Brazil v Germany: line-ups
Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is without the services of Neymar and captain Thiago Silva this evening and has chosen to replace the pair with Bernard and Dante.
The Bayern Munich man was expected to replace Silva but Bernard’s inclusion is a big surprise and the Shakhtar Donetsk ace will get the opportunity to help Brazil into the World Cup final.
Luiz Gustavo also comes back into the team following suspension in place of Paulinho.
BRAZIL: Júlio César, Marcelo, Maicon, David Luiz, Dante, Fernandinho, Luiz Gustavo, Hulk, Fred, Bernard, Oscar.
GERMANY: Neuer, Lahm, Boateng, Hummels, Höwedes, Khedira, Schweinsteiger, Müller, Kroos, Özil, Klose.
