3-1 to Peru in the Copa America semi-finals.

- The first time Brazil had ever conceded seven in a World Cup match. They have only conceded more once in any fixture, an 8-4 loss to Yugoslavia in a friendly in 1934.

- Miroslav Klose became the leading scorer in World Cup finals. His goal was his 16th, one more than former Brazil striker Ronaldo.

- Klose also became the first man ever to play in four World Cup semi-finals.

- Klose has been on the winning side 16 times at the World Cup, equalling the record set by former Brazil full-back Cafu.

- Thomas Muller's goal was Germany's 2000th in all matches played. Fritz Becker got their first in 1908.
