The second semi-final. Action from the clash at the Arena de Sao Paulo in Brazil, as the line-up for the biggest match in football was confirmed. Eventual champions Spain were the victors in the corresponding fixture in South Africa four years ago, with Carles Puyol's rare goal against Germany in the 73rd minute giving them their third consecutive 1-0 win of the knockout stage, but those two teams had contrasting fortunes in the early stages this time out. The Spanish were thrashed 5-1 by 2010 runners-up the Netherlands and then eliminated following a 2-0 defeat against Chile, although they did restore some pride after a thumping 3-0 victory over Australia in the final game, while Joachim Low's men got under way with a 4-0 win against 10-man Portugal - Thomas Muller scoring a hat-trick - before a 2-2 draw with Ghana in their second group fixture

Netherlands v Argentina - Coverage of the second semi-final from the Arena de Sao Paulo in Brazil, as the line-up for the biggest match in football is confirmed. Of the four teams to have reached the semi-finals, the Dutch are the only nation not to have previously won the World Cup, though they have reached the final on three occasions, most recently in South Africa four years ago. Despite being the top goal scorers during the group stage of this tournament, Louis van Gaal's men had to rely on penalties to overcome Costa Rica last time out, having squandered a host of opportunities in normal and extra time to see the contest finish 0-0. Argentina are appearing in their first semi-final since finishing as runners-up in 1990, and are still to find their best form at this tournament, but that hasn't prevented them from winning all five of their previous matches, and only conceding three goals in the process. In Lionel Messi they have arguably the most talented player in world football, and should he help lead his country to their third World Cup victory he will undoubtedly be considered one of the all-time greats at international level, alongside his fellow countryman Diego Maradona. Presented by Adrian Chiles, with commentary by Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend, and analysis by Martin O'Neill, Fabio Cannavaro and Lee Dixon. In the event of extra-time and penalties, subsequent programmes are subject to change













In complete contrast to Germany's 7-1 annihilation of Brazil 24 hours earlier, both teams played cautious football at the Arena Corinthians and there were few chances in a goalless 90 minutes.
The stalemate continued in extra-time and it took a shoot-out to split the teams, as Argentina won 4-2 to spark scenes of celebration.
There was no option to bring on Tim Krul like the Dutch had done to great effect against Costa Rica as Louis van Gaal had already made his third substitution early in extra-time, and it was to be Sergio Romero rather than Jasper Cillessen who emerged as the hero.
Romero saved from Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder and it was Maxi Rodriguez’s spot-kick which sealed Argentina's victory.
Lionel Messi: Kept quiet
Van Gaal had been boosted ahead of kick-off by the news that Robin Van Persie had overcome an upset stomach and was fit enough to make the starting XI, but the Manchester United striker had little impact.
Aware of the madcap first half that took place in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday night, both teams were unwilling to take risks.
Van Persie's opposite number Lionel Messi could not get the game going either, mainly because he was being tightly marked by Nigel de Jong, who was a surprise starter.
Sneijder banged a volley two yards wide for the Dutch 12 minutes in, but little else of note happened for the rest of the half.
When Vlaar brought down Enzo Perez on the edge of the box, the Netherlands held their breath as Messi strode up to the ball, but he fired his free-kick straight at Cillessen.
Messi was not up to his usual best. He was dropped from corner-taking duties after a couple of wasted efforts. His replacement, Ezequiel Lavezzi found Ezequiel Garay, but he headed over after diving bravely at Vlaar's raised foot.
Javier Mascherano looked dazed following a clash of heads with Georginio Wijnaldum, but he was back in action after two minutes' worth of treatment.
Sneijder then needed treatment from the Dutch physio just before half-time after being clattered by Martin Demichelis.
Robin van Persie: Frustrating evening
Bruno Martins Indi was booked just before the half-time whistle for fouling Messi, and was replaced at half-time as Van Gaal brought on Daryl Janmaat.
Sneijder blasted a free-kick high over the bar early in the second half, before Janmaat did well at the other end to prevent Gonzalo Higuain from having a clear attempt on goal from Ezequiel Lavezzi’s cross.
Arjen Robben began to look more dangerous after being starved of service in the opening 45 minutes, but chances remained few and far between as the pattern of the game stayed largely the same and neither side showed too much adventure.
Lavezzi had a shot from the edge of the area blocked by Vlaar following a promising break, before the flag was raised against Van Persie as he tried to hook in a volley from Janmaat’s cross.
The flag went up incorrectly moments later at the other end as Higuain turned a first-time effort into the side-netting from a tight angle, which had some in the crowd thinking the deadlock had been broken.
Sergio Romero: Saved two penalties
When there were free-kicks in decent positions the opportunities were wasted by both teams as poor crosses were delivered, while Cillessen had no problem in keeping out a speculative shot from distance from Marcos Rojo.
The impressive Vlaar cut out a menacing cross from substitute Sergio Aguero, before Robben was denied by a wonderful block from Mascherano as the best opening of the night came just before the whistle for 90 minutes.
The Bayern Munich latched on to a clever Sneijder back-heel to burst into the box past Martin Demichelis, but Mascherano covered brilliantly to slide in as the shot was unleashed.
Robben’s trickery caused further problems for the Argentina defence as extra-time began, while the introduction of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar for Van Persie as Netherlands’ third substitution took away the possibility of Krul coming on later as he had done against Costa Rica.
Gaps started to appear as legs tired, but defences continued to dominate and Janmaat cleared a cross from Rodrigo Palacio before it could reach Aguero.
Palacio had a header saved by Cillessen in the second period of extra-time and Maxi Rodriguez scuffed an effort straight at the keeper, before the drama of penalties left Argentina jubilant and Netherlands heartbroken.

