'Brazil 1 - 7 Germany' Voted The Greatest Moment In World Cup History

The SPORTbible audience have been busy voting on social media in recent days.

Firstly, thousands of fans agreed that the Jabulani used at the 2010 World Cup is the greatest ball of all time, while 'Wavin Flag' was handed the prize of greatest World Cup song.

Now, in our most recent poll on Twitter, 42% of people reckon that Germany's famous 7-1 thrashing of Brazil in 2014 is worthy of the title: greatest moment in World Cup history.

Look away now, Brazil fans.

We gave you four options. The first being Zinedine Zidane walking past the World Cup after being sent off in his last ever professional game.

Who could forget that headbutt on Italy defender Marco Materazzi back in 2006? It will forever be regarded as one of the most controversial moments in football history.

Then we went back to when South Africa hosted Mexico in an enthralling encounter in Johannesburg. The 80,000 capacity stadium nearly erupted when Siphiwe Tshabalala opened the scoring ten minutes into the second half.

In fact, this goal was exactly eight years ago to the day, but it still wasn't voted the greatest moment in World Cup history.

Brazil suffering one of the most embarrassing World Cup defeats as Germany beat the hosts 7-1 to reach the final was your winner.

While Andres Iniesta's tribute to Dani Jarque after scoring the winning goal in the 2010 final was also mentioned in the list.



Thoughts on our results? Do you think there's a greater World Cup moment than the famous 7-1?
