Germany’s Thomas Muller said his side’s 7-1 Fifa World Cup semi-final thrashing of hosts Brazil was “totally crazy”.
The Bayern Munich forward – who opened the scoring in the 11th minute – said he was in shock after his team reached the World Cup final in emphatic style.
“We can’t run away with ourselves,” Muller, 24, said. “Just as it was said that we were finished after the Algeria game, now we’ll be praised to the heavens.
“We haven’t reached our goal yet.”
Muller called for his team-mates to put their “heart and soul” into one more game – the World Cup final on Sunday.
“Of course, we didn’t expect that score,” he said. “But you can see how different games can go.
“Brazil reacted differently and moved forward fast when they won the ball, which left more space than you get against defence-minded teams.
“We used that until the middle of the first half and, at some point, the opponent has to break.”
