Commenters who employ what we deem extreme vulgarity in a comment — “s***,” “f***,” “a*******,” or one of their many variants — will be banned without further notice. But Brazil will be missing their two best players — Thiago Silva in defense and Neymar in attack. Germany defeated Argentina 1–0 in extra time, with the only goal being scored by Mario Götze, who collected André Schürrle's cross from the left on his chest before volleying a high left-footed shot into the net. There are two options. By playing three rugged midfielders, Brazil might well be able to limit Germany’s passing game and prevent Khedira and Schweinsteigger from running the show. At this point, the big boys are playing for keeps, and they are taking no prisoners. The upshot of the ugliness, though, is a semifinal round that features three giants of international footbal plus the Dutch, who have frequently made it this far in the past 40 years too. Brazil 1-7 Germany: Humiliation for hosts Brazil suffered a complete capitulation as the World Cup hosts were humiliated 7-1 by Germany in their semifinal in Belo Horizonte.
The first two are outstanding players who have had their moments in this tournament, though not enough of them. Inscription on the Liberty Bell. Chuck Schumer: Dems will deny GOP a quorum to advance Barrett. Has any current athlete or coach died from the coronavirus. Intuitively, one wants to say that the loss of Brazil’s two stars has a greater impact than Silver estimates.
As I recounted here, Luis Gustavo and Paulinho provided all the central midfield support Brazil needed in that match.
Tomorrow, it’s Brazil and Germany. Only Colombia had anything much to offer by the end. Brazil could keep its 4-2-3-1 formation.
In this scenario, the four attackers would be Oscar, Hulk, Willian, and Fred (or maybe Jo).
Though nominally playing with three up front, Klose frequently paired with Muller in a front two, with Ozil dropping into midfield.
But the analysis through which he reached his conclusion seems persuasive, especially as to Neymar. The former is suspended for the Germany match; the latter is out of the World Cup due to injury. He sees the two teams as essentially even on talent now, but with Brazil benefiting big time from the home nation advantage. This created two advantages.

Second, Germany could better implement its short passing game which, as I have noted, is similar to Spain’s “tiki taka.” (Spain too often drops a nominal winger/forward, say Iniesta or Fabregas, into midfield).
All three of the big boys in the semifinals — Brazil, Germany, and Argentina — won their quarterfinals match by scoring early and then grinding the life out of the opposition — Colombia, France, and Belgium. Willian hasn’t received much playing time here, but showed plenty of ability for Chelsea. The case for sticking with the 4-2-3-1 is the Confederations Cup Final of last year.
Any neutral soccer fan would have gladly taken this lineup when the tournament began. But the teams are playing for keeps now, so I don’t think you can trust anything a manager says before a match. But the excellent analyst Nate Silver gives Brazil a 65 percent chance of prevailing — down from 73 percent before Thiago Silva and Neymar were ruled out. In any event, tomorrow’s match shapes up as a pragmatic, tactical battle — probably low on jogo bonito romance, but fascinating nonetheless, and with the distinct possibility of producing high drama. Scolari has been staying that he doesn’t plan to change his tactics against Germany. The second option is to replace Neymar with a pure central midfielder and switch to a 4-3-3. They made Spain’s Busquets and Xavi look lightweight. Both decisions proved to be big mistakes.
First, France’s all action midfield of Cabaye, Matuidi, and Pogba was frequently outnumbered by Germany’s 4-4-2 (plus Lahm pushing up from right back). Copyright © 2020 by Power Line and respective authors.
The Brazil versus Germany (German: Fußball-WM-Halbfinale Brasilien – Deutschland 2014; Portuguese: Semifinal da Copa do Mundo de 2014 – Brasil vs. Alemanha) association football match that took place on 8 July 2014 at the Estádio Mineirão in Belo Horizonte was the first of two semi-final matches of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Without these two, Brazil has no player that I rate as in the top three in the world at his position. UDPATE: Germany 7, Brazil 1. What makes the match so difficult for me to predict is that not only do we not know who will replace Thiago Silva and Neymar, we don’t even know what formation Brazil will use. Winston Churchill, “Proclaim Liberty throughout All the land unto All the Inhabitants Thereof.” And they have the home nation advantage, which is probably substantial.
UDPATE: Germany 7, Brazil 1. The 2014 FIFA World Cup Final was a football match that took place on 13 July 2014 at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to determine the 2014 FIFA World Cup champion. The case for switching to a 4-3-3 is that (1) without Thiago Silva in the back four, Brazil needs extra protection from the midfield and (2) deploying three midfielders could counter Germany’s tactics, as displayed in their 1-0 victory over France. Germany had all the time and the space in the world, and knew what to do with it. Germany has three such players in my view — Neuer in goal, Hummels at center back, and Muller at forward. 7/9/2014 ESPN staff The romance of the free flowing, relatively high-scoring World Cup Group Stage is a distant memory now.
Oscar could move from the wing into Neymar’s central role in the “3,” with Willian (say) taking on Oscar’s role. But keep in mind that (1) Neymar was the star of that match and (2) Germany’s midfielders will likely be more physical and energetic than Spain’s were on that day.
The three forwards would be Hulk, Oscar, and Fred (or maybe Jo).
The Brazilians aren’t mugs, though; they have many players in the next echelon.
In that match, Germany brought in Klose (tied for the most prolific World Cup scorer ever) to play forward. Both decisions proved to be big mistakes. Fred, who plays up front, was a reliable goal scorer for Brazil until the World Cup began, but has been firing blanks since (when firing at all). Brazil stayed with its 4-2-3-1 formation, but abandoned the rugged, cynical approach play it used against Colombia. Pogba, one of the stars of the tournament, was largely ineffective. The three midfielders would be selected from Luis Gustavo, Fernandinho, Paulinho, and Ramires. Skip to navigation < > ... parading slowly onto the field linked in crocodile formation… Or, if Scolari really wanted to be bold, he could go without a true “Number 9” and select Hulk, Oscar, and Willian.
Using this formation, Brazil was able to rout Spain — tiki taka and all. Brazil stayed with its 4-2-3-1 formation, but abandoned the rugged, cynical approach play it used against Colombia. At full strength, I would pick Brazil. The oddsmakers have Germany the slight favorite.

The match was the third final between the two countries, a World Cup record, after their 1986 and 1990matches, and billed a…
