In my first language ,"Fake ball "means match-fixing in english.
This World Cup video shows the scene of "maybe Match-fixing".Already been discuss by many sports fans.
Do you think it's match-fixing?

No match fixing, allow me the indulgence of quoting myself from a very silly thread:




In short, their team is well short of the qualities needed. They had no leaders on the pitch. Fred is about as good a striker as my nan who died 20 years ago (in spite of his 18 or so international goals). Scolari is slavishly loyal to a core of unreliable players. Their senior players do not take responsibility for mistakes and put it down to bad luck. Their full-backs think that they are wingers, but not being the legendary Cafu or Roberto Carlos they are unable to fulfil both roles. They cannot handle pressure. Most of the team now play in Europe, which when coupled with blanket coverage of world-wide club games means that their once famous mystique to European players is long gone. David Luis cannot hold his position, mark a player or organise a defence, which in the absence of Thiago Silva as captain means it all falls apart. Their midfield lacks the experience to dictate tempo. The out of practice Julio Caesar is now a demoralised average shot stopper and little more. They have poor movement. They believed that the emotion of losing Neymar would carry them through against Germany which is just plain silly.

Add this to a match against the supremely savvy, ruthless and efficient Germans and it was really a foregone conclusion. Simples.

If Germans are supremely ruthless ,they can make over than 10 goals(I would like to see it)...they are too conservative in second half.

So no to your question no match fixed.

Dont focus on the goal keeper watch the other players, i am in no way a soccer fan i just want to ask is it right for the defending team to jump out of the way of the ball when the attacking team is striking and passing?

The motivation for match-fixing normally comes from betting-syndicates.
Was there much betting on a six-goal margin? A smaller margin would have been sufficient for a simple "victory" bet.

The simplest form of match-fixing works through the officials. But surely the officials had very little to do with the way that match ended? In order to get the Brazilian defence to collapse in that way, the fixers would have had to bribe half the Brazilian team. And would the team have accepted the bribes- in their own country in their show-case event, almost putting their own lives in danger?
However much people might want to make "bribery" the scape-goat, the real cause is more probably a simple lack of organisation on the field of play.

Also you really think the Brazilian team would throw a match? all of them? in their home country? with their home fans watching?.
Did you even watch it or have you just watched a silly you tube video?
Did you see how distraught they were after the final whistle?.
Best actors ever If they were faking that.

Edit: wondering where this comes from? Replace "volare" in this song with "finale" - there you are.

Just a minute bit of info about the situation in my country:
EVERYBODY goes "shhhhh, we didn't win yet. Keep it down! *smirk*"

Because bad luck and such.

In reality, the housekeepers at the DFB in Frankfurt are already preparing a place for the world cup trophy...

I don't know about this particular match but games are being fixed all the time.

it shouldn't be a surprise for anyone as we know how strong and influential betting businesses are.

people who watch certain sports and root for their team religiously are often being duped.

it's all about money, the sport comes second or maybe third.

Yeah, I watched the whole game,it was amazing.
And no match fixing there.
The Germans won fair and square.
They are highly organized,and stick to their strategy, and work well together as a whole team.

A couple of the Brazil players broke down crying after that game.

That match was a supreme example of team-play (ze Germans) against a team full of individuals.
The first half goals, when a German player could have taken a shot he passed it to a player in a better position who then scored. This happened 5 times in the first half.
Its a team sport.
Whereas a Brazilian player in the second half was in the same situation, he would shoot and blaze it wide.
