Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus’s goal helped secure a 1-0 win for Brazil over European giants Germany. Prior to this match the German side was undefeated in its last 22 matches
This was the first full meeting between the two countries since Germany embarrassed Brazil 7-1 in the 2014 World Cup semi-last in Belo Horizonte.
Jesus put Brazil ahead with an effective plunging header late in the first half.
He missed another chance with a header and Germany’s Julian Draxler had a late shot tipped over as Brazil hung on.
It implied Joachim Low’s side, the prevailing title holders and the team top of the world rankings, lost out of the blue since a 2-0 vanquish by France in the semi-finals of Euro 2016.
From that point forward, they had won 16 times and drawn six preceding this match at the Olympiastadion.
