It is saved by a Tim Krul! And then there were only four. Good evening,

it is the World Cup semifinals. Tonight, two sides who have lifted

the trophy yet times between them. -- eight.

:01:44.:02:13.

If they win it for a third time, they keep it! Gerd Muller! Again!

:02:14.:02:36.

Brazil have arrived in Bellow horrors on page. Their hopes took a

:02:37.:02:46.

big load in the last round with superstar Neymar ruled out of the

:02:47.:02:52.

tournament, while a Thiago Silva is suspended after a yellow card.

:02:53.:02:57.

Germany saw France to reach this stage and in doing so became the

:02:58.:03:03.

first team in history to reach four consecutive World Cup semifinals.

:03:04.:03:05.

However, they have lost the last two. Two huge footballing nations

:03:06.:03:14.

competing tonight, Alan. We have seen so many thrills and

:03:15.:03:17.

excitement, but have we seen a great team? No, I don't think we have.

:03:18.:03:24.

Usually that would be to the detriment of the tournament.

Usually that would be to the of the remaining sides conceivably

consecutive semifinals, quite some achievement, but they haven't gone

on to win. Other questions about the Germans? Everyone keeps telling me

:04:28.:04:33.

that we could do at the German way or the Spanish way. It is a nice

:04:34.:04:39.

problem to have! They are a decent team. They have a great goal-scorer

them because of what you just mentioned, but I think they can

handle that. They have a mental toughness. Who do you think will win

:05:14.:05:17.

Germany have played more World Cup matches than any other side, but,

:05:18.:05:22.

incredibly, they have only met once before in the turbulent, the final

:05:23.:05:25.

of 2002 when Ronaldo laid Brazil and Germany coming nights,

:05:26.:05:40.

for the first time ever meeting in the World Cup, and what a fitting

:05:41.:05:44.

arena. You have to win when you play for

:05:45.:05:51.

Brazil, always. There he is, the leader at the moment. I was really

:05:52.:06:02.

scared. I have that bad experience. I had to transform that. It was my

:06:03.:06:10.

challenge. I did that. I lost the World Cup in 1998. After my injury,

:06:11.:06:20.

that was my inspiration. COMMENTATOR: Rinaldo! It is Ronaldo!

:06:21.:06:27.

I was in Japan, it was fantastic to see him coming back. I was very

:06:28.:06:33.

happy for him. Rinaldo makes up for 1998 by a getting the rebound.

:06:34.:06:46.

It was the best experience you could have in sport.

:06:47.:06:53.

After the finals, we celebrated for three days. Nobody was sleeping!

:06:54.:07:04.

There were more than 10 million people on the streets! They wanted

:07:05.:07:13.

to party! COMMENTATOR: to Wobegon figure of four years ago is now a

:07:14.:07:20.

World Cup winner! If you think, you have 15 World Cups, I think you come

:07:21.:07:31.

back on top of the world. Brazil win it for the fifth time.

:07:32.:07:40.

There is the team in the tunnel. They all want to emulate the class

:07:41.:07:48.

of 2002. Amongst them cheering them on today is a man who played in that

:07:49.:08:00.

final. Well, be ready for another

:08:01.:08:05.

roller-coaster of emotions! Ginny Newell is with us. What is the

:08:06.:08:12.

difference between the team of 2002 and this team?

:08:13.:08:17.

There were more experienced guys in 2002. In this grip, I feel they are

:08:18.:08:31.

strong as a unit. Even without Neymar, they can be strong as a

:08:32.:08:35.

unit. What worries you most about this Germany side? Giving them too

:08:36.:08:42.

much space to play. We have to look at the midfield. We need to protect

:08:43.:08:50.

our defence. If you give them too much space to create, they will

:08:51.:08:55.

cause problems. You have actually been in the camp, talking to Big

:08:56.:09:01.

Phil Scolari. What is the atmosphere like the?

:09:02.:09:03.

been in the camp, talking to Big Phil Scolari. What is the First of

:09:04.:09:08.

all, he asked me for my boots! I said, I am too old! I felt a very

:09:09.:09:16.

light atmosphere. I felt psychologically they are very

:09:17.:09:22.

strong. It makes me believe that Brazil can get to the final. Enjoy

:09:23.:09:34.

it. What an epic semifinal we have! I think you might get a game upfront

:09:35.:09:39.

if he was a few years younger, he probably would. In 2002, Big Phil

:09:40.:09:47.

Scolari led the team to World Cup victory. Whatever happens, the big

:09:48.:09:54.

65-year-old will always have a special place in the hearts of

:09:55.:09:59.

Brazilians. Tough, blunt, unyielding, not much

:10:00.:10:06.

samba about Felipe Scolari. He has his roots firmly planted in one of

:10:07.:10:12.

the coldest southern states of Brazil. An entirely different

:10:13.:10:18.

Brazil. Felipe Scolari is the third consecutive sub bass of the national

:10:19.:10:23.

team. Some say this is responsible for the change in style.

:10:24.:10:30.

I thought he was going to crack last week, but I feel he has regained his

:10:31.:10:38.

control. He is emotive, the sentimental patriarch of the

:10:39.:10:42.

family, the broad back father figure who walked into the job a year and a

:10:43.:10:47.

half ago announcing that Brazil would win its own World Cup. He has

:10:48.:10:52.

seen those things, but maybe he and his men were not adequately prepared

:10:53.:10:57.

for this. From the start, it almost seemed too much. Many tears have

:10:58.:11:03.

slowed, and many opinions. For many people, the World Cup is finished

:11:04.:11:09.

because we have no Neymar. Our expression is Neymar plus ten, so

:11:10.:11:19.

Neymar and ten other players. I think people are getting prepared

:11:20.:11:24.

for a bad result. The players have met with a psychologist to deal with

:11:25.:11:29.

losing their figurehead. The fans will wear a Neymar masks, but Felipe

:11:30.:11:36.

Scolari must come up with a master plan. Now, where did he leave it?

:11:37.:11:52.

He is not the best, but then these kind of psychological games, he is

:11:53.:12:03.

amazing. I could imagine him talking about Ayrton Senna at some point,

:12:04.:12:08.

trying to rally the troops. He has got to hope it works, or a ride of

:12:09.:12:13.

this man's life will come to an end to night.

:12:14.:12:20.

Big Phil Scolari, he seems like a really likeable guy. We have had

:12:21.:12:29.

conversations about him. What did Rinaldo say about him? He said that

:12:30.:12:35.

he creates a family environment, he becomes a father figure. That puts

:12:36.:12:41.

the players at ease. If you are at ease with everything, you can

:12:42.:12:45.

perform better. He lays that platform. It hits all the emotion of

:12:46.:12:57.

the players. He is very loyal to his players. He has a group there, and

:12:58.:13:03.

he sticks by them. He was very close to managing England at one stage.

:13:04.:13:11.

Brian Barwick went to him before the World Cup and asked him to be named

:13:12.:13:14.

manager before that he said he couldn't, because what would happen

:13:15.:13:21.

if England played Portugal, and, as it turned out, they did. I like him.

:13:22.:13:29.

He is pragmatic, single-minded, immune to criticism and Stanton

:13:30.:13:33.

faults by his results. The Brazil fans are making their presence felt

:13:34.:13:40.

in the stadium. Let's have a look at them!

:13:41.:13:44.

Dante has come into cover for Thiago Silva. David Luiz will move over to

:13:45.:14:02.

the right. Luiz Gustavo returns after a one match ban. Bernard has

:14:03.:14:08.

been given the responsibility of replacing the injured Neymar. Oscar

:14:09.:14:16.

will be asked to provide the main creative spark. Fred is the leading

:14:17.:14:22.

scorer for Brazil in the absence of Neymar, with 18 international

:14:23.:14:29.

goals. David Luiz divides opinion. All these questions about him. I

:14:30.:14:34.

think his concentration levels have to be at 100%. In this tournament he

:14:35.:14:38.

has done all right. Made some timely interceptions. He reads the game

:14:39.:14:43.

well. I don't know what this is about!

:14:44.:14:49.

ALAN HANSEN: He is the ball. Reads it early. Gets in

:14:50.:14:57.

front. Good block. This is a free-kick. Magnificent

:14:58.:15:02.

front. Good block. This is a in the Premier League last season.

:15:03.:15:06.

This is what I talk about - concentration levels - and there is

:15:07.:15:10.

a mistake in there. Against Cameroon, the equalising goal.

:15:11.:15:14.

Thiago Silva doesn't do particularly well at the near post.

:15:15.:15:16.

Thiago Silva doesn't do particularly off and, as I say, at this stage of

:15:17.:15:21.

the competition, one mistake like this and it could be fatal. Poor

:15:22.:15:26.

position. Body shape all over the place. You always feel there is a

:15:27.:15:28.

mistake If Germany get the opportunity, they

:15:29.:15:53.

will not let too many get away from them. They have runners going in

:15:54.:15:57.

behind all the time. As soon as Ozil turns, they are dangerous. Has he

:15:58.:16:03.

got that in him, Rio? He has to. He's done quite well. His defensive

:16:04.:16:07.

head has been on in this tournament. This is too easy. Brazil have to be

:16:08.:16:10.

better and much more compact in This is too easy. Brazil have to be

:16:11.:16:15.

game today. The Germans will turn and play the ball into the danger

:16:16.:16:19.

areas. They have Klose up front and Muller. That is too much space for a

:16:20.:16:23.

midfielder, to turn and face you up. Again, turn and face you up. He is

:16:24.:16:27.

the one dictating to you where he is going to go. I don't think he has a

:16:28.:16:35.

bit of communication in him! This is a massive test for him. Germany are

:16:36.:16:41.

unbeaten in their last 16 internationals. This will be their

:16:42.:16:46.

12th World Cup semifinal but many in the squad still carry the scars of

:16:47.:16:49.

losing in 2006 and 2010. There is something quite unfamiliar

:16:50.:17:03.

about Germany. History tells us they are a team for the big moments.

:17:04.:17:08.

Squeezing every ounce out of their considerable talent. Three World

:17:09.:17:14.

Cups, three European Championships. They are our continent's footballing

:17:15.:17:19.

superpower. This Germany are different. The football is dashing,

:17:20.:17:24.

daring. The team are young and adventurous.

:17:25.:17:28.

COMMENTARY: Thomas Muller with a beauty.

:17:29.:17:31.

Where is that silverware the nation has become used to? Two World Cup

:17:32.:17:37.

semifinals in a row - lost. Again, in the Euros to Italy. It is all a

:17:38.:17:40.

bit unGerman. COMMENTARY: Once again, it is a step

:17:41.:17:47.

too far. The third semifinal in a row. It was

:17:48.:17:55.

a shame against Italy. Now, they have to deliver. We are waiting for

:17:56.:17:59.

the World Cup title for 24 years. It's time. Time is running out for

:18:00.:18:04.

Germany's golden group. It seems like pressure to succeed has seen

:18:05.:18:09.

Joachim Low's side become more pragmatic in Brazil. The Germans are

:18:10.:18:12.

more German. We have really got used to beautiful

:18:13.:18:37.

football. Now, the team is more focussed, a little bit more

:18:38.:18:42.

disciplined. If he win in the final 1-0, there is a lot of hurry and it

:18:43.:18:48.

is all about winning the title. It is the same team that beat the

:18:49.:19:10.

French in the quarterfinals. Manuel Neuer is in goal. Philipp Lahm

:19:11.:19:16.

continues at right back with the centre-back pairing of Hummels and

:19:17.:19:19.

