7 – 1


Hi, my friends! How are you? Today we will talk about the 7 – 1. The tragic game resulting in Brazil 1 x Germany 7 in the World Cup 2014.

The History of the 7 – 1

After a sixty-four year gap, Brazil was once again the World Cup host. This tournament had thirty-two teams and twelve cities received matches with the finals in Rio de Janeiro at the Maracanã Stadium. After such a long time waiting, Brazilians were really excited and anxious about this tournament. Many people considered this World Cup as a second chance to erase the memory of the 1950 World Cup, the famous Maracanazo.

Brazil breezed through the group phase without any problems, the team passed in first place with two wins and one draw. Also winning against Chile in the round of 16 and Colombia in the quarter-finals, Brazil faced Germany in the semi-finals. The same Germany who played and lost against Brazil in the 2002 Word Cup. Because of that, a lot of people were very confident about this match.

Brazil Vs Germany

As mentioned before, people were really confident about this game because Brazil won the last championship match they played against Germany and also because the Brazil Team would be playing at home. But it was a different story, in addition to not having its biggest star, Neymar who had been injured, the Brazilian Team couldn’t manage to play the game. After the first German goal, the team seemed totally lost and then a tragedy came along. Let’s see a video with the goals of this match:

You can imagine how sad everybody was after this match. Many people call it Mineiraço, because of the name of the stadium (Mineirão) and also comparing it to the Maracanazo in 1950. After this match many people realized that Brazilian football needed to change and that match was a huge trauma to overcome, going down in history as the largest and maybe the most tragic defeat for the Brazilian Team.

Alright, guys? We learned more about this sad episode of defeat, the 7 – 1 of the Brazilian Team against Germany.

See you next time.
Hugs from Rio de Janeiro.

I’ve just started online classes with Prof. Ana Carolina & she is the absolute best! It’s my first time learning Portuguese and I was speaking full sentences in the first class. Obrigada!

Small classes, diverse accents, and engaging professors make Rio & Learn Online a fantastic choice! I've been thrilled with my experience at Rio & Learn Online so far. The small class sizes (around 1-3 others students) allow for personalized attention and plenty of opportunities to practice speaking. What's more, having different professors throughout the program exposes you to various accents, preparing you for real-world interactions. I opted for the full-time program, which involves 2 hours of daily learning from Monday to Friday. After just over 12 weeks, I can confidently say my Portuguese has improved dramatically. The professors are incredibly engaging and encourage students to utilize real-life examples, solidifying the learning process. While I'm only halfway through the program, I'm confident in recommending Rio & Learn Online to anyone seeking to learn Portuguese in a supportive and effective environment. I've gone from being a complete beginner (only knowing hi and bye) to holding conversations - and I'm excited to see how much further I can progress! I'll be back with another review after completing the program, but for now: Rio & Learn Online - highly recommended!

Rio & Learn e um novo jeito de ensinar a lingua portuguesa. Puro prazer e muito eficiente. Quanto mais alunos na aula mais vida. Eu aconselho voces escolher as aulas grupais por porque sao interativas: rir, falar, argumentar, compartir uma lingua!

Après 3 semaines que je suis dans cette école et je peux déjà parler portugais. Certe avec des erreurs mais j'ai fait des progrès fulgurant. En plus, du Lundi au Vendredi l'ecole propose des activitées qu'il appelle "Rio Live" ce qui permet de visiter en même temps Rio tout en parlant Portugais et de rencontrer des gens😃 Toute l'équipe est genial et est prêts à aider si besoin 😁
I've been taking the group online courses with Rio&Learn for 2 months. They offer a fantastic way to learn Portuguese and get speaking practice if you don't live in Brazil. The teachers are engaging and are able to adjust their level of Portuguese to whatever level you are at. Obrigado!

C'est vraiment fantastique...RioAndLearn. Les cours de portugais...ça vaut vraiment la peine. Les cours ont lieu du lundi au vendredi, (de 9h à 13h) et en après midi, ce sont des activités libres en groupe. (Soccer de plage, volleyball , excursions, visites des lieux touristiques, etc) Vendredi soir, on est allé à Lapa, un quartier nocturne de Rio. C'est quelque chose à voir! Des rues bondées de monde, des orchestres, des discothèques...Allô les décibels! L'apprentissage du portugais se fait en immersion, aussi bien en salle de classe que dans les activités extérieures organisées par Rio&Learn. On est plongé dans la langue portugaise et la culture Brésilienne.... Obligé de parler portugais....🫡 Je le recommande. Pierre Pedro, Montréal, Canada
