Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Joachim Gauck will be at the Maracanã Stadium on Sunday (Jul 13), when die Mannschaft is to fight for their fourth World Cup trophy. Their arrival in Brazil is scheduled for Saturday (12), and their return on the next day. The country’s Embassy in Brasília has confirmed the trip.

The Europeans will play the winner from the Netherlands vs Argentina, to take place today (9), at 5 pm (UTC-3), at the Corinthians Arena.

On Tuesday (8), Germany defeated Brazil 7-1 in Belo Horizonte. Five goals were scored during the first half alone. Apart from the ??, the Brazilian squad saw the Germans break two records.
