BELO HORIZONTE Brazil (Reuters) - Brazil’s astonishing 7-1 loss to Germany in the World Cup semi-final was not just unexpected but “inexplicable,” Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar said on Tuesday.

“After the first (Germany) goal we just had a blackout, nobody expected it,” he said.

The Germans ran roughshod over the host nation, scoring five goals in a first-half humiliation, before adding two more after the break.

“Honestly, it’s hard to explain,” Cesar told reporters. “You can’t explain the inexplicable.”
