Sup Travellers?! Brazil's 7-1 defeat by Germany in the World Cup Semi-Finals could have been much worse according to German players who are now revealing that they all basically pledged to go easy on Brazil in the second half.

The German team gathered in the dressing room during the half time break and collectively decided not to humiliate the host nation anymore because it is disrespectful and incredibly rude to embarrass your hosts.

“We just made it clear that we had to stay focused and not try to humiliate them,” German defender Mats Hummels said, according to Daily Mail. “You have to show the opponent respect and it was very important that we did this and didn't try to show some magic or something like this. It was important we played our game for 90 minutes. We said we had to stay serious and concentrate at half-time. That’s something you don’t have to show on the pitch if you are playing.”

But despite Germany's reluctance to score goals they still managed to score two more. That is definitely not a good sign for Brazilian football.

“After our second goal they got confused,” Hummels said. “They were not organized on the pitch and after that we didn't miss a chance until we scored the fifth goal. This doesn't happen too often. You just have to enjoy it.”

Though he insists they’re not getting cocky about Sunday’s final with Argentina. “We must enjoy what happened, but if we lose the final, this semi-final will not be worth anything.”

While watching I did notice that Germany's will to score was almost non-existent. They weren't attacking the ball as viciously as they did in the first half and their defense seemed almost too easy to penetrate. Even the commentator noticed how easily Brazil was penetrating the German defense in the second half. But despite it, Brazil only scored one and Germany easily added two more to the already humiliating scoreline. And that's the power of German engineering. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
