Video: Highlights from Germany’s beat down of Brazil with no defense makes a lot more sense

We have all been ranting about Germany’s epic 7-1 beat down of Brazil in the semifinals of the 2014 World Cup for a few days now. Personally I’ve been scrambling for an explanation for how the host country fell apart in such epic fashion. Thanks to some digging, I may have figured out the real reason for A Seleção’s collapse.

If you look closely at the video below, you can tell why Germany had such an easy time scoring. The Brazilians weren’t actually on the field! Look, Julio Cesar, David Luiz, Marcelo, Bernard, Maicon and company were clearly off getting hot pretzels. How did Luiz Felipe Scolari allow this to happen?!?

Check out the video below:

Seriously, that really explains a lot. I really can’t believe I didn’t catch that the first few times I watched the game.
