Germany vs. Portugal in GIFs

Portugal implodes in first group-of-death match

This was one of the marquee match-ups of the much-talked Group G and the entire first round. It ended up being an awful afternoon for Portugal—a red card, an injury to one of it’s star players—and easy win for the Germans. Here are our favorite GIFs.

Hey, Cristano! Can I be your ballboy? http://soccer.fusion.tv/2014/06/13/oh-cristiano-the-music-video/

 

attempt

Rui Patrício’s back-pass gifts Khedira a chance, but the goal was just too open for little Sami.

 

YELLOWCARD

Goetze is pulled down in the box.

 

coach

Poker-face Paolo Bento is nervous.

 

bodyblock

Boateng Body Block, son!

 

attempt2

Goetze nearly scores, but Pereira forces the corner. You know what happens next.
goal2

In the pre-headbutt era, this happened. It made it 2-0.

 

headbutt

As if Portugal wasn’t up against it already, Pepe ends Portugal’s hopes.

 

goal3

If the first goal was a nail in the coffin, the second was a 20-foot-deep hole in the ground. The Pepe red card was a ton of concrete poured into that hole and the third goal a…just more concrete. Here’s that third goal.

 

run-in

Get your act together, Portugal.

 

groin

Coentrão’s day, possibly World Cup, comes to an end.

Cristiano Ronaldo tantrum.

 

goal4

After Patricio spills a cross/shot, Mueller completes his hat-trick.

 

deflection

 

When a one-man wall is enough to deny Ronaldo, it’s not going to be a good day for Portugal.
