On July 8th, the Semifinal between Brazil and Germany is honored with a nice Google Doodle.
Brazil were able to get by their continental rivals Colombia on Friday, but not without losing two of their best players. Neymar was kneed in the back by Juan Zuniga and was left with broken vertebrae in his back, which will keep him out the rest of the World Cup. The team’s captain, Thiago Silva, picked up his second yellow card of the tournament and will be forced to sit the semifinal.
Germany will be making their fourth consecutive appearance in the semifinals when they take the field on Tuesday. Even though they have been able to get to this point consistently, they have not gotten past it since reaching the final in 2002.
