    Muller-inspired Germany thrash ten-man Portugal

    Germany sent a message to the rest of the competitors here in Brazil with a 4-0 demolition of Portugal. The Lusitanians got no joy out of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, suffered two injuries to key players, and Pepe saw red just before half-time. The Germans, for their part, were in supreme form, scoring almost at will and getting the tournament’s first hat-trick through Thomas Muller.

    Portugal had the first chance of the game in sunny Salvador, but Ronaldo’s effort from a tight angle was a false dawn. The Germans were in total control in short order and surged into attack. Portuguese keeper Rui Patricio misplayed the ball out of his area, gifting it to the feet of Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, who somehow pushed his shot at the open goal wide of the mark. Minutes later, however, the Germans got their first goal. Mario Gotze was too quick and too clever for Joao Pereira, who resorted to dragging him down in the area. Thomas Muller stepped up to convert the spot-kick low and to his left, sending the German fans in the stadium into delirium.

    From there on out, the Germans took control. Mesut Ozil was in complete control in the creative role. Incisive in attack, Muller and Gotze threatened constantly and Portugal coach Paulo Bento was forced into an early substitution. Ailing striker Hugo Almeida quit the pitch after a collision with Mats Hummels and was replaced by Guinea-Bissau-born new boy Eder, just 21. If got worse for Portugal, too, when just after the hour-mark, Mats Hummels rose higher than anyone in the penalty area to head home from a corner.

    It really turned into a half to forget for the Portuguese when Pepe lost his cool. He head-butted Muller while the German predator sat on the pitch and was shown a straight red card for his efforts. Muller exacted revenge by adding his second goal at the death of the opening period, taking advantage of some slack defending and hammered home from near the penalty spot. Three goals down and a man short, their superstar captain CR7 unable to influence the game, Portuguese heads were spinning at the break.

    Things didn’t get much better in the second-half. Mid-way through the period, creative midfielder Fabio Coentrao pulled up with a hamstring injury and had to be carried off on a stretcher. It looked the kind injury that won’t heal in short order. Not long after, German defender and scorer Hummels was also helped off the pitch after damaging his knee. It didn’t keep the Germans from scoring again, however, and 12 minutes from time Muller completed his hat-trick – the first of these finals – to make it 4-0.

    The wounded Portuguese had a late penalty claim denied and are now in desperate need of a good result in their next game on 22 June in Manaus. The Germans, who are oozing sunshine and confidence, take on Ghana the day before in Fortaleza.

    Germany-Portugal: Quotes

    Joachim Low, Germany coach
    Winning was our only option and the team went out there with that in mind. Thomas (Muller) did really well in attack and created a lot of space for us. We dominated the midfield and got the ball up to the forwards, where we were very fast. We were compact and stopped Portugal from launching counter-attacks. The second half was different, because the main thing for us was to keep possession of the ball and hit them on the break. (Jerome) Boateng also did a very good of marking Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Thomas Muller, Budweiser Man of the Match
    We started the game well and everything went brilliantly for us. We had chances at the start and the second goal came from a dead-ball situation and gave us a pretty big cushion. We made the most of our chances and though the second goal didn’t exactly kill the game, we knew it would be difficult for them to come back, even more so with just ten men.

    Paulo Bento, Portugal coach
    The first half was the problem for us. With the exception of the first few minutes, when we made a slow start, we were pretty much in control of things, and it was a fairly even game until the first goal. In the second half we just tried to cope with being a man down the best we could. It’s very strange to have someone sent off in a game like this. That’s pretty much what the match hinged on.
