No, because Chinese men are too short, they are unfit for this sport.

The North Koreans did very well in England in 1966.

Losing like that at home? Sure feels relevant.

Have to remember Brazil's reputation, combined wi ...

You're right, it FEELS relevant.

It isn't.

Maybe if your Chinese and your team usually get beaten by that much.

This is a major relevant defeat for anyone who knows soccer.

1. Brazil were #1 favorites, hosts, and expected to win:
2. This was Brazil's second time losing a tournament at home when they were favored to win it all. The first time was the most infamous event in Brazilian football history and well known World Cup history event world wide. Known as The Maracanazo when they lost to Uruguay.
3. 7-1 is the most one sided score line in WC semi-final history. It is Brazils worst defeat in 80 years, and most football super powers have not suffered such a defeat in decades if ever in a competitve WC match.
4.Brazil's defeat was the most complete devastating one sides game in the entire tournament by far.
5. Brazil's first competitve defeat at home since 1984.
6. The WCs all time leading Brazilian scorer was surpassed by German Miroskav Klose in the same game.
7. Brazil have not been strong the entire tournament. They relied on Neymar to score all the goals,  and looked a very average team when playing Mexico and Chile. They tied with Mexico for points z
8. Germany will now most likely become the first non South American country to win the WC in South America. (I would like to see Messi win, but after that brazil annihilation I can't see it.)

If you know anything about soccer, you know it 's very relevant.

Probably becaus they were all playing for their lives and trained much harder under the North Korean system. English players weren't even very fit back then, and the North Korean got lucky because the English underestimated them.

Maybe if you know something about soccer it is very relevant but if you know anything about FOOTBALL, it is irrelevant.

Brazil still is the only country to have qualified for all the world cups since the very first one. It is the country with the most victories and it will still be one of the favourites in the years to come because it won't stop being the kingdom of football.

Sure it's a slap on the face and it is painful. But slaps on the face are irrelevant. As you said they were playing poorly and nobody knowing football expected them to win after their recent displays in friendly matches. Reaching the semi-finals was already unexpected with what was probably the weakest Brazilian team in History.