Boateng keeping out Arsenal's Mertesacker once again. The midfield

:19:20.:19:24.

is anchored by Schweinsteiger and Khedira. Thomas Muller has scored

:19:25.:19:29.

four of Germany's ten tournament goals. He and Kroos have two assists

:19:30.:19:35.

each. 36-year-old striker Miroslav Klose remains one goal away from

:19:36.:19:38.

setting a new World Cup Finals record of 16, but he's yet to score

:19:39.:19:44.

in a semifinal. Over the years, Alan, you have picked out a few

:19:45.:19:48.

German defenders to have a pop at. You have a new target? No, no!

:19:49.:19:55.

Against the French, they still played a high line, but not as high

:19:56.:20:02.

as they did against Algeria. They were more solid with Hummels in

:20:03.:20:05.

there. They are up the pitch a bit. There is space behind. It ain't the

:20:06.:20:09.

best position you have ever seen. The body shape is right. He can get

:20:10.:20:12.

back and chase. He does enough to get back in there. The ball comes in

:20:13.:20:23.

the box. Everything was a bit bitty. That is good. Same sort of thing

:20:24.:20:30.

here. He mops up. Gets rid of it. This time, it is played over the

:20:31.:20:35.

top. The French exploit the space. He gets into a decent position here.

:20:36.:20:40.

I suppose this was the tackle of the game. It is a fantastic block.

:20:41.:20:45.

Wonderful block. Then, of course, the goal. He's a better player than

:20:46.:20:54.

Mertesacker. If I was to say who was going to win this game, it would

:20:55.:20:59.

depend on who defends the better. I think he is fantastic in the box. It

:21:00.:21:03.

is when he is outside the box, his mobility lets him down. If you can

:21:04.:21:06.

move him about, you will have chances. In the box, he is very

:21:07.:21:15.

good. Have Brazil got the players to exploit that weakness without

:21:16.:21:21.

Neymar? Home advantage will play a big part for them. They will be

:21:22.:21:24.

playing for him. They will be playing to get to the final for

:21:25.:21:28.

their captain, Thiago Silva. They have a togetherness. They have got a

:21:29.:21:33.

wily old manager who has been there and done it before and put that

:21:34.:21:37.

together, that will be a huge help. A lack of discipline about this

:21:38.:21:40.

Brazilian side at times? Very much so. Fernandinho has been very lucky

:21:41.:21:52.

at times to stay on the pitch. They spoil it in the middle of the park.

:21:53.:21:57.

They commit fouls high up the pitch. They stop the rhythm. They have

:21:58.:22:01.

committed more fouls in the tournament than anyone else. A tough

:22:02.:22:05.

call this. Who will win? Brazil. Long night - Brazil. Rio? The

:22:06.:22:11.

Germans. Ooh! Playing for a place in the World Cup Final, Brazil play

:22:12.:22:21.

Germany. Our commentators, Steve Wilson and Martin Keown.

:22:22.:22:24.

STEVE WILSON: Brazil, five-times World Cup

:22:25.:22:36.

winners, twice a runner-up. Germany, three times World Cup winners, four

:22:37.:22:40.

times a runner-up. They have been the best in the world at playing the

:22:41.:22:45.

world game. This is a super heavyweight semifinal, but in this

:22:46.:22:49.

wonderful arena. I will stop talking because first you will hear the

:22:50.:22:56.

German anthem. And then Brazil's. As you know, when the music stops, the

:22:57.:22:58.

singing doesn't! # Ouviram do Ipiranga as

:22:59.:23:03.

margens placidas # De um povo heroico o

:23:04.:23:12.

brado retumbante, Brazil's a cappella anthem becoming

:23:13.:24:08.

one of the sights and sounds of sport. The Number 10 Neymar shirt

:24:09.:24:14.

being held aloft. # Ouviram do Ipiranga as

:24:15.:24:20.

margens placidas # De um povo heroico o

:24:21.:24:41.

brado retumbante, # E o sol da Liberdade,

:24:42.:24:45.

em raios fulgidos, # Brilhou no ceu da Patria

:24:46.:24:49.

nesse instante. # Conseguimos conquistar

:24:50.:24:53.

com braco forte, # Desafia o nosso peito

:24:54.:25:07.

a propria morte! # Brasil, um sonho intenso,

:25:08.:25:18.

um raio v?vido, # De amor e de esperanca

:25:19.:25:32.

a terra desce, # Se em teu formoso ceu, risonho

:25:33.:25:35.

e limpido, # Gigante pela propria natureza,

:25:36.:25:39.

Es belo, es forte, impavido colosso, What about the ball boys and girls?

:25:40.:25:47.

essa grandeza. What about the ball boys and girls?

:25:48.:26:01.

The Estadio Mineirao is a long way from being the most beautiful of the

:26:02.:26:08.

12 World Cup venues. It lacks the grandeur of Brasilia. It is a big,

:26:09.:26:14.

old bearpit of a ground. But utterly thrilling and spectacularly noisy.

:26:15.:26:17.

Brazil are without their superstar and captain. The last time they

:26:18.:26:23.

started a game without Neymar and Thiago Silva was the quarterfinal of

:26:24.:26:26.

the last World Cup when they lost to the Dutch. Neymar had started every

:26:27.:26:32.

game since that defeat, a Brazilian record equalling 38 consecutive

:26:33.:26:35.

matches and scoring 27. Brazil tried to get Thiago Silva's second yellow

:26:36.:26:42.

overturned but failed. Dante is in for him. Luiz Gustavo for Paulinho.

:26:43.:26:45.

Bernard is in for Neymar. The captain for the ninth time of

:26:46.:27:01.

his country is David Luiz in the absence of Thiago Silva. The referee

:27:02.:27:08.

is Marco Rodr?guez of Mexico. His first game since the Uruguay-Italy

:27:09.:27:14.

match in Natal. A vote of confidence in him from FIFA after he missed the

:27:15.:27:21.

Suarez bite. His nickname is "Dracula". Germany have reached the

:27:22.:27:26.

semifinal or better in 12 of the last 16 World Cups. They have never

:27:27.:27:31.

beaten Brazil in a competitive game. One World Cup and two Confederation

:27:32.:27:49.

Cup defeats. As you know by now, Miroslav Klose is on 15 goals, equal

:27:50.:27:54.

with Ronaldo. He breaks one record already - becoming the first player

:27:55.:27:57.

to play in four World Cup semifinals. Fantastic atmosphere

:27:58.:28:09.

inside the Estadio Mineirao. Scolari's third World Cup semifinal.

:28:10.:28:14.

His second with Brazil. One with Portugal. Germany, the nearly men of

:28:15.:28:21.

the last decade of world football. And Germany in their change strip,

:28:22.:28:27.

the red and black hoops, the Flamenco kit, will get the game

:28:28.:28:31.

under way. They will kick from right to left in the first half. We just

:28:32.:28:44.

wait and pause for the clock to tick around. Martin Keown, what do you

:28:45.:28:49.

think? MARTIN KEOWN: It is going to be

:28:50.:28:52.

fascinating. David Luiz MARTIN KEOWN: It is going to be

:28:53.:28:56.

looking forward to this. He is loving it. What an arena. What an

:28:57.:29:08.

occasion. Who is heading to the Maracana? Brazil are yet to play in

:29:09.:29:14.

Rio. They must be hungry there to welcome their team. Will they get

:29:15.:29:17.

the opportunity or will it be Germany through to the final again?

:29:18.:29:24.

A horribly long pause for the players to sit and dwell and the man

:29:25.:29:29.

on the near touchline in a FIFA blazer has his arm raised and no-one

:29:30.:29:32.

can do anything before the arm drops and drop it does! Germany get the

:29:33.:29:38.

first of the 2014 World Cup semifinals under way.

:29:39.:30:14.

Has it gone out of play? Yes, it has, it is a Brazilian corner. Yes,

:30:15.:30:21.

Bastian Schweinsteiger coming across. I am not sure that was

:30:22.:30:32.

completely out. No, neither am I. Oscar to take the corner.

:30:33.:30:42.

Directory just having a word with Fernandinho and he is trying to

:30:43.:30:51.

stand on the toes of one of the defenders.

:30:52.:31:08.

Dante and Luiz Gustavo both play their football in Germany. It is

:31:09.:31:44.

important that Luiz Gustavo is back today. When the Brazilians arrived

:31:45.:31:51.

at the Estadio Mineirao today they were all wearing baseball caps

:31:52.:31:58.

saying come on, Neymar! That shot did not trouble Gerd Muller. Marcelo

:31:59.:32:07.

is really in the mood today. He is playing very high up the pitch.

:32:08.:32:14.

There was some contact their on Luiz Gustavo by Bastian Schweinsteiger.

:32:15.:32:16.

Yes, the referee let it go. There are questions about this

:32:17.:32:40.

Brazilian team's composure under pressure. That is a wonderful ball

:32:41.:32:49.

to Hulk! Gerd Muller was there. An incredible ball by David Luiz.

:32:50.:33:02.

That was a good moment for Dante. Pressure on him. If Germany had

:33:03.:33:14.

broken their, they could've played at wide to Thomas Muller on the

:33:15.:33:19.

right-hand side. I hope we see that again, to see the position that

:33:20.:33:21.

Thomas Muller was in. I think Maicon is a weakness on this

:33:22.:33:35.

right-hand side. It will be interesting to see if they test

:33:36.:33:38.

him. He looked rusty in the last match against Colombia. Maicon puts

:33:39.:33:46.

the ball out of play. Brazil have to retreat again for another German

:33:47.:33:47.

through. O works very hard.

:33:48.:34:25.

very hard. It is interesting that Joachim Low has gone with the same

:34:26.:34:30.

team that he had last time out. I am not sure how long Miroslav Klose

:34:31.:34:37.

will last for. Miroslav Klose played for just over 60 minutes in the last

:34:38.:34:39.

game. He is 36 now. Given away carelessly by

:34:40.:35:02.

Fernandinho. Brazil are not looking very

:35:03.:35:15.

comfortable in possession, they don't look like the sale at times.

:35:16.:35:21.

They have to be brave, deal with the pressure. Their best 45 minutes was

:35:22.:35:30.

in the first half against the Colombians, but they panicked in the

:35:31.:35:32.

second half. Good clearance by Mats Hummels. He

:35:33.:35:52.

is one of those who has recovered from a sickness. Quite a lot of

:35:53.:36:01.

people who have been travelling a lot around Brazil in the last couple

:36:02.:36:03.

of months, coming from the cold climates in the South, particularly

:36:04.:36:10.

Sao Paulo where it is wet, then coming up north to the humidity,

:36:11.:36:15.

quite a lot of people have got the flu. It is about 70 degrees here

:36:16.:36:20.

tonight. Thomas Muller is trying to find a

:36:21.:36:54.

way round Dante. It hit Oscar. Lost by Jerome Boateng. The free kick

:36:55.:36:57.

goes the way of Brazil. by Jerome Boateng. The free kick

:36:58.:36:59.

stroke of fortune! Marcelo on by Jerome Boateng. The free kick

:37:00.:37:06.

left-hand side, he just leaves so much space them run into. They get

:37:07.:37:09.

lucky here. It hits Miroslav Klose much space them run into. They get

:37:10.:37:18.

on the back. That is why the free kick was given eventually. Their

:37:19.:37:25.

full-backs are pushing up so high, they are leaving huge spaces in

:37:26.:37:26.

behind. Well cut out by Benedikt Howedes. It

:37:27.:37:40.

has been a good flowing started the game. Bastian Schweinsteiger in the

:37:41.:37:45.

right place for Germany. Good challenge by Marcelo. It needed

:37:46.:38:10.

to be, too. He is looking for a free kick, and he got one. Yes, Marcelo

:38:11.:38:21.

is doing well. Fair play to him. What an open game! What a promising

:38:22.:38:27.

start to the game, from the standpoint of a neutral! Basically,

:38:28.:38:33.

both teams are saying, we are going to attack better than you are! Luiz

:38:34.:38:39.

