    They have got one! And Germany are furious, which sums up their professionalism.

    It's a soft one too as Oscar gets in through the middle, sidesteps the last defender and buries the shot.

    Sensational.

    What a goal! And applause rings out around the Estadio Mineirao as they just have to accept a wonderful goal from Andre Schurrle.

    It comes from a quick throw-in, Thomas Muller flicks the ball in form the left to find Schurrle, and he cracks a rising shot in at the near post, the ball kissing the underside of the crossbar and in.

    Wow...

    Lovely attack from Germany! Thomas Muller finds space - that's his trademark - out on the right this time, his cross comes over to Mesut Ozil on the left of the area. He looks up and as the cry is for him to shoot, he instead cuts back a brilliant pass to find Sami Khedira arriving at real pace.

    Khedira connects beautifully but cannons the shot into the back of Toni Kroos.

    "This has been Scolari's base system for over a year now, since the pieces started to come together at the start of last June with the entry of Gustavo." he said.

    "Maintaining the formation would be a gesture of faith in his players and in the depth of his squad. Willian has been seen as the first reserve for either Neymar or Oscar. Indeed, before the tournament there was a media push for him to be in the side in place of his Chelsea team-mate.
