Brazil sends Germany gift from 7-1 loss

Brazil sends Germany a gift from that unforgettable 7-1 World Cup loss

June 6, 2018 By Ali M.
The European nation has been awarded a present from that historical semi-final tie in the name of charity.

Brazil’s 7-1 defeat to Germany in the last World Cup, the nation’s greatest loss ever, remains one of the worst nights in the South American giant’s history. However, rather than stay bitter, the five-time champion has instead done a great gesture by awarding their enemy a gift from that night.

The host of the 2014 edition has gone and awarded the European nation one of the goals from that thrashing at the Belo Horizonte stadium. This present consists of the goalpost and net that suffered five of the seven goals that the Selecao conceded, which will be given to the Museum of the German FA (DFB) in Dortmund.

This gesture is all in the name of charity. The hope is that the goal from that semi-final tie will raise money which will thus go to a just cause in Brazil, as revealed by the manager of Mineirao institutional relations Ludmila Ximenes.

“Unfortunately, we cannot change history, but in relation to this game we have found a way to benefit people from all over the country with resources collected in Germany that will be directed 100 percent to social projects in Brazil," Ximenes said, as per Marca.

"The agreement has already guaranteed funds of at least 100,000 euros for our projects."

The goal net will be divided into 8,150 pieces, with each piece being sent to anyone who donates a symbolic €71. The aim is to raise up to €500,000 which could then be put to charitable causes.

As for the Brazil National Team, they will be looking to make amends for their 2014 failure on home soil. Gone are those dark days, as they have now returned to being a deadly, feared side under Tite. The likes of Neymar, Coutinho, Jesus, Willian, and Firmino are ready to wreak havoc in Russia and possibly bring home a sixth World Cup title. However, one could imagine the Selecao will have to face Germany somewhere down that road.