Gustavo is going very deep when they have possession at the back. Here is

:38:40.:38:49.

David Luiz. Just a little nudge on him by Miroslav Klose. I think he is

:38:50.:39:01.

David Luiz. Just a little nudge on liberties in possession, or I will

:39:02.:39:02.

get it off you. Miroslav Klose is in the middle. The

:39:03.:39:31.

first German corner of the game. Sami Khedira doing well, breaking

:39:32.:39:36.

into that channel. Plenty of mistakes in the first ten minutes! A

:39:37.:39:42.

slight nervousness from Brazil, when they are trying to Mike these

:39:43.:39:43.

attacks from the back. it is in! Germany lead! Thomas

:39:44.:40:04.

Muller from the corner puts Germany in front! His fifth goal of this

:40:05.:40:10.

World Cup! Who picked him up? Nobody! It is a ball that ends up at

:40:11.:40:19.

the far post. He is totally unmarked. Unbelievable! To get that

:40:20.:40:24.

kind of space at this level. It is a decent ball. He makes it look easy,

:40:25.:40:32.

but it is about concentration. He evades everyone. Look at that, a tap

:40:33.:40:41.

in! The Golden Boot winner from four years ago, Thomas Muller, has put

:40:42.:40:47.

Germany in front in the 2014 semifinal.

:40:48.:41:01.

character. We will see what they are made of now!

:41:02.:41:19.

He has matched his tally of four years ago in South Africa. It will

:41:20.:41:25.

not win the Golden Boot this time around, but it puts him within one

:41:26.:41:33.

of James Rodriguez. Bad touch, wasn't it? If Brazil are looking for

:41:34.:41:43.

leaders, there is no captain, no Thiago Silva. If they are looking

:41:44.:41:46.

for inspiration, no Neymar. Many people have said it, that this

:41:47.:42:08.

Brazilian team can be beaten. The will of the nation might not been

:42:09.:42:13.

beatable, but the team was. Well, we are just looking at leadership,

:42:14.:42:19.

commanding your own box. I would be embarrassed if I gave my opposite

:42:20.:42:21.

number at that kind of room. Was there an elbow there on the

:42:22.:42:44.

Miroslav Klose? Thomas Muller taken out of it by

:42:45.:43:07.

Marcelo. Marcelo knows, he needs to take a out -- him out. David Luiz

:43:08.:43:23.

goes on a fantastic run, you have to say. Hulk should have done better

:43:24.:43:25.

with the cross, though. They will be looking to David Luiz

:43:26.:43:40.

for inspiration and leadership. Germany are stopping them getting

:43:41.:43:48.

any attacks going. Sami Khedira is coming out to help.

:43:49.:44:12.

He has been very mixed in this tournament, Hulk.

:44:13.:44:24.

Scolari keeps sticking with his team. Free-kick is taken by Kroos to

:44:25.:44:31.

Khedira. Blocked off by the Brazilian wide

:44:32.:44:43.

man. Free-kick to Germany. Germany in the ascendancy. They are. They

:44:44.:44:46.

are taking the sting out of things. They will boss possession.

:44:47.:44:56.

A long way to go. Kroos with this free-kick. The early signs aren't

:44:57.:45:03.

good for Brazil. Ozil trying to get underneath it.

:45:04.:45:11.

Again, he hasn't got the pass into midfield.

:45:12.:45:21.

They fell behind in the first match of this World Cup, you will

:45:22.:45:25.

remember, with that own goal Bernard, good pressure. He is like a

:45:26.:45:39.

little terrier. Oscar. He has come very deep to get

:45:40.:45:47.

little Big pressure Oscar. He has come very deep to get

:45:48.:46:06.

it. Into Fernandinho. Fernandinho looking for Fred. Hummels might have

:46:07.:46:11.

got a touch on that. Oscar finds Hulk. Marcelo trying to get in

:46:12.:46:15.

behind Lahm. Lahm with the challenge. Kornler kick. -- corner

:46:16.:46:22.

kick. Beautiful challenge. I think the Germans are not happy because

:46:23.:46:27.

they thought Marcelo was taking a dive. Lahm's challenge looked

:46:28.:46:32.

inch-perfect from here. The referee instantly indicated a corner and no

:46:33.:46:36.

more. Boateng's reaction was all about the way Marcelo hit the

:46:37.:46:41.

ground. Yeah. It is boiling over a little bit.

:46:42.:46:50.

Good play from Brazil. Marcelo trying to get behind him. Look at

:46:51.:46:56.

that for a perfectly-timed challenge. Brilliant challenge.

:46:57.:47:01.

that for a perfectly-timed Brilliant challenge from a brilliant

:47:02.:47:02.

player. Marcelo trying to get Oscar in

:47:03.:47:05.

the near post. That was really poor. Marcelo trying to get Oscar in

:47:06.:47:15.

behind. Oscar did well to get any ball in.

:47:16.:47:23.

Dante won the header. Oscar winning the header.

:47:24.:47:48.

Bernard goes over, Well cut out by Maicon.

:47:49.:48:01.

Bernard goes over, playing advantage.

:48:02.:48:11.

Germany are so dangerous on the break. Brazil are so open.

:48:12.:48:25.

Oscar has won a free-kick. He is putting in a shift. It is breaking

:48:26.:48:31.

down far too often on the Brazil left-hand side. Marcelo giving it

:48:32.:48:36.

away. Hulk has to improve that ball retention. Credit the Germans the

:48:37.:48:41.

way they are closing down. It was like a knife through butter. Their

:48:42.:48:43.

midfield is exceptional. 66 competitive home matches Brazil

:48:44.:49:06.

since they were last beaten on home soil in a match that mattered, back

:49:07.:49:13.

in 1975, Copa America semifinal, Peru beat them on this ground.

:49:14.:49:34.

Ozil is saying he was fouled. He was pulled back. I thought he was going

:49:35.:49:40.

to do a Gareth Bale then! Klose needed a bit of help there.

:49:41.:49:57.

Look at Julio Cesar, he has no option. Klose should give it to

:49:58.:50:02.

Muller. He is running free on the right-hand side in acres of space.

:50:03.:50:12.

Germany are in front in this semifinal.

:50:13.:50:37.

No real problem for Julio Cesar there. Nothing on it. Don't

:50:38.:50:45.

underestimate Khedira in that move. He is a beautiful footballer.

:50:46.:50:50.

Effortlessly through the midfield. Loves arriving in the final third.

:50:51.:51:07.

There was only Klose in the middle. Ozil was doing his best to get

:51:08.:51:27.

there. He covered 57 kilometres before tonight's match. He's going

:51:28.:51:29.

to break some records because before tonight's match. He's going

:51:30.:51:34.

got oceans of space to run into. It's found its

:51:35.:51:37.

got oceans of space to run into. Fernandinho to Toni Kroos. Kroos,

:51:38.:51:40.

back into Muller. Klose! Brilliant save. Klose scores. Historic goal.

:51:41.:51:49.

Germany 2, Brazil 0! Miroslav Klose is the all-time World Cup record

:51:50.:51:54.

goalscorer. Brazil have a mountain to climb in their own back yard

:51:55.:52:00.

against Germany! They are two down inside 23 minutes. Stunning! They

:52:01.:52:07.

are punishing them. They look lost, the Brazilians. Down the right-hand

:52:08.:52:11.

side again. They look really strong. It comes central. They work it

:52:12.:52:17.

nicely. Great little lay-off. Klose gets another chance. He ain't going

:52:18.:52:26.

to miss that one. It is so simple. Puts him in the record books. That's

:52:27.:52:35.

Klose's range. From 6 to 12 yards. 2-0 to Germany. 16 goals in World

:52:36.:52:44.

Cup Finals. He eclipses the phenomenon, as Brazil call him, that

:52:45.:52:49.

was Ronaldo. Tears are not far away already. The players look stunned.

:52:50.:52:58.

David Luiz over the top. Bernard trying to get on to it.

:52:59.:53:03.

Neuer is a man mountain. How do Brazil shake-up the unshakeable? At

:53:04.:53:12.

the moment, you look at what he's done in that midfield, it is not

:53:13.:53:17.

working. Germany are completely controlling the match in the middle.

:53:18.:53:24.

Mesut Ozil. Lahm in all kinds of space. Lahm, Muller. Could be

:53:25.:53:32.

embarrassing. It is three! Toni Kroos! Brazil have fallen apart

:53:33.:53:40.

inside 25 minutes! Germany 3, Brazil 0. Again, down that right-hand side.

:53:41.:53:49.

What a finish this is off his left foot. He smashes it in. Quality

:53:50.:54:00.

finish. A dizzying 25 minutes from Germany. Brazil are nonplussed. That

:54:01.:54:09.

is as good a finish as you will see. Again, down the right-hand side.

:54:10.:54:14.

Oceans of space. In behind Marcelo. What a finish that is. Goes like an

:54:15.:54:23.

arrow. It is lucky. But look at the fin ishl at the end of it. -- finish

:54:24.:54:30.

at the end of it. The dreams of 200 Brazilians look like mere fantasy.

:54:31.:54:36.

Blown apart and it is getting embarrassing. It could be four. It's

:54:37.:54:42.

turned square, it's 4-0 to Germany! After 25 minutes. Fernandinho caught

:54:43.:54:50.

in possession. Brazil are being humiliated, humbled and taken apart.

:54:51.:54:57.

Their supporters simply cannot believe what they have seen. It is

:54:58.:55:01.

as if without their two main players, it is like pulling the plug

:55:02.:55:09.

out of the bath. It's unbelievable! So unprofessional. Khedira, look at

:55:10.:55:14.

this. Gives it him back. Nice side-foot finish. It is

:55:15.:55:23.

embarrassing. The dream, the fantasy is well and truly dead. Germany 4,

:55:24.:55:36.

Brazil 0. In 25 minutes. It is about restoring pride now.

:55:37.:55:46.

Stunned into near silence in Belo Horizonte. We were talking about the

:55:47.:55:52.

pressure, is it too much, the expectation of the public? Really,

:55:53.:55:54.

they haven't turned up. expectation of the public? Really,

:55:55.:55:59.

been different class, of course. You have to have that strong backbone

:56:00.:56:05.

and it is missing from this team. Here is Luiz Gustavo for Brazil. How

:56:06.:56:11.

do they find some composure now? Who wants the ball? You want to look at

:56:12.:56:14.

those players. Of course, Neymar is out. Who is the next player that

:56:15.:56:21.

wants to take that mantle on? Fernandinho,

:56:22.:56:23.

wants to take that mantle on? 30 yards from his own goal!

:56:24.:56:30.

Julio Cesar, forward, Philipp Lahm. It's almost got to the stage where

:56:31.:56:36.

Germany have stopped celebrating their goals. I don't think they can

:56:37.:56:38.

believe how easy it is. Four goals in 15 minutes. FOUR goals

:56:39.:57:28.

in 15 minutes for Germany. Incredible. Looking here, whether

:57:29.:57:37.

this is a foul. He takes a dive. No contact there. Hulk's

:57:38.:57:42.

this is a foul. He takes a dive. No like the old fisherman's fly! I'm

:57:43.:57:45.

sure the boys at half-time will have plenty to say. Scolari's team raised

:57:46.:57:50.

a few eyebrows here, Willian on the bench, Ramires, lots of high-energy

:57:51.:57:55.

a few eyebrows here, Willian on the players. If Scolari could

:57:56.:57:57.

a few eyebrows here, Willian on the again, I'm sure he would pick a

:57:58.:57:59.

different team. Ozil. Khedira! 5-0! 5-0! Absolute

:58:00.:58:35.

humiliation. That one is down to David Luiz. Absolutely no

:58:36.:58:37.

discipline, he goes David Luiz. Absolutely no

:58:38.:58:41.

