According to a report in "The Independent" today, a New Zealander won a bet after getting the score right in the Germany-Brazil game.
Germany demolished hosts Brazil 7-1. It was 5-0 at half-time and soon became 7-0 only for the home team to have a consolation goal in the final minute of regulation time.
"A betting firm has revealed that either one very lucky, incredibly talented fortune teller or someone with access to the Delorean placed a $2 bet on Germany beating Brazil by the incredible scoreline. Placed at odds of 250:1, the bet landed the gambler $500," the report said.
"The Australian betting site TAB, with which the bet was placed, told The National Business Review that 9,700 others gambled on the exact score without success," it added.
Germany will play the winner of Argentina-Netherlands second semi-final for the trophy on July 13 in Rio de Janeiro.
