Germany 4-0 Portugal: Muller scores hat-trick as Pepe is sent-off

Germany’s Thomas Muller plundered the first hat-trick of this goal-laden World Cup as Portugal crumbled in the early afternoon heat in Salvador.

The Bayern Munich star scored an early penalty and then a goal from open play in each half to give the 2010 semi-finalist the perfect start at Arena Fonte Nova.


Central defender Mats Hummels scored Germany’s other goal on an afternoon when just about everything that could go wrong did go wrong for Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal.

Not only did they lose centre forward Hugo Almeida and Fabio Coentrao to serious-looking injuries, they also saw central defender Pepe sent off with the score at 2-0 in the first half for a completely unnecessary head butt on Mueller.