Leaves a great big hole to run into. They get punished again. Brazil

:58:42.:58:49.

scored their first in the 11th minute, the second in the 23rd, the

:58:50.:58:54.

third in the 24th, their fourth in the 26th and their fifth in the

:58:55.:58:58.

29th. Martin, they have scored four goals in six minutes. It is truly

:58:59.:59:03.

unbelievable. They are so patient. They wait for that chance and then

:59:04.:59:10.

it is a tap-in. They have been gifted these opportunities.

:59:11.:59:25.

has gone. Blown to smithereens, by the way! Just incredible! Sami

:59:26.:59:36.

Khedira is having a field If you have joined us slip, the

:59:37.:00:03.

scoreboard is correct! -- joined as late.

:00:04.:00:12.

It is getting to the stage where Joachim Low might think about

:00:13.:00:19.

resting people for the final. Brazil have been shambolic from the

:00:20.:00:39.

moment they fell behind. You can't put it down to just two top players

:00:40.:00:44.

not playing, all teams have to do without their top layers at some

:00:45.:00:45.

point. There he is in the standard. without their top layers at some

:00:46.:00:56.

Thiago Silva. -- in the stand. Bodies all over the place!

:00:57.:01:08.

Deflection! They have a corner. Bodies all over the place!

:01:09.:01:20.

are claiming hand ball. They are so bad defensively. It is like a

:01:21.:01:24.

testimonial game here! Brazil cannot get the ball. There is

:01:25.:01:53.

so much more structured to the German side, the way they pass the

:01:54.:01:58.

ball. Look at Bastian Schweinsteiger, making himself

:01:59.:02:04.

available, options everywhere. There is a structure to their team. I

:02:05.:02:10.

think the emotion of the competition has got them through, but without

:02:11.:02:22.

those players, they will not go on. Thomas Muller complaining to the

:02:23.:02:25.

referee, but he is having none of it. Tomorrow night on BBC One at

:02:26.:02:35.

11:45pm, highlights of Argentina against the Netherlands. On a

:02:36.:02:42.

Sunday, the final itself, on BBC One from seven p.m.. Germany are,

:02:43.:02:47.

basically, already there. Toni Kroos is a beautiful passer of

:02:48.:03:15.

the ball. Philipp Lahm is a willing runner. Germany have been efficient,

:03:16.:03:23.

unselfish. Brazil have been terrible. They could not have

:03:24.:03:32.

believed it would have been this easy.

:03:33.:03:47.

He could have gone wide there. Thomas Muller is giving him a very

:03:48.:03:56.

heavy look there. It is almost as if it has become so easy they are

:03:57.:04:00.

ignoring the easy pass. They did that time and time again.

:04:01.:04:31.

David Luiz is forced to send that long because nobody is showing in

:04:32.:04:32.

midfield. Hulk was offside. Germany are such a

:04:33.:05:10.

well oiled machine. It is a stroll in the park for them. Has Manuel

:05:11.:05:18.

Neuer got his knees dirty yet? He has made one catch early on, when it

:05:19.:05:24.

was still a game. It was a game for ten minutes!

:05:25.:05:31.

The biggest ever margin of thick jury in a World Cup match is nine

:05:32.:05:46.

goals. It is almost beyond belief that we are talking about it, but

:05:47.:05:53.

that it is 5-0 after 30 minutes, you do have to start to talk about it!

:05:54.:06:10.

No European team has ever won a World Cup on South American soil.

:06:11.:06:27.

Germany to not look do not look.

:06:28.:06:46.

A desperate lunge by Luiz Gustavo. He just catches him. Such good

:06:47.:06:54.

movement from the edge of their block is, they are all making runs

:06:55.:07:00.

from deep, sometimes it is Sami Khedira, other times it is Miroslav

:07:01.:07:04.

Klose. Brazil are not playing together as a unit at all. They are

:07:05.:07:14.

shell-shocked, look at them. Who fancies this? All of them!

:07:15.:07:26.

Bastian Schweinsteiger looks very interested. It is Mesut Ozil to over

:07:27.:07:37.

the top of the crossbar. Mesut Ozil might not get the next one!

:07:38.:07:44.

the top of the crossbar. Mesut Ozil probably the worst thing they have

:07:45.:07:44.

done! This is a team that has not lost at

:07:45.:08:36.

performance. home in a competitive fixture in

:08:37.:08:52.

nearly 40 years! They haven't lost at home in any fixture in nearly 12

:08:53.:08:57.

years! It is hard to believe what we are seeing.

:08:58.:09:10.

Sami Khedira becomes the winger. It works well.

:09:11.:09:25.

Germany structure it so nicely. They are free in their movements. They

:09:26.:09:34.

are comfortable in possession, as well.

:09:35.:09:47.

Miroslav Klose's appetite to try and win it back is impressive.

:09:48.:10:10.

Great tackle by Philipp Lahm. See high he stays on his feet

:10:11.:10:17.

beautifully? He just takes his chance to make the tackle.

:10:18.:10:41.

It looks as if Germany have learned some lessons, maybe the hard way, by

:10:42.:10:54.

losing semifinals two of them. -- too many times.

:10:55.:11:01.

You fear for Brazil every time Germany get the ball. Germany can

:11:02.:11:04.

counterattack so quickly. That was a bit overconfident by Toni

:11:05.:11:22.

Kroos. We have not seen much from Fred in

:11:23.:11:45.

this tournament. I can't believe he will be out for the second half.

:11:46.:11:52.

Germany doing simple things well, Brazil making this simple look

:11:53.:11:56.

unfathomably difficult at times. There are a few German players out

:11:57.:12:22.

there who have tasted it defeat in the European Championships and the

:12:23.:12:23.

World Cup. Free kick to Brazil for a high note.

:12:24.:12:54.

Brazil can salvage some time a sliver of self-respect from this

:12:55.:13:06.

game. -- some kind of sliver of self-respect. Joachim Low is

:13:07.:13:18.

strolling around his technical area, as if he is walking through a

:13:19.:13:28.

blue Bell would. He has never had so much fun!

:13:29.:13:40.

Cup tied well by Maicon. -- cut out well by Maicon. This German side is

:13:41.:13:56.

ruthless, no sympathy at all. They have their foot on their opponents

:13:57.:13:57.

and they are not going to lift it. In this scheme of things, they talk

:13:58.:14:17.

about the great 1992 Brazilian team, saying that they are perhaps the

:14:18.:14:21.

best team that didn't make the World Cup final. Is this one of the worst

:14:22.:14:27.

teams ever to make the World Cup semifinals? Here they come. It is

:14:28.:14:34.

looking that way now, isn't it. 1992, such a great team, players

:14:35.:14:42.

like that do not exist in this team. A totally different Brazilian

:14:43.:14:47.

team. They are so reliant on Neymar and Thiago Silva.

:14:48.:14:52.

Into one added minute at the end. It's the worst 45 minutes of

:14:53.:15:01.

football, possibly, in Brazilian history!

:15:02.:15:17.

Hulk is chasing it and has failed to keep the ball in play. There will be

:15:18.:15:30.

three changes made at half-time. Maicon has to go, Fred definitely.

:15:31.:15:37.

Brazil vulnerable without their captain.

:15:38.:15:41.

CROWD BOO They have been outplayed and are being booed off. They have

:15:42.:15:50.

been humiliated by this German side. At half-time in the World Cup

:15:51.:15:54.

semifinal - Brazil 0, Germany 5. GARY LINEKER: In 18 minutes the host

:15:55.:16:07.

nation's hopes have gone from hope to despair. Have you seen a

:16:08.:16:11.

capitulation like that in your lifetime, Alan?

:16:12.:16:18.

ALAN HANSEN: Never. It is humiliate for the Brazilians. The pictures

:16:19.:16:27.

tell its own story. When you talk of every facet of defending, when you

:16:28.:16:31.

look at the organisation, the communication, the position, the

:16:32.:16:35.

cover, it's four levels below rock bottom! It is so bad it is

:16:36.:16:42.

embarrassing. David Luiz, he's meant to be the captain, the leader and

:16:43.:16:46.

he's abandoned ship. I have never seen a team look so beaten walking

:16:47.:16:54.

off at half-time. They are 5-0 down and it was a shambles.

:16:55.:17:01.

Germany have been outstanding, they have won every tackle. They have

:17:02.:17:07.

created chances. Got the ball wide. Movement is much better. Every

:17:08.:17:11.

position for a man, they have been a million times better. Brilliant! If

:17:12.:17:15.

ever there was a time to gloat, Rio, this is it? It is the first one he's

:17:16.:17:20.

got right! I called it before the game! Brazil have come up against a

:17:21.:17:27.

well-oiled, clinical machine. I think even the way that Germany set

:17:28.:17:31.

up in the first ten or 15 minutes, there was no gaps, no space for

:17:32.:17:35.

Brazil to play. They were getting it, they were lumping the ball long.

:17:36.:17:40.

They didn't have Neymar who could pull something out of the hat. I

:17:41.:17:43.

understand where you are coming from. They haven't had to do a lot

:17:44.:17:47.

to score five goals. Some of their play has been outstanding! Some of

:17:48.:17:52.

the play has been terrific. The passing, the movement. The Brazilian

:17:53.:17:58.

defence has been non-existent. The forwards have been outstanding.

:17:59.:18:03.

Khedira has been the best player on the pitch. He's broke things up,

:18:04.:18:08.

joined the attack, got his goal. He has done everything. Let's have a

:18:09.:18:10.

look at the first goal. It went to Thomas Muller. Hummels

:18:11.:18:22.

moved Dante and Luiz. Gets blocked by Klose. Well worked corner kick.

:18:23.:18:26.

Again, the Brazilians should have by Klose. Well worked corner kick.

:18:27.:18:30.

done better. That has worked on the training ground. That has worked.

:18:31.:18:34.

Three moves there - one to the ball, Klose has blocked the defender and

:18:35.:18:38.

Muller comes around the back. Perfect off the training ground. It

:18:39.:18:43.

works brilliantly. If you are losing that type of game, would you be

:18:44.:18:47.

happy, Rio? No. You have to admire the attacking play there. They have

:18:48.:18:51.

set that up. They have blocked Luiz. He can't get out. And one man you

:18:52.:18:59.

don't want it to fall to is him. Four guys do the job. The ball has

:19:00.:19:03.

to be a great ball. That is not the fan park in Rio! You can guess where

:19:04.:19:15.

it is. It is in Berlin. Their arm -- arm also be aching. Klose

:19:16.:19:21.

it is. It is in Berlin. Their arm -- Ronaldo's record? Marcelo, who has

:19:22.:19:25.

had a nightmare, we could have said anyone to be honest. Watch the

:19:26.:19:30.

reaction, or lack of reaction here. They get in too easy. They work it

:19:31.:19:33.

well, Germany. It is good They get in too easy. They work it

:19:34.:19:34.

is incisive. They get in too easy. They work it

:19:35.:19:39.

They should have finished it first time. You can't give that guy a

:19:40.:19:42.

second chance. That is brilliant play. The passing and movement from

:19:43.:19:46.

Germany is awesome. 26 mistakes in there! Right from the start, they

:19:47.:19:51.

don't close down quickly enough. When it comes across, Fernandinho

:19:52.:19:56.

missing it. The two centre-backs are 15 yards behind the centre-backs.

