A record 32.6 million TV viewers in Germany watched the national side's 7-1 World Cup record victory over Brazil, the highest ever figure in the country, a specialist media site said Wednesday.

The spectacular match, which saw Germany reach Sunday's World Cup final, was broadcast on ZDF public TV from 10:00 pm local time (2000 GMT) Tuesday in the country of about 80 million people.

The audience figure topped the previous record set in 2010 when 31.1 million fans watched Germany lose to Spain in the World Cup semi-final in South Africa, said the Meedia site.
