It's not a huge surprise that Germany and Brazil find themselves facing off in the first World Cup semifinal (4 p.m. ET, ESPN). What is surprising is the path both teams have traveled, with neither looking particularly dominant or impressive throughout the tournament. Further proof that playing attractive soccer is great, but winning is better.
Both teams were able to win their quarterfinal matches in normal time, so fatigue shouldn't be a major issue. Brazil will be without both Neymar (injury) and Thiago Silva (suspended), while Germany are hoping Per Mertesacker can get over an illness.
This will be the 22nd meeting between the two nations, with Germany having only won four of those matches.
