The best World Cup memes following Germany's Brazilian demolition

Who would have thought Germany would beat Brazil 7-1 in their World Cup semi-final at Belo Horizonte?
The first-half was one of the most shocking 45 minutes of football ever witnessed, with Joachim Low's cerebral side comprehensively battering the hosts.
Toni Kroos scored twice, alongside strikes from Sami Khedira, Thomas Muller and Miroslav Klose. With his goal, Klose became the highest goal scorer in World Cup history with his 16th effort.
Two more were added after the break before the hosts pulled one back at the death to make the score line marginally more respectable.
Social media went into overdrive and as well as some eye-catching memes, players past and present were tweeting their astonishment at the unlikely scoreline.

In nigh on half a century of watching football, that's the most extraordinary, staggering, bewildering game I've ever witnessed.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) July 8, 2014
