Hummels: Time to make the 'big' World Cup dream come true

The Germany defender insists there will be no wild celebrations after their destruction of Brazil and has called on his team-mates to focus quickly on the final

Mats Hummels has urged Germany to focus on securing a fourth World Cup, claiming that there will be no overexcitement over beating Brazil.

Germany earned an incredible 7-1 win over the tournament hosts in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday, with Toni Kroos and Andre Schurrle scoring twice and Thomas Muller, Miroslav Klose and Sami Khedira adding to the scoresheet before Oscar’s consolation.

However, Hummels stressed that, since Germany knew they had won the game early on, they experienced a sense of calm at the final whistle and are already fully concentrating on the next fixture.

“We think of it now, enjoy it and show our best on Sunday,” the 25-year-old defender told reporters.

“It was surprisingly quiet. You can also say without being arrogant – we have known for over an hour that we are through and that is different from tight games when you feel high emotion at full-time.

“This is really something special, what each individual has done. And we will now try with everything we have to have to make the big dream come true.”

Toni Kroos echoed the thoughts of his compatriot, stressing that the final was now the sole concern despite the impressive result against the Selecao.

“We have played a great game, we have almost overrun them at the beginning,” he said.

“We have had an incredible game but another game is still waiting. We are here to win the World Cup, we are not yet there.”
