There were times during Tuesday's German whitewashing that Brazil barely seemed to be present on the pitch at all.

Really, this should be the video that Brazil uses to sustain itself in the coming years. Of course the Germans won 7-1! They started the match before Brazil even showed up! Scoring seven goals? That couldn't possibly have really happened.
