Football legend, Pele has expressed shock over Brazil’s humiliating defeat against Germany in the first semi-final match of the ongoing 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The Selecao, as the Brazilian national football team is popularly called by their fans, were defeated 1-7 by Germany inside the Belo Horizonte stadium on Tuesday, 8 July, 2014.

Reacting to the defeat on his twitter handle, Pele, who played in three World Cup-winning Brazil teams, said: “I always said that football is a box of surprises. Nobody in this world expected this result.”


Pele was, however, quick to cast aside his country’s surprising defeat, saying the Selecao would deliver in Russia in 2018.

“We’ll get the sixth title in Russia. Congratulations to Germany,” Pele wrote on his Twitter feed.

Brazil had been hoping to extend their record of five wins in the competition.



But, as with their previous hosting in 1950, they failed to land the trophy on home soil.

The host country would now await the loser of the second semi final match between Argentina and the Netherlands scheduled for tonight to find out who they would confront in the third place match.

The final would take place on 13 July, 2014.
