Ferdinand: Germany will cause Brazil 'big problems'Mesut Ozil is a potential match-winner for Germany
Rio Ferdinand believes that the host nation’s defence will be its undoing in the World Cup semi final.
He said: "Brazil’s dodgy defence — has attacking flair when it needs solidity.
"This is where they’ll get undone. I believe Germany will win with their runners — Thomas Mueller, Mezut Ozil and Mario Goetze — finding the spaces behind the full-backs and between Brazil’s defence and midfield. They’ll cause problems, big problems," said Ferdinand, in his Daily Mail column.
