GERMANY'S shocking 7-1 win over Brazil yesterday in the 2014 FIFA World Cup semi-final may have put the European giants in the driving seat for the title but anything can happen in the final, says Vodafone Fiji under-20 coach Ravinesh Kumar.

Regardless of the outcome in the showdown, he believes fans will get to enjoy "one of the great finals in World Cup history" on Monday (Fiji time).

Kumar said the Germans had the right attitude and took advantage of the "sloppy" Brazilian defence to humiliate the five-time World Cup champions.

Netherlands takes on Argentina in the second semi-final at 8am today.
