Germany vs. Portugal: World Cup Group G Score, Grades and Post-Match Reaction
Thomas Mueller is at it again, and with a few repeat performances, Germany might be too.
Mueller helped deliver a perfect start to Germany's 2014 World Cup campaign, scoring a hat-trick in an impressive 4-0 victory over Portugal in both teams' Group G opener Monday at the Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador, Brazil.
The Bayern Munich forward scored twice before half-time as Germany raced to a 3-0 lead over Cristiano Ronaldo's stunned Portugal. Mueller then added Germany's fourth in the second half to polish off one of the tournament's top team displays so far.
Not that this is unfamiliar ground for Die Mannschaft.
