The Brazil versus Germany ( German : Fußball-WM-Halbfinale Brasilien – Deutschland 2014 ; Portuguese : Semifinal da Copa do Mundo de 2014 – Brasil vs. Alemanha ) football match that took place on 8 July 2014 at the Estádio Mineirão in Belo Horizonte , Brazil, was the first semi-final match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The game was subsequently referred to by the international media as the Mineirazo ( Mineiraço [minejˈɾasu] in Brazil), evoking the spirit of national shame brought by the Maracanazo ( Maracanaço ) in which Brazil unexpectedly lost the 1950 FIFA World Cup on home soil to Uruguay. Brazil subsequently lost the third place playoff to the Netherlands , and Germany went on to win the World Cup for the fourth time after defeating Argentina in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final.

Brazil was hosting the FIFA World Cup for the second time (after 1950 ), and had won the tournament on five previous occasions. Germany was a three-time winner but had not won the tournament in 24 years. Brazil was in the semi-finals for the first time since 2002, from which they emerged victorious and subsequently won the tournament against Germany; while Germany was in a record-breaking fourth consecutive semi-final. [2] Both teams had entered the tournament among the favourites to win, [3] with Germany ranked 2nd and Brazil ranked 3rd in the FIFA World Rankings. [4]
