The Americans could not get out of their own way against Germany. No matter. The Americans lost 1-0 but still advanced to the round of 16 after Portugal defeated Ghana.
Switzerland held out for as long as it could, but Argentina scored deep into extra time thanks to Angel Di Maria to win 1-0 and advance to the quarterfinals.

The Germans steamrolled past Brazil 7-1 in the semifinals and broke the heart of 200 million people in the process. As Germany piled on the goals -- ahead 5-0 at halftime -- Brazil fans were seen sobbing in the stands in Belo Horizonte. As this little boy can testify to, defeat truly never tasted so badly.
Germany's World Cup Winning Volley
