Germany are one of the title favorites this year and when they played Ronaldo’s Portugal they showed exactly why. They clobbered them 4-0! Thomas Muller opened the scoring in the 12th minute with a penalty. Then in the 32nd minute Mats Hummels scored to make it 2-0. Then right before halftime Muller netted his second of the match, 3-0 Germany. Finally to end Portugal’s misery Muller scored his third goal earning his hat trick in the 79th minute. That match showed that Germany will be a strong side and a force to be reckoned with in this 2014 World Cup.
