The tournament is quickly coming to a close, with the final quarterfinal matches taking place. After today, only four matches remain. However, we should see some good ones. Will the Belgians take control of their destiny? Will Costa Rica continue their amazing run? Follow along with us.
Yesterday in Brazil
The day began with a highly-anticipated, though underwhelming 1-0 win for Germany over France.The French flair dried up in front of Die Mannschaft. Germany had a few chances to seal the deal late, but failed to score. However, the result was all that was needed to get Germany to their fourth straight semifinal.
In the second game, Brazil held on for a 2-1 win over Colombia. Even when Brazil went up 2-0, it was still a nervy finish for the hosts. The game was bogged down by fouls, but curiously few cards. One card that was given was shown to Thiago Silva, and he will miss the semifinal against Germany. The Brazilians will also be without Neymar.
