Brazil take on Germany on Tuesday 8th July, 2014, with kickoff at 21:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.

The home nation from 2006 take on the home nation in the 2014 World Cup this evening with pretty much as much at stake as there can be in any match these 22 men will have played. For the Brazilians the absence of Neymar is a blow to their ambitions, but if it proves a fatal one many will suggest that is the fault of the management and planning committees, who failed to provide a plan B.

The Germans also look devoid of an alternative when things aren’t going their way, but these two teams are likely to have a contest rather than one side playing for penalties.
