A battered and bruised Brazil team takes on a stretched but solid German team in the first of the two semi-finals at the FIFA World Cup. The dream of lifting the trophy is now within touching distance but still it could be far away for either team. The prize for winning such a huge encounter is a place in the final of the World Cup which will be played in the historic Maracana Stadium on Sunday July 13th.
