Butler landed in Rio de Janiero Monday and headed to a party where he hung out with former Friday Night Lights actor Taylor Kitsch. The two were enjoying the pre-semifinal revelry in matching navy blue shirts on the roof of Hotel Budweiser in Copacabana Beach.
On Tuesday, Butler headed to the Belo Horizonte to watch the Brazil vs. Germany match where he was spotted wearing the yellow jersey of the home team. Unfortunately for Butler, he didn’t get to see a Brazil victory, as the squad fell in a shocking 1-7 defeat. The loss left Brazil fans in tears and players struggling to explain how they let the game get so far away from them.
Germany’s Thomas Müller put Germany ahead in the eleventh minute of play. Three more goals were scored – one my Miroslav Klose and two by Toni Kroos – between the 23rd and 26th minutes. Sami Khedira finished the scoring in the first half to put Germany up by five. In the second half, André Schürrle netted two more goals, while Oscar spoiled Germany’s shutout with a goal in the 90th minute.
Germany will play the winner of today’s semifinal between Argentina and the Netherlands in the 2014 World Cup final, which will be played Sunday at 3:00 p.m. EST.
