A big thanks for the Germans here who did not gloat despite their crushing and well deserved triumph. As for my fellow Brazilians on Bigsoccer, keep your chin up. Let this terrible lesson be the start of a new era. Keep in mind that Brazilian soccer began in that afternoon in 1950, when we lost to Uruguay at Maracanã. We fell indeed, but eight years later we started a journey that took us to winning the Jules Rimet and two more Fifa cups, in a total of unmatched 5 World Cup titles. This may be rebirth, but it is by no means the end. Perhaps the harsh style of Felipão and Parreira needed indeed this painful death. But despite their ugly tactics with players such as Hulk replacing the likes of Lucas, Brasil still breeds the best players in the world and this is as indisputable as the resounding German victory today.
