Brazil's 1-0 win over world champions Germany gave the South Americans a modicum of revenge for their 7-1 semifinal humiliation four years ago but the confidence boost comes with a caveat for the five-time World Cup winners. Coach Tite was delighted with the way his players overcame the Germans in Berlin, particularly in the second half, when the understrength home side fought hard for an equalizer.The performance ended Germany's 22-game unbeaten run and bolstered Tite's record of just one loss in 19 games.Historically, Brazil tend to do better at the World Cup when they go there as underdogs.