:19:57.:20:03.

You can only play what is put in front of you. A word on Miroslav

:20:04.:20:08.

Klose. That is a phenomenal record. He is not a Ronaldo or a Pele, he is

:20:09.:20:25.

a poacher. Great record. He doesn't do anything outside the box. Anyone

:20:26.:20:36.

that scores goals... I want to see someone doing skills. You get the

:20:37.:20:39.

same from one yard as you do from 20 yards! I want Ronaldo to be out

:20:40.:20:46.

there on his own! Kroos scored the next two goals, Rio. It was getting

:20:47.:20:52.

simple? It was getting embarrassing! It was coming too easy. Watch the

:20:53.:20:57.

space down the left. Marcelo is not wanting to defend at all. There's

:20:58.:21:01.

loads of defenders in there. No-one is taking responsibility to pick

:21:02.:21:05.

anybody up. Who is going to step up and take responsibility and make

:21:06.:21:09.

sure people are doing their jobs? It is a fantastic finish. If you think

:21:10.:21:15.

this is bad, wait till you see the next one! This is from the kick-off.

:21:16.:21:20.

We were talking about David Luiz, he has to step up to the plate. Well,

:21:21.:21:25.

they pass it, they pass it, and Fernandinho comes short. It was a

:21:26.:21:35.

bad touch. Unbelievable. Just... That is good pressing from Germany.

:21:36.:21:38.

If you look at the way they are set up, there are no spaces. Fred is

:21:39.:21:43.

isolated. They can't see anything. When you start playing from the

:21:44.:21:46.

back, sometimes you leave yourself open. They have to be punished and

:21:47.:21:50.

Germany have been fantastic. Clinical. Is this a question of

:21:51.:21:57.

Silva's out and they can't cope without him? Everything has fallen

:21:58.:22:02.

apart? He seems like he is the glue in that back four. Marcelo has

:22:03.:22:12.

played like a left-winger! It is unbelievable. Being the captain, you

:22:13.:22:17.

need to say you, come here! You are looking for your characters. There

:22:18.:22:22.

hasn't been any for Brazil. Somebody mentioned Khedira was the best

:22:23.:22:27.

player in the first half. When he starts scoring goals, you know you

:22:28.:22:32.

are in trouble? This is Luiz again. He's come running out 15 or 20 yards

:22:33.:22:36.

in front of the centre-back. Jumps into the tackle. Embarrassing.

:22:37.:22:46.

Coming out like that, you are leaving your mates in the lurch. You

:22:47.:22:50.

have to take everything there. He has to take and win the ball there.

:22:51.:22:55.

There are no ifs or buts, he has to take the ball. He cannot pull out of

:22:56.:22:58.

a tackle there, 4-0 down, pulling out of a tackle? It is an

:22:59.:23:07.

embarrassment. I wouldn't want to be one of these Brazilian guys walking

:23:08.:23:11.

out into this stadium after this. You don't think they can come back

:23:12.:23:16.

into it, no(?) I don't think they can believe it in Berlin. We played

:23:17.:23:21.

against Liverpool at Old Trafford and they beat us 5-1 and Paul

:23:22.:23:26.

Scholes said, "Listen, no more goals." I don't see no-one in that

:23:27.:23:31.

team doing that. You need someone to say, "We can't be embarrassed

:23:32.:23:36.

anymore here." It will be tough to find a restaurant tonight! I'm not

:23:37.:23:41.

leaving my room. Overall, what does it mean to a country like this? You

:23:42.:23:45.

saw what it meant to some of the images of the crowd there, they were

:23:46.:23:49.

crying, the boys were crying. They were devastated. You have to put up

:23:50.:23:53.

a bigger fight than that. We have talked a lot about David Luiz. He

:23:54.:24:01.

had a couple of incidents where there was an elbow. The first one

:24:02.:24:10.

here on Klose. That is a red card. If the referee is nearer to the

:24:11.:24:15.

incident, he is off. That was early on. The next one coming up. He does

:24:16.:24:21.

this quite a lot playing for Chelsea. He gets away with it. He is

:24:22.:24:30.

fortunate. Klose again. Then, like Rio was saying, he's out on the

:24:31.:24:33.

right-hand side. Watch him trying to get back. He is not interested. He

:24:34.:24:38.

laboured. They are under real pressure. Like Rio says, they don't

:24:39.:24:43.

want to go six down, but where is he? It is not good. And we said

:24:44.:24:54.

before the match because Thiago Silva was missing, somebody had to

:24:55.:24:58.

step up to the plate and hold that unit together. He's disappeared.

:24:59.:25:02.

No-one has. Let's find out what Juninho made of the opening 45 MPs.

:25:03.:25:08.

-- 45 minutes. This should be interesting. Incredible, the host

:25:09.:25:16.

nation destroyed. Juninho, what has happened to your country? I'm in

:25:17.:25:22.

shock. It is unbelievable. We said at the beginning we need to match

:25:23.:25:28.

the players, we don't need to let them play and they are playing all

:25:29.:25:32.

over the field, even in our box. It looks like a training session when

:25:33.:25:37.

the players let their mates play. So, it is unbelievable. Especially

:25:38.:25:44.

the back four. We are not closing off. They are receiving the ball so

:25:45.:25:49.

easily. They are moving and passing so easily. So, it is difficult to

:25:50.:25:54.

understand the attitude. We have talked endlessly about the loss of

:25:55.:25:59.

Neymar. Yeah. They have lost Thiago Silva, his leadership, his

:26:00.:26:01.

organisation skills are missed tonight? Exactly. Exactly. Exactly.

:26:02.:26:07.

You are right. Everyone was talking about Neymar, but Thiago Silva in

:26:08.:26:13.

this game, I'm sure we didn't concern the space to play as we did.

:26:14.:26:19.

Now, I think Scolari needs to protect the team. Don't think to win

:26:20.:26:24.

the game. He needs to protect the team. Thank you very much.

:26:25.:26:29.

Bizarrely, the lights went out above us in the stand. The lights have

:26:30.:26:34.

most certainly gone out on Brazil's World Cup dream.

:26:35.:26:38.

They certainly have. Thank you very much. Rio is not the only Londoner

:26:39.:26:41.

enjoying this World Cup. There is more worth waiting for this

:26:42.:27:45.

summer on BBC One! GARY LINEKER: Brazil might bring on

:27:46.:27:49.

Sharon for the second half! The World Cup Final takes place on

:27:50.:27:55.

Sunday. We will have highlights of tomorrow's semifinal between

:27:56.:27:59.

Argentina and Holland on BBC One at 11.45pm. Argentina will take to the

:28:00.:28:02.

pitch tomorrow with the country mourning the death of one of its

:28:03.:28:21.

greatest ever players. Alfredo Di St?fano represented the national

:28:22.:28:24.

teams of Argentina, Colombia and Spain. It is his contribution to

:28:25.:28:28.

club football that gives him a claim to be the most influential player of

:28:29.:28:39.

all time. At the age of 27, he crossed the Atlantic to join Real

:28:40.:28:43.

Madrid where he would win the European Cup five times in

:28:44.:28:45.

successive seasons. Like a blond arrow fired at the

:28:46.:28:57.

heart of the game, he ran the heart of the show. He ordered and cajoled,

:28:58.:29:01.

set up the play and scored the goals. He was, said Bobby Charlton,

:29:02.:29:07.

the complete footballer. Today, if Leeds United play in all white, if

:29:08.:29:08.

there is a team in the United Leeds United play in all white, if

:29:09.:29:14.

called Real Salt Lake, if football fans all over the world are in

:29:15.:29:21.

morning, it is down to Alfredo Di Stefano.

:29:22.:29:34.

saw him play live, but some of the older guys I know say he was the

:29:35.:29:41.

best ever. What an accolade that is! The two sides are ? on the pitch.

:29:42.:29:48.

The last time Brazil lost by four goals in the World Cup? 1954 against

:29:49.:29:57.

Hungary. Pride. It'll be interesting to see how they approach it? Do you

:29:58.:30:00.

go for it, or do you just hang on? There have been three substitutions

:30:01.:30:19.

at half-time. Per Mertesacker has come on. Ramires and Paulinho have

:30:20.:30:29.

come on. Martin Keown, have you ever seen a performance like that in a

:30:30.:30:40.

World Cup semifinal? MARTIN KEOWN: it is just about hanging onto some

:30:41.:30:43.

pride now. Good luck scoring three in the

:30:44.:30:55.

second half against Germany! So, Mats Hummels is off, Per

:30:56.:31:19.

Mertesacker is on. There is one of the substitutes, Ramires. This team

:31:20.:31:37.

where occasionally brewed by their home supporters. -- booed.

:31:38.:31:59.

The shaft by Ramires is cleared away. Many people thought that

:32:00.:32:09.

Ramires should have been in the starting line-up. Yes, the one thing

:32:10.:32:16.

he will give you is legs. He will run and run. It was an attacking

:32:17.:32:28.

selection by Felipe Scolari. Rather than that attacking selection, he

:32:29.:32:36.

put a lot of people in the midfield, and it has backfired in

:32:37.:32:44.

some fashion. He has put a lot of faith in Hulk and Fred in this

:32:45.:32:54.

tournament. German free kick, Philipp Lahm to take it.

:32:55.:33:18.

It is hard to say at the moment is the empty seats on the other side of

:33:19.:33:24.

the ground or just people being slow to get back, or if people have just

:33:25.:33:27.

gone home. Jerome Boateng does well when he

:33:28.:34:00.

realises he can get it. The Mexican referee is completely disinterested

:34:01.:34:07.

in that call for a penalty. No real contact. One of the big differences

:34:08.:34:14.

between the Brazil team this year and the one that won the

:34:15.:34:17.

Confederations Cup last year is the goals that they got from elsewhere

:34:18.:34:23.

in the team. Fred got five goals in the Confederations Cup, he only has

:34:24.:34:30.

got one in this. It has all been about Neymar, virtually, in terms of

:34:31.:34:33.

putting the ball in the back of the about Neymar, virtually, in terms of

:34:34.:34:34.

net. To reliant on one player. Per Mertesacker will be trying to

:34:35.:34:58.

stake a claim for a place in the team in the final.

:34:59.:35:33.

Manuel Neuer got a little touch on that. The danger is, when Brazil

:35:34.:35:39.

pile forward in search of some sort of honour from this game, that they

:35:40.:35:43.

could leave themselves open at the back.

:35:44.:35:58.

Gerd Muller is therefore Germany. He gets it away to Mesut Ozil. -- Gerd

:35:59.:36:18.

Manuel Neuer is certainly the best goalkeeper in world football.

:36:19.:36:37.

Just looking at a replay there, Manuel Neuer, great reactions, he

:36:38.:36:45.

makes up his mind. Bread and butter for him. David Luiz, the good and

:36:46.:36:59.

the bad. Chelsea were not convinced. They let him go. They were probably

:37:00.:37:17.

right. Manuel Neuer with a stop! Great save by Manuel Neuer. Oscar

:37:18.:37:23.

should have scored. He tries to hit it with the outside of his right

:37:24.:37:27.

foot. He had more time than he realised. Better, though.

:37:28.:38:06.

to play. They are going to approach this in the manner of a team which

:38:07.:38:15.

is giving the impression of one that might get back into this game. They

:38:16.:38:21.

might give themselves problems approaching it like that.

:38:22.:38:33.

Magnificent save by Manuel Neuer! Stunning! He is a man mountain,

:38:34.:38:48.

isn't he? Paulinho takes an absolute age to hit that.

:38:49.:39:15.

