Miroslav Klose of Germany celebrates after scoring his record-breaking 16th World Cup goal.

Germany beat Brazil 7-1 on Tuesday, ending the host country's run in the World Cup semifinals. The German team scored four goals in less than seven minutes (23', 24', 26', 29'). Germany's Miroslav Klose also became the World Cup's all-time leading scorer during the game.

ESPN reports that this is just second time ever that Brazil has conceded 7+ goals in a game. (The first was against Yugoslavia in 1934.) It was also the worst ever loss by a host country.
