By now I am sure you saw the publicity that followed the Germany National Team win over Brazil in the World Cup semi-finals. The reason it made headlines is that the score was 7-1. In World Cup Soccer most world teams can win the title with 7 goals total through the entire tournament. Scoring 7 goals in one game, beyond peewee soccer, is unheard of in the sports world.The sad part of these stories is the craziness placed on a single athletic contest. To the people of Brazil, their national pride was crushed. To the World Soccer fan this publicity is not such a rare occurrence. We, in the United States, have not considered soccer as being at this level of athletic prowess. I suppose it might occur at an NCAA Final Four, a Super Bowl Championship, or the National Football title game.Countries should put this type of national pride into improving the lives of their countrymen instead of thinking of soccer as the “be all-end all”. Brazil is still there today and will be there next week despite that soccer score.