You get the feeling that Manuel Neuer in the German goal is

:39:16.:39:19.

thinking, OK, bring it on! In our pre-match your vote, 41% of

:39:20.:39:35.

you said that Germany would win the World Cup. Then the Dutch. 14% of

:39:36.:39:42.

you now have egg on your face! He thought that was going to hit the

:39:43.:40:08.

back of the net, but, no, great reactions by Manuel Neuer. For me,

:40:09.:40:18.

that is a bad finish. He is some goalkeeper.

:40:19.:40:33.

They have all the experience in the world with the coaches in the

:40:34.:40:41.

Brazilian dugout, but no one will be able to get them back into this one.

:40:42.:40:50.

That goes out for a German through. -- throw. Right idea, bad execution.

:40:51.:41:01.

Just look at the times on the goals! -- throw. Right idea, bad execution.

:41:02.:41:07.

From 11 minutes after 28 minutes. They just

:41:08.:41:27.

It is that old saying, go and win the second half. Such effortless

:41:28.:41:48.

thing to do, really. They have given the ball away carelessly again. That

:41:49.:41:56.

is a great ball back into Thomas Muller.

:41:57.:42:04.

Into the hands of Julio Cesar. The work rate by Thomas Muller is

:42:05.:42:10.

phenomenal. Manuel Neuer patrolled the area

:42:11.:42:21.

outside his 18-yard box Manuel Neuer patrolled the area

:42:22.:42:28.

only. He hasn't really needed to do it today, that if he does, he is

:42:29.:42:31.

there. The sweeper keeper. Another change here. Howedes is

:42:32.:43:12.

coming on for Miroslav Klose. A record breaker, 16 goals. It gives a

:43:13.:43:20.

much better balance to the team. This is his goal. It comes back to

:43:21.:43:25.

him nicely. An incredible achievement by him. Extra salt in

:43:26.:43:33.

the wound for Brazil, Reynaldo's record has gone. -- Ronaldo's

:43:34.:43:45.

record. The top scorers in this tournament

:43:46.:44:01.

are mostly what you would call the number ten.

:44:02.:44:15.

Fred with a shot. Very comfortable by Manuel Neuer. Fred should be

:44:16.:44:34.

giving that to Bernard. That is Khedira at his best, the

:44:35.:44:46.

threaded little passes he makes in the final third. He enjoys getting

:44:47.:44:50.

out on the right-hand side when Muller goes central. Given away

:44:51.:44:56.

badly. Muller around the goalkeeper. Julio Cesar manages to get a foot on

:44:57.:45:00.

it. And put it behind for a corner kick. Thomas Muller might have made

:45:01.:45:05.

it six. Might have gone down as well. Muller is like a rash.

:45:06.:45:14.

They have given the ball away so often in such awful areas, Brazil.

:45:15.:45:23.

Kroos with the corner. Kroos, two goals of the five. Schweinsteiger

:45:24.:45:27.

here. Schweinsteiger, to Khedira, who scored the fifth. Andre

:45:28.:45:30.

Schurrle. Khedira. Clever disguise on that. Muller shot

:45:31.:45:47.

- good save! Top play there. Julio Cesar, that is a wonderful save he

:45:48.:45:52.

makes, on to his left foot. Just pushes it over. That is going in.

:45:53.:45:56.

But for the fingertips. Muller senses there's more goals

:45:57.:46:02.

here. Already he has ten goals in his two

:46:03.:46:12.

World Cup Final appearances. He had never scored for Germany

:46:13.:46:31.

before the last World Cup Finals and then scored five. Schurrle is coming

:46:32.:46:35.

back to close Bernard down. outstretched leg. The referee is

:46:36.:46:50.

unmoved. He's given a corner. And the Germans are saying that Maicon

:46:51.:46:53.

should be shown a yellow card for a dive. Maicon takes a touch. He's

:46:54.:47:06.

diving. I hate to see that. Lucky not to get a yellow card. In comes

:47:07.:47:08.

the corner. Neuer takes it ever so easily. That

:47:09.:47:22.

is where he is majestic. Great athleticism. His distribution is

:47:23.:47:26.

slightly off the mark. Maicon back to Julio Cesar. He doesn't admire

:47:27.:47:30.

his save. He launches another attack.

:47:31.:47:47.

Brazil will have a throw-in. They are trying to get themselves on the

:47:48.:47:54.

scoreboard. There he is. And there is the man whose record he has

:47:55.:48:01.

beaten. He was some player. I had the privilege to play against him.

:48:02.:48:09.

David Luiz is fouled. Comparing Fred to those great strikers. His

:48:10.:48:18.

movement is non-existent. I have to blame Scolari for picking him. If

:48:19.:48:27.

his next best options are Jo and Hulk, perhaps that is why he keeps

:48:28.:48:31.

picking him down the middle. I thought Hulk might have started down

:48:32.:48:33.

the middle tonight. Paulinho. He might unleash something here.

:48:34.:48:43.

Maicon gives Dante something to chase. Thomas Muller doesn't. Dante

:48:44.:48:48.

finds David Luiz. Bernard has kept it in play, but his

:48:49.:49:02.

cross is too deep for Fred and it is smashed away by Howedes. Where do

:49:03.:49:08.

the Brazilians go after the humiliation of Belo Horizonte? They

:49:09.:49:12.

go to Brasilia for the third place match and then they go into hiding,

:49:13.:49:17.

I guess. Germany are doing enough, just seeing it through. Again, so

:49:18.:49:19.

professional. Ozil, infield to Kroos. Lovely

:49:20.:49:43.

stuff. Muller into the middle. Schurrle arriving. The flick on it

:49:44.:49:48.

from Dante, just helped it reach Julio Cesar rather than Mesut

:49:49.:49:52.

from Dante, just helped it reach and Andre Schurrle. Look at him, he

:49:53.:49:55.

from Dante, just helped it reach wants more. They are all over you,

:49:56.:49:59.

the Germans. Great movement, a willingness to get forward.

:50:00.:50:03.

Joachim Low is thinking not only can we absolutely batter Brazil here,

:50:04.:50:11.

but we can send out a psychological message to whoever we reach in the

:50:12.:50:13.

final, whoever we play in the final. message to whoever we reach in the

:50:14.:50:20.

Every one of them - this is Howedes, he is

:50:21.:50:32.

Scolari is going to have to draw names out of a hat to pick a team

:50:33.:50:56.

Scolari is going to have to draw play-off. I don't think there will

:50:57.:51:04.

be too many volunteers. The game has gone to a walking pace. Dante

:51:05.:51:09.

looking for Luiz trying to play it through to

:51:10.:51:41.

Luiz Gustavo. Won by Bastian Schweinsteiger. Here is Thomas

:51:42.:51:44.

Muller. Schweinsteiger is making a run

:51:45.:51:46.

Muller. Schweinsteiger is making a Muller. They have two in the middle.

:51:47.:51:49.

This is Schweinsteiger. He will let it go to Schurrle and Julio Cesar

:51:50.:51:51.

did ever so well. it go to Schurrle and Julio Cesar

:51:52.:51:59.

really well the goalkeeper. Paulinho for Brazil.

:52:00.:52:05.

That's a good ball to Bernard. Bernard can tee up Marcelo.

:52:06.:52:09.

That's a good ball to Bernard. for Paulinho. Mertesacker's header.

:52:10.:52:14.

Oh and almost on to the chest of Fred!

:52:15.:52:17.

Oh and almost on to the chest of Fred got a touch on it, it wouldn't

:52:18.:52:27.

have counted. Just straying offside. Well seen by the linesman.

:52:28.:52:40.

Julio Cesar did really well for that one. Muller was running free again.

:52:41.:52:46.

Schweinsteiger was so unselfish. Muller is playing centre forward now

:52:47.:52:48.

and it is a Muller is playing centre forward now

:52:49.:52:51.

problem. He is playing on the last defender's shoulder. If he can get

:52:52.:52:55.

the through ball he is looking for, he will be in.

:52:56.:53:00.

Argentina beat the USA 6-1 in the 1930 semifinal and Uruguay beat

:53:01.:53:12.

Yugoslavia by the same scoreline in the same year and Germany put six

:53:13.:53:18.

past Austria in 1964, so five is the biggest ever margin of victory.

:53:19.:53:25.

Brilliant from Muller. First yellow card goes to Dante. Muller made

:53:26.:53:32.

that, he comes off to feet, plays it off. Willian is going to be on

:53:33.:53:36.

shortly for Brazil. Germany want more.

:53:37.:54:04.

one more, he is on a hat-trick. Lahm can play in Khedira. Three in the

:54:05.:54:08.

middle. Khedira, lovely ball into Lahm. Lahm square and it's a tap-in!

:54:09.:54:15.

middle. Khedira, lovely ball into That's six and Andre Schurrle makes

:54:16.:54:19.

it six to Germany and if it stays this way, it is the biggest ever

:54:20.:54:26.

victory in a World Cup semifinal. Shambolic defending once more. It is

:54:27.:54:29.

pass and move. The boos ring round. It is another

:54:30.:54:43.

tap-in. The marking is totally non-existent. Look at David Luiz

:54:44.:54:49.

standing there. He has to be marking in the box. Ridiculous! Still 20

:54:50.:54:59.

minutes to go. Brazil have made a change. They have taken off Fred and

:55:00.:55:04.

it was Fred who was the recipient of those boos from around the stadium.

:55:05.:55:10.

And Willian does not look exactly thrilled at the prospect of playing

:55:11.:55:18.

these last 20 minutes. He's on. The Brazilian crowd, many of them, are

:55:19.:55:19.

off. The Germans might declare in a

:55:20.:55:37.

minute! Not sure the Brazilians have been third best, let alone second

:55:38.:55:38.

best! He's got that pass in the locker,

:55:39.:56:09.

Kroos. Switch-pass. Beautiful passer of a ball. Khedira into Ozil. Ozil

:56:10.:56:16.

with a change of direction. Khedira. Kroos was just a little bit

:56:17.:56:24.

stationary. Listen to the reaction - that picture is on the big-screen in

:56:25.:56:26.

the stadium. He finds Willian. Willian, a little

:56:27.:56:47.

curler, he is well wide. This has been such a happy hunting ground for

:56:48.:56:53.

Fred. He scored 42 goals in 49 appearances in this stadium. And now

:56:54.:56:59.

he's booed every time the camera picks him out on the bench.

:57:00.:57:11.

There are many people in this stadium who have not seen Brazil

:57:12.:57:23.

lose at home. No-one has ever seen them lose like this at home.

:57:24.:57:47.

Germany are enjoying themselves. They are keeping it so simple. When

:57:48.:58:12.

it is tight on one side, they go out the other.

:58:13.:58:22.

Germany, for all Brazil's obvious inadequacies, have been excellent.

:58:23.:58:28.

This is a system that other teams can copy. It is not rocket science

:58:29.:58:33.

the way they are playing. That midfield three, Schweinsteiger sits

:58:34.:58:39.

deeper, their full-backs push on. It is their game management, the way

:58:40.:58:43.

their intelligence and they will punish you when they have to.

:58:44.:58:55.

Germany have become the first team in this World Cup to score six. Here

:58:56.:59:01.

is Paulinho. Nice footwork from Willian. Paulinho. Into the gloves

:59:02.:59:08.

of Neuer. He will refuse to be beaten if he has anything to say

:59:09.:59:10.

about it. in 2002, Germany scored eight goals

:59:11.:59:28.

against Saudi Arabia. The funny thing is, I think Germany have more

:59:29.:59:33.

in their locker for the final, whoever they will be playing

:59:34.:59:39.

against. They will go into it fresh, having one extra day of rest.

:59:40.:59:43.

