I am not a huge fan of soccer, let alone the all-time sport, The World Cup 2014. However, it doesn’t take a genius to spot the humiliation showed by Brazil during their last match against Germany. It was under the limelight of an embarrassing defeat on home soil.
Based on their glorifying record, Brazil has never lost a match since 1975. But after 5 World Cup series, many were stunned to see the match highlight as the so called unbeaten-Brazil failed to proceed to the next stage in human history.
BRAzil emBRAssing highlights
As the world still talks about the last match, we could relate the 7 goals with 7 embarrassments. In fact today, it ain’t a good day to be wearing the yellow tops and blue shorts (so to speak). heee..
7 goals that dunked Brazil into slump.
1. As the match started, GOAL in minute-10! What was the odds in that? If that’s not an early sign, so what is? Thanks to Thomas Müller.
2. Get ready to panic. GOAL!! Minute-23 to make 2 – 0. Thumbs up for Miroslav Klose.
3. About a minute later, Toni Kroos joined in the fun. 3 – 0 y’all.
4. Is that it? Hell no. 4- 0. Toni Kroos again scored another goal. It’s “Kroos” time.
5. A high five to the face when Sami Khedira scored yet another goal. 5 – 0.
6. Second half of the match seen a much anticipated devastated team, 6ermany – Br0zil. (6 – 0)
Heads Up Germany, here comes Oscar
Finally, it was a blessing (or not) for Brazil when Brazil scored 1 thanks to Oscar. Nonetheless, with the nosediving of the team performance, one goal wouldn’t suffice to cater the home team’s joy, would it?
Alas, Brazil 1 – Germany 7.
How do muslim players handle ramadhan?
With Germany reaching to final, I wonder how its Muslim player, Mesut Ozil will stand tall against dehydration and energy deficiency during Ramadhan.
Ozil said he falls into this category. “I can’t do it because of my job here, and I’d like to think the Algerians will do it just like me,” he told kicker. “We would risk our health by not drinking or eating. And that would also not be consistent with the Quran.” – ESPNFC
There were others who considered this as a personal issue and by uttering the question itself is actually unethical and lack of respect.
“It is not the first time I have Muslim players in my team, I myself am a Muslim, and I’ve always left them totally free. This is a private issue — it has to do with private freedom of expression. Stop asking me about Ramadan, otherwise I will get up and leave,” said Vahid (Algerian coach) – Malay Mail Online
Whatever choices opted by the players, they have their own reason in accordance to their responsibilities and devotion to ALLAH.
