Good morning folks! If you needed more proof that last night really happened then one cursory glance on Twitter this morning must surely have confirmed it. 

Whether it's Photoshopped images of Angela Merkel replacing Christ the Redeemer on the Rio skyline or David Luiz being subjected to yet more ridicule, the internet is best to be avoiding if you have any Brazilian ties.

For those of you who can stomach more coverage of the samba nation's downfall, we'll bring you all of the best reaction to Germany's stunning demolition of the hosts as they scored four goals in just 400 first-half seconds on their way to a 7-1 mauling in Belo Horizonte.

As the embers cool on last night's devastation, we'll eventually turn our focus to tonight's second semi-final between Netherlands and Argentina. We promise!

There's still much more juice to squeeze from last night's action, however, so pull up a chair and sit back as we try and digest one of the most shocking nights in World Cup history.

This summer's tournament just keeps on giving!