Great for their confidence. Toni Kroos was looking for a give

:59:44.:00:31.

and go to get his hat-trick. And why not? They are letting the ball do

:00:32.:00:38.

the work, Germany. Just a little bit too much on that

:00:39.:00:56.

pass by Toni Kroos to Mesut Ozil. Another substitution,

:00:57.:00:57.

pass by Toni Kroos to Mesut Ozil. is going to come on. Part of this

:00:58.:01:06.

seeming conveyor belt of German forward players. He has been heavily

:01:07.:01:19.

linked to Arsenal. Julian Draxler will get about 14 minutes of play.

:01:20.:01:30.

Great for the young man to get on. Sami Khedira is coming off. He has

:01:31.:01:37.

been wonderful tonight. Hasn't he? He was out with a very bad injury,

:01:38.:01:44.

he was not able to play in the Champions League final. So, Sami

:01:45.:01:52.

Khedira off, Howedes arm. -- Julian Draxler on.

:01:53.:02:15.

losing his head. Thomas Muller not happy with the challenge. That all

:02:16.:02:27.

came from when Marcelo, the left-back, give up possession. They

:02:28.:02:33.

are six goals down, how many do they want to lose by? Handbags there.

:02:34.:03:22.

The German fans are swaying from side to side.

:03:23.:03:32.

I'm sure they would like to see a couple more.

:03:33.:03:59.

There are the German fans. Lovely little reverse ball. Howedes! It is

:04:00.:04:15.

seven! Stunning finish! Everyone of these is just sublime that role. --

:04:16.:04:25.

sublime football. I think the Brazilians have had enough.

:04:26.:04:30.

Unfortunately for them, I don't think the Germans have had enough!

:04:31.:04:36.

They just can't believe it. They are shaking their heads in disbelief.

:04:37.:04:42.

Applause breaks out around the ground, which is good to hear. Look

:04:43.:04:51.

at that. It is like watching one of the great Brazilian teams of

:04:52.:04:56.

yesteryear. Fantastic finish, top corner. In this country they know

:04:57.:05:02.

all about good football. The Brazilian fans still in this ground,

:05:03.:05:10.

I would suggest have just stood and applauded the team that has

:05:11.:05:12.

dismantled their heroes limb from limb. They know good football when

:05:13.:05:23.

they see it. Fair play to them. Germany are one goal away from their

:05:24.:05:26.

biggest ever World Cup final spec tree. That was against Saudi Arabia

:05:27.:05:46.

in 2002, 8-0. -- biggest ever World Cup win.

:05:47.:05:51.

Tomorrow night, BBC One, highlights of the second semifinal, Argentina

:05:52.:06:09.

against the Netherlands. Sunny, the first thing that Gerd Muller did

:06:10.:06:14.

there was try to get the ball moving again. And why not? The World Cup

:06:15.:06:27.

final of 2014, Germany versus either Argentina or at the Dutch, on BBC

:06:28.:06:33.

One. We are on air from seven o'clock. The distribution from Gerd

:06:34.:06:42.

Muller is different class. Julio Cesar has been beaten seven

:06:43.:06:55.

times in the semifinal. Whatever the state of the game, the

:06:56.:07:10.

Germans do not abuse it, they keep it simple, move it from side to

:07:11.:07:15.

side. Great to watch. The Germans have not missed too many. Brilliant

:07:16.:07:25.

German finishing. Almost everything they heads went in. You have to say,

:07:26.:07:32.

David Luiz has pretty much given up in the middle of defence.

:07:33.:08:00.

The Brazilian fans are actually giving the German team oles. That is

:08:01.:08:07.

The Brazilian fans are actually ultimate humiliation for the home

:08:08.:08:12.

team. I don't think it gets much more humiliating than when the fans

:08:13.:08:22.

are giving an ole for every pass that the opposition strikes. Look at

:08:23.:08:29.

this fellow Bastian Schweinsteiger. A ball. Great they are. -- never

:08:30.:08:39.

seems to waste a ball. He is a great player.

:08:40.:08:50.

It has been an astonishing World Cup. Every other day that seems to

:08:51.:08:57.

have been a classic game, and unbelievable result, a brilliant

:08:58.:09:00.

story. It is intoxicating. Addict did. It will soon be over, what

:09:01.:09:10.

shall we do with our time? In terms of shocking results, this is the

:09:11.:09:11.

daddy of them all. The agony is almost over. Five

:09:12.:10:07.

minutes. It will be interesting to see what the crowd does on the

:10:08.:10:16.

whistle. Manuel Neuer never took his eye off it. Ramires has had a real

:10:17.:10:33.

goes into came on. You should have started, in my opinion. Manuel Neuer

:10:34.:10:38.

has been the standard goalkeeper of the World Cup. If you want to win

:10:39.:10:45.

anything, you need to have a top, top goalkeeper, and they certainly

:10:46.:10:46.

have that. Jerome Boateng was looking for

:10:47.:11:11.

Howedes, but couldn't find him. If Jerome Boateng was looking for

:11:12.:11:20.

Germany get their skates on, they could be their biggest ever big

:11:21.:11:27.

tree, and match the biggest ever margin of winning at a World Cup

:11:28.:11:43.

tree, and match the biggest ever A needless collision between Bernard

:11:44.:11:47.

and Manuel Neuer. Look at this finish! Again, David Luiz, nowhere

:11:48.:11:55.

near his man. You just have to do the basics. It is very difficult to

:11:56.:12:06.

look beyond Germany now for he is going to win the tournament. -- who

:12:07.:12:15.

is going to win. Magnificent performances by

:12:16.:12:37.

Kroos and Mesut Ozil. Brazilian football will have to go through an

:12:38.:12:50.

intense period of self examination. Good covering by Luiz Gustavo. It is

:12:51.:12:58.

a corner. His left-back has let him down tonight. They all have.

:12:59.:13:29.

Germany have completely owned the semifinal, from the moment they took

:13:30.:13:37.

the lead. Surely their best ever performance in a World Cup. It is

:13:38.:13:46.

certainly not over yet. They now go into the finals. There

:13:47.:13:54.

certainly not over yet. They now go Lahm. I think they will be

:13:55.:13:56.

overriding favourites, I'm afraid. The shot came in from Oscar. Almost

:13:57.:14:17.

an impossible finish from that angle.

:14:18.:14:24.

He's been disappointing. Another one. Oscar.

:14:25.:14:37.

A test of character for Brazil, they have failed abysmally.

:14:38.:14:49.

A shocking finish. For once, a German mistake has given the ball to

:14:50.:15:02.

Ramires. Germany can break here. Ozil down the middle. Mesut Ozil is

:15:03.:15:07.

onside and through. He's put it wide! That is the one thing missing

:15:08.:15:16.

from his game, Ozil. That ruthlessness, a great run through

:15:17.:15:19.

the middle. You think he is going to be calm - he is. He misses the

:15:20.:15:25.

target. Neuer be calm - he is. He misses the

:15:26.:15:31.

and retreated. Oscar for Brazil gets one. The Germans are furious. That

:15:32.:15:40.

tells you a lot about them. The Germans are absolutely livid. For

:15:41.:15:50.

once, Neuer is not there. You expect him to be covering. He starts to

:15:51.:15:56.

come and he goes back. Oscar does the rest.

:15:57.:16:03.

At least it's given them something to work on before the final.

:16:04.:16:08.

Everything else has been pitch-perfect.

:16:09.:16:21.

Oscar scores the most pointless of World Cup goals. Two added minutes

:16:22.:16:33.

at the end of the game. Here's Bernard. He is onside. Oscar is in

:16:34.:16:36.

the middle. Here's Willian. Brazilian corner. I don't think they

:16:37.:16:57.

are singing, "We are going to win 8-7!"

:16:58.:17:15.

Germany can break. Onside here. Draxler. Still Draxler. The whistle

:17:16.:17:23.

has gone and the referee has said that Draxler fouled his man. It's a

:17:24.:17:31.

Brazilian free-kick and that's it. Germany are into the World Cup

:17:32.:17:32.

Final. Brazil, thoroughly unforgivable

:17:33.:17:55.

performance. Germany, thoroughly unforgettable performance. Brazil 1,

:17:56.:17:57.

Germany 7. GARY LINEKER: We have just witnessed

:17:58.:18:06.

one of the truly astonishing victories in football history. This

:18:07.:18:11.

was not just one of the game's superpowers beating a small nation,

:18:12.:18:15.

this was Brazil, for crying out loud, Brazil hosting the World Cup

:18:16.:18:19.

for the first time in 64 years. Germany's elation is matched by

:18:20.:18:25.

Brazil's desolation. Germany are the first country to score seven goals

:18:26.:18:31.

in a World Cup semifinal. Spain, the World Champions, scored eight

:18:32.:18:34.

throughout the entire competition. Brazil have gone 62 competitive

:18:35.:18:44.

games unbeaten at home before today. Try, Alan, to put this game into

:18:45.:18:48.

context? ALAN HANSEN: I have been watching

:18:49.:18:53.

football for over 50 years, the high point was the Brazilian side in

:18:54.:18:57.

1970. This is a low point. If you come to Brazil and see them

:18:58.:19:01.

capitulate in the manner they did, you have to give the Germans tonnes

:19:02.:19:06.

of credit. At the same time, it was a woeful, woeful, woeful performance

:19:07.:19:09.

that could not get any lower than it did.

:19:10.:19:15.

ALAN SHEARER: I would be concerned that some of these players may never

:19:16.:19:19.

recover from this, the pressure on these guys to perform is incredible.

:19:20.:19:28.

Thiago Silva there consoling the Brazilian players. Nice

:19:29.:19:33.

sportsmanship from Luiz Felipe Scolari there. Yes. And Klose came

:19:34.:19:39.

and gave Scolari a big hug, which was nice to see. I don't think the

:19:40.:19:44.

Germans can believe it themselves what just happened. They scored four

:19:45.:19:51.

goals in six minutes to go 5-0 up in the semifinal of the World Cup. It

:19:52.:19:56.

is like... RIO FERDINAND: These guys have to

:19:57.:20:03.

stick around now. And play a third and fourth play-off game. Will the

:20:04.:20:06.

fans come out and see them? They have to read the papers. All of the

:20:07.:20:11.

media will be on them. I hope the media don't try and find a scapegoat

:20:12.:20:15.

for this as well. This was a case of a group of individuals coming up

:20:16.:20:18.

against a very, very clinical side. The Germans reaction to their

:20:19.:20:33.

supporters is in such contrast, Al? It looks as if Luiz Felipe Scolari

:20:34.:20:38.

is staying in the middle of that huddle and saying, "Leave it to me,

:20:39.:20:42.

I will sort it out." That will be very difficult. He will try and

:20:43.:20:47.

protect his players as much as possible. He is a very loyal man. It

:20:48.:20:53.

will be difficult for him to take this away from them. Incredible

:20:54.:20:58.

scenes in the stadium there. Big-name players, David Luiz there.

:20:59.:21:02.

I mean, everything is incredible. The scoreline was incredible. The

:21:03.:21:06.

scenes are incredible. It is just disbelief of what's happened in the

:21:07.:21:11.

last 90 minutes. It is - nobody could have written the script. The

:21:12.:21:20.

faces sum it up. He is in tears. Even though he gave one of the worst

:21:21.:21:24.

performances I have ever seen, I feel sorry for him. You can't

:21:25.:21:28.

understand what these players feel like. You had Holland, who battered

:21:29.:21:34.

