A brace each from Toni Kroos and Andre Schurrle and goals from Thomas Muller, Miroslav Klose and Sami Khedira helped Germany beat Brazil in the semi-final of the FIFA World Cup. (FIFA World Cup 2014 Tracker | Matchcentre)
03.29 (IST): If there was any fixture that could trump the group stage match between Netherlands and Spain, it was this. Now for the entertainment to shift to Sao Paolo, where Argentina and Netherlands battle it out for a spot in the final. A dream final between the free-spirited Germans and the Dutch? Or Messi's chance at international redemption? We will have to wait and watch out for that. For now, as Germany celebrate away in the morose back alleys of Belo Horizonte, I take leave for now. While you wait (im)patiently for Argentina and Netherlands to kick-off, you could be treated to some quality Test match, the first of the five-match series between India and England at Nottingham and follow it through our live coverage. That's it from me for now, goodbye!
03.26 (IST): What a game of records! First Miroslav Klose scored his 16th World Cup goal to become the highest scorer in the history of the tournament. Muller took his goals tally in this tournament to 5, just one short of leader James Rodridguez who has six. This is Brazil's worst international loss, in the course of which, Germany became the leading goal scorers in all World Cups with 223 goals.
