Germany scored four goals in a stunning seven-minute spell midway through the first half as they ruthlessly picked Brazil apart in recording the biggest FIFA World Cup semi-final victory.

The three-time winners led 5-0 by the 29-minute mark in Belo Horizonte, Miroslav Klose doubling Germany's advantage with his record-breaking 16th World Cup finals goal. That came after Thomas Müller's opener and before two quickfire Toni Kroos strikes. Sami Khedira then made if five, with substitute André Schürrle on target twice after the break. Oscar registered a late consolation for the hosts. Argentina or the Netherlands await Germany in their eighth World Cup decider.