Spain in the first game. And then you could never see that being

:21:35.:21:37.

surpassed. You come to this in the semifinal. How these players will

:21:38.:21:42.

recover, I don't know. The supporters - we have been here for

:21:43.:21:50.

four-and-a-half, five weeks. It is grown, the interest has

:21:51.:21:53.

four-and-a-half, five weeks. It is All of a sudden, all these

:21:54.:21:59.

supporters are totally deflated. I think the Brazilian support has been

:22:00.:22:03.

total. We have said from the start, it is not a great Brazilian side.

:22:04.:22:07.

Every time they have gone on the pitch, the crowd has given them a

:22:08.:22:12.

lift and some purpose. They have been absolutely brilliant. When your

:22:13.:22:17.

team has been beaten by the margin that we have just seen, there is not

:22:18.:22:22.

a lot of good news. The other side of the story, for the desolation of

:22:23.:22:28.

Brazil, elation there for these supporters. A word on Germany's

:22:29.:22:37.

performance. They were ruthless, clinical, right from the first

:22:38.:22:39.

minute. They showed their intentions. They got after the ball.

:22:40.:22:44.

They didn't give them any space. And their one touch and two-touch

:22:45.:22:48.

passing was fantastic. It was great to watch. Yes, you can criticise the

:22:49.:22:55.

defensive errors. The Germans made it. They made it easy. You have to

:22:56.:22:59.

go out there and show what you are made of. The Germans did that. They

:23:00.:23:03.

did it - the game was won at half-time. Also, second half, I

:23:04.:23:07.

think it tells a lot about the players' mentality. Players can

:23:08.:23:11.

switch off in a game, 5-0 up, you think we have done the hard part, we

:23:12.:23:15.

will take it easy. They wanted to go out and get more goals. That is how

:23:16.:23:19.

ruthless they are. This Brazilian team didn't have a structure. The

:23:20.:23:22.

great Brazilian teams in '70 team didn't have a structure. The

:23:23.:23:29.

'82, they didn't play with a structure, but they were that good,

:23:30.:23:33.

it didn't matter. This team had nothing. Rio, we talked prior to the

:23:34.:23:39.

game tonight, such is the excitement we have had, but one thing we lacked

:23:40.:23:43.

was a great team. Have we found one? I think we have. They have been

:23:44.:23:52.

was a great team. Have we found one? showing glimpses of this. I think

:23:53.:23:57.

here, not trying to take the gloss off this performance, they have to

:23:58.:24:00.

win this tournament now. This performance and result will count

:24:01.:24:05.

for nothing if they don't win. I noticed there that scoreline. 7-1.

:24:06.:24:13.

People tuning in - they think there is something wrong. It is disbelief.

:24:14.:24:21.

Everywhere you look, on the pitch, here, the spectators watching, total

:24:22.:24:25.

disbelief. You can go on about a great team, but it doesn't say a

:24:26.:24:30.

great team on that trophy. It says winners. Whoever it is. You don't

:24:31.:24:33.

have to be a great team. You have to be great winners. This German team

:24:34.:24:38.

have got it in them. 5-0 at half-time. Schurrle scored a couple

:24:39.:24:48.

to make it seven! It was no surprise that it came down the right-hand

:24:49.:24:54.

side, the Brazilian left-hand side. Marcelo, who escaped criticism also,

:24:55.:25:00.

he was as poor as David Luiz was. Lets him in too easily. David Luiz

:25:01.:25:05.

standing still. Hasn't a clue. Schurrle, good movement. Very good

:25:06.:25:12.

finish. No reaction to anything. Six or seven Brazilian defenders in

:25:13.:25:15.

there. And yet no reaction whatsoever. This is an amazing

:25:16.:25:20.

finish. This is a great finish. It comes from a throw-in, Rio. I don't

:25:21.:25:25.

think they have had to have great movement here. That is one of the

:25:26.:25:30.

disappointing things. David Luiz and Schurrle, he has not tracked him. It

:25:31.:25:34.

is an unbelievable finish. A superb goal. First touch as well, puts it

:25:35.:25:40.

into his path. To score a goal like that, that is something dreams are

:25:41.:25:44.

made of. He is living that dream. They have not had to work too hard.

:25:45.:25:49.

A simple run-in behind from the throw, David Luiz doesn't track the

:25:50.:25:53.

runner, it is simple things that are happening. Basic errors that are

:25:54.:25:58.

going on and you can't recover. That was a good half for them, the second

:25:59.:26:04.

half(!) The first half, you cannot believe what was going on there. If

:26:05.:26:07.

we show the goals from the first half, they were worse than the two

:26:08.:26:11.

goals that Schurrle scored there. We will come to those goals shortly.

:26:12.:26:16.

Firstly, let's get the views of our South American football expert to

:26:17.:26:20.

try somehow to put that result into context of what it means in this

:26:21.:26:26.

continent. A few years ago, we met some of the players from the 1950

:26:27.:26:32.

World Cup, the players who lost that day against Uruguay. They had never

:26:33.:26:36.

ever been able to forget that defeat. It will be even worse for

:26:37.:26:40.

this team because this is the biggest humiliation in the history

:26:41.:26:44.

of Brazilian football. I feel desperately sorry for these players.

:26:45.:26:49.

But also I feel that the medicine, it might be cruel, but it might also

:26:50.:26:55.

be necessary. Brazilian football is operating ludicrously short of its

:26:56.:26:59.

potential. It's resting on its laurels, it's been pointing at its

:27:00.:27:02.

five World Cup wins and saying everything is fine. It isn't fine.

:27:03.:27:08.

Germany have given us the lesson, regrouping after their 5-1 defeat to

:27:09.:27:12.

England, Brazil need to do the same thing. They certainly do. Let's

:27:13.:27:18.

remind ourselves of the emphatic nature of Germany's victory. It

:27:19.:27:21.

started quite early on with Thomas Muller. I mean, there's a block on

:27:22.:27:29.

David Luiz here that's come from the training ground. If you score, it is

:27:30.:27:36.

great. If you lose a goal like this, you will be disappointed. It is well

:27:37.:27:40.

worked. There's four things happen. One, the ball has to come in.

:27:41.:27:45.

Hummels makes the first run, Klose blocks him, Muller pulls round the

:27:46.:27:49.

back, simple finish. Poor marking but well worked. Then we have a

:27:50.:27:54.

record from a goalscorer, beating Ronaldo's record. Pure goalscorer.

:27:55.:28:01.

When the ball comes in, he comes alive. They get lucky there. Static

:28:02.:28:10.

defending. The two centre-halves don't react. Watch when the ball

:28:11.:28:14.

goes in the back of the net, they are on the edge of the box. This guy

:28:15.:28:20.

is a live wire. I can't believe he didn't put it in the first effort!

:28:21.:28:28.

Predator. Great goalscorer. 16 goals in four World Cups. Here is all of

:28:29.:28:30.

them. COMMENTARY: Klose!

:28:31.:28:46.

lead. Klose! He completes his hat-trick. Here comes Klose. It is a

:28:47.:28:49.

goal for Germany. Klose! Miroslav Klose, a splendid save.

:28:50.:29:02.

Klose from the rebound. Bull-back for Klose. It is his eighth goal in

:29:03.:29:06.

World Cup Finals football. Klose will make it two. It is Klose! His

:29:07.:29:12.

tenth in all World Cups. Klose's header. He's got one. Klose is in.

:29:13.:29:19.

Miroslav Klose has given Germany the lead. Klose! Germany - that is a

:29:20.:29:29.

record-equalling goal. Klose scores, an historic goal and Miroslav Klose

:29:30.:29:34.

is the all-time World Cup record goalscorer.

:29:35.:29:47.

goal-scorer in World Cup history. Here is the touch map of his goals.

:29:48.:30:01.

ALAN SHEARER: he's certainly excites me! Has he had an attempt from

:30:02.:30:11.

outside the box? These guys win you games. Right place at the right

:30:12.:30:24.

time. I have lost count! It is important that this junction to give

:30:25.:30:31.

the Germans the credit they deserved. Yes, they moved the ball

:30:32.:30:41.

very quickly. Maybe the keeper should have done better? RIO: I

:30:42.:30:53.

think you have to give the goal-scorer credit. Look at the way

:30:54.:31:01.

they press here. All over them. Calm, cool, clinical finishing. They

:31:02.:31:05.

have incredible belief in themselves. Passing and moving the

:31:06.:31:11.

ball is how you win the game, doing it quickly. Sami Khedira got the

:31:12.:31:29.

fifth goal. Another great hit. He comes running out, misses the

:31:30.:31:38.

tackle, David Luiz. Easy for them. Not great. The thing is, they looked

:31:39.:31:47.

like a team that is well drilled, with a philosophy that they have all

:31:48.:31:52.

bought into. Brazil was a team of individuals. Let's give the final

:31:53.:31:59.

word on this came from a Brazilian, Juninho is with Jason. Unbelievable

:32:00.:32:05.

here at the Estadio Mineirao. Juninho is with Jason. Unbelievable

:32:06.:32:16.

recover? Well, it will be difficult. Some of them I don't think we'll be

:32:17.:32:21.

back to where the Brazilian shirt. There was

:32:22.:32:25.

back to where the Brazilian shirt. them, but it is wrong for us to

:32:26.:32:34.

criticise the players. We saw the Germans teach us how to play the

:32:35.:32:44.

role. We have to learn from that. We need to learn from the seven goals

:32:45.:32:48.

that we conceded. The Germans played that we like to play. We need now to

:32:49.:32:57.

sit back, see what is wrong with Brazilian football. Is there

:32:58.:33:07.

something wrong in the academies? Something wrong with the way we

:33:08.:33:12.

teach? I think a lot of changes will come. What you just said there,

:33:13.:33:19.

Juninho, is fascinating, Germany came here and talk Brazil after

:33:20.:33:27.

rolling lesson. Exactly! Pass, move, straight balls, great control.

:33:28.:33:35.

Without the ball, they get back, organise, go forward as a unit. They

:33:36.:33:41.

taught us how to play the role. Thank you very much indeed, Juninho.

:33:42.:33:50.

I like football. I am a fan of German football. I am happy because

:33:51.:33:57.

football was the winner. I sense they will be talking about

:33:58.:34:13.

this for quite some time. Germany will be playing for a place in

:34:14.:34:17.

history at the Maracana on the Sunday, live on BBC One from seven

:34:18.:34:23.

o'clock. We will have highlights of the match tomorrow between Argentina

:34:24.:34:25.

and Hollands at 11:45 p.m.. COMMENTATOR:, the Argentinian

attacking the -- attacking football. The Dutch are

:35:01.:35:08.

attacking the -- attacking football. we kicked off. This

:35:09.:35:12.

this match has started has changed the feel of

:35:13.:35:27.

It is there! They have equalised! We are playing injury time. It hit the

:35:28.:35:55.

post! The crowd is doing their best to rears the Argentinians. It has

:35:56.:36:09.

gone in! Mario Kempes will take the credit, but I think the defender

:36:10.:36:24.

touched that. Surely now the host nation will take the 1978 World Cup.

:36:25.:36:33.

I bumped into Mario Kempes the other day. Great player, lovely bloke.

:36:34.:36:43.

Another programme to look out for on Friday, Alan Hansen, player and

pundit, a lifetime in the ball. -- a lifetime in football. 22 years as a

pundit, never seen anything like it, 40 years in the game, never seen

anything like it! That is asked for tonight, the night that the

:37:06.:37:11.

Brazilian beautiful game died. Good night.

:37:12.:38:07.

Miroslav Klose scores! An historic goal!

:38:08.:38:17.

Brazil are being humiliated, humbled and taken apart!

:38:18.:38:29.

Sami Khedira, five - zero! Absolute humiliation!

:38:30.:38:33.

Howedes! It is seven!
