Brazil's 7-1 Loss To Germany Voted Greatest World Cup Moment

Brazil might be riding high after winning the Copa America on home soil on Sunday night but we're here to remind them of the moment five years ago that they got battered at home in the World Cup, voted the best moment in World Cup history.

On Sunday night Brazil's national team finally buried some demons. The ones that have followed them around since their home World Cup in 2014.

The hosts were expected to win that tournament but only managed to limp to the semi-finals. In the final four though they were absolutely battered 7-1 by Germany, who would go on to win the final.

That match will go down in football legend and it was voted the greatest World Cup moment of all time:

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.

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.


Admittedly we did all of this before Milad Mohammadi famous rolly polly throw-in attempt that went hilarious badly when he bottled it in the final moment of Iran's game with Spain last summer.

That's got to be the greatest World Cup moment ever right?

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