Germany set off for World Cup semi-final

Germany's World Cup squad are heading to Belo Horizonte for the semi-final against Brazil after leaving their base in Santa Cruz Cabralia on Monday.


Germany's World Cup squad have set off from their base in Santa Cruz Cabralia and are heading to Belo Horizonte for their biggest test yet, a semi-final against the hosts Brazil.

What a stage that would be for Miroslav Klose to score his 16th World Cup goal and overtake Ronaldo as the tournament's highest ever goalscorer.

Thomas Muller is fast catching up too, he's scored four times already here, he is two behind James Rodriguez in the race for the Golden Boot.

Joachim Loew's side beat France in the quarter-final and have been boosted by Brazil's problems. Their talismanic striker Neymar is out of the tournament with a fractured vertebra and they will be without suspended captain Thiago Silva.

Bastian Schweinsteiger says Brazil are not what they once were, he'll hope there has been a change in Germany's mentality too. This is their fourth semi-final in a row, a record but they've lost the last two. They've tended to feel the pressure in recent years but for once that pressure is well and truly more on their opponents
