Gallery: Wreckage from a 7-1 rout

Wow. Just... wow. Germany absolutely destroyed not just Brazil in their 7-1 rout, but a nation's dream and probably a few careers along the way - while sending records tumbling.

This was Brazil's heaviest defeat ever, their first defeat on home soil in 39 years, and to rub salt into the wounds, Miroslav Klose moved ahead of Ronaldo as the World Cup's greatest ever goalscorer.

It was a devastating end to Brazil's World Cup campaign - and with a thrid place play-off game now still ahead of them, they can't even go into hiding to lick their wounds.

Meanwhile an imperious Germany march into the final. Regardless of whether they face Holland or Argentina - decided tomorrow morning - it would be a brave man who bets against them on this form.
