Germany 0-1 Brazil: international friendly

Brazil beat Germany 1-0 at Berlin's Olympiastadion in a friendly on Tuesday as the two sides met for the first time since the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Four years ago in Belo Horizonte, Brazil suffered possibly the greatest humiliation in their footballing history as they were beaten 7-1 by the eventual champions to exit their home tournament in pitiful fashion at the semi-final stage.

It will take a long time for Brazilians to expunge that horrible result from their minds, but the Selecao began the process on Tuesday as Gabriel Jesus' first-half strike earned them a narrow win.

Germany nearly stole a draw in the 92nd minute when Toni Kroos found space to shoot, but goalkeeper Alisson did well to save.

The defeat ended Germany's 22-game unbeaten streak, which came one game short from matching their record of 23 from 1978-81. Brazil also halted another Germany 22-game unbeaten run in 1998.
