The semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil get underway on Tuesday, with the hosts in action against Germany.
Brazil had qualified for the last-16 as Group A winners and overcame Chile to book their place in the quarter-finals, where they saw off the challenge of fellow South Americans Colombia.
Brazil now face Group G winners Germany, who beat France in the quarter-finals having seen off Algeria in the round of 16.
Wednesday’s semi-final sees Netherlands, who beat Costa Rica in a penalty shoot-out in the last round to advance to the last four, take on Argentina, who beat Belgium in the quarter-finals.
The winners of the two semi-finals will advance to Sunday’s World Cup final, while the losing semi-finalists will meet on Saturday in a play-off for third place.
