Germany have won only three World Cup games since demolishing Brazil in 2014

Brazil v Germany: Semi Final - 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Germany sent shockwaves through the footballing world when they demolished the Selecao on their home soil in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Joachim Low's men won the semi-final 7-1.

They went on to become world champions after defeating Argentina in the final, courtesy of a memorable extra-time winning goal from Mario Gotze.

However, they haven't qualified for the knockout stages of the tournament since. In fact, the four-time world champions have won only two games in the tournament since their triumph in 2014.

Their sole win in Russia came against Sweden. Toni Kroos scored a spectacular last-ditch free-kick winner. Losses to South Korea and Mexico meant the defending world champions didn't get into the knockouts in 2018.

In the last 60 years, only one other team scored 4 goals in the first half of a World Cup knockout stage match.

It was Germany in 2014 against Brazil in a 7-1 semifinal win

They failed to advance beyond the group stage this time as well. Their sole win of the campaign this time came against Costa Rica. However, it went in vain.

The Selecao, meanwhile, have advanced to the last eight once again. They will look to better their performance from 2018 as Belgium ended the five-time world champion's run that year in the quarter-finals.
