Zzzzzzz.... Germany got the goal they needed early and forced France to beat them, which they couldn't do.

Brazil: 2 - Colombia: 1

On that day in 1954 the West Germans came from two goals down to beat Ferenc Puskás' Mighty Magyars and lift their very first World Cup in what is known as ‘The Miracle of Bern'. Perhaps it is fitting that Joachim Löw's side progressed on the anniversary of that game and did so with relative ease against a disappointing French team.
