The first semi-final match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup between Brazil v Germany took place on 8 July 2014 at the Estádio Mineirão in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The match ended in a stunning loss for Brazil; Germany led 5–0 at half time, with four goals scored within six minutes, and subsequently brought the score up to 7–0 in the second half. Brazil scored a consolation goal in the last minute, ending the match 1–7. The game was subsequently referred to by the international media as the Mineirazo (Mineirãço), evoking the spirit of national shame brought by the Maracanazo (Maracanaço) in which Brazil unexpectedly lost the 1950 FIFA World Cup on home soil to Uruguay.
Mongrel complex (Complexo de Vira-Lata) is an expression created by the Brazilian novelist and writer Nelson Rodrigues, in which originally he referred to the trauma suffered by Brazilians in 1950, when the National Soccer team was defeated by the Uruguayan national team in the final match of the Soccer World Cup in Maracanã.
