Expect to see 1000s of ‘We are all Neymar’ masks in the Mineirão

Brazil take on Germany on Tuesday in the Mineirão in Belo Horizonte for a place in the World Cup final.
Luis Felipe Scolari’s team will have to make do without injured super star Neymar, and captain Thiago Silva who is suspended. Bayern Munich’s Dante is expected to come in for Silva. With defensive midfielder Luis Gustavo returning from suspension, it is likely that Tottenham’s Paulinho will make way. Chelsea player, Willian, is favourite to replace Neymar. But Scolari could yet surprise the Germans. Against Chile, the Brazil coach threw in Maicon in place of Daniel Alves. But the Barcelona right back could make a return against Joachim Löw’s team.
Brazil (probable): Júlio César, Daniel Alves (Maicon), David Luiz, Dante, Marcelo, Luiz Gustavo, Fernandinho, Oscar, Willian (Paulinho), Hulk, Fred
Coach: Luiz Felipe Scolari
Germany (possible): Neuer, Lahm, Boateng, Hummels, Howedes, Schweinsteiger, Khedira, Kroos, Ozil, Klose (Gotze), Muller
Coach: Joachim Löw
Date: 8 July 2014
Kick-off: 17:00 (Brasília) 21:00 (London)
Venue: estádio Mineirão, Belo Horizonte, Brazil
Officials: Marco Rodríguez, Marvin Torrentera, Marcos Quintero (All México)