Brazil v Germany - Coverage of the first semi-final, which takes place at the Estadio Mineirao in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The host nation have only faced European opposition once en route to the last four, that being a 3-1 victory in the opening fixture against Croatia, and this time they face arguably the strongest team that continent has to offer, and will have to do so without the services of the injured Neymar and suspended Thiago Silva. The Germans reached this stage courtesy of a hard-fought 1-0 victory over France in the quarter-finals, with centre-back Mats Hummels scoring the only goal of the game. In reaching this stage, the Germans have set a World Cup record in reaching the semi-finals at four consecutive tournaments, but they will look to improve on each of those performances having finished as runners-up in 2002, and failing to progress to the final in 2006 and 2010. In the event of extra-time and penalties, subsequent programmes are subject to change

The hosts started relatively brightly, but found themselves behind after just 11 minutes when Toni Kroos’ corner picked out Thomas Muller unmarked inside the area and the Bayern Munich man side-footed beyond Julio Cesar.
Klose then doubled the Germans' lead, slotting home the rebound after Cesar had pushed away his initial effort, and his record 16th goal in the tournament - taking him ahead of Ronaldo - signalled an unthinkable capitulation for Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side.
Kroos hit a quick-fire double as he drilled a strike past Cesar with the outside of his boot following Philipp Lahm’s cut-back, before making it four after Sami Khedira’s unselfish pass capitalised on some lacklustre Brazilian defending.
Thomas Muller: Netted opener
Khedira then got in on the act himself when he guided Mesut Ozil’s pass into the bottom corner after David Luiz’s error typified an abject showing from Scolari’s men, who were booed off at the break.
Brazil looked to restore some pride in the second half as Oscar and subsitute Paulinho were both denied by Manuel Neuer, while Muller was prevented from making it six as Cesar tipped his effort over the bar with a fine save.
Germany replaced Klose just before the hour mark and it was his replacement, Chelsea's Andre Schurrle, who added a sixth when he converted Lahm's low cross from inside the box with a simple tap-in.
Schurrle then added his second and Germany's seventh of the night with a smart finish off the underside of the crossbar. Oscar grabbed a late consolation goal but the final whistle soon sounded as Low's side reached the final for the first time since 2002.
The Germans will now go into Sunday's final at the Maracana to face Argentina or the Netherlands on the highest of highs.
Miroslav Klose: Wrote name into history
With Brazil looking to take inspiration from their missing talisman, Neymar, the opening period was always going to be a testing one for Germany, with the partisan crowd baying every Brazilian touch and tackle.
Marcelo was cheered wildly after sending a 25-yard shot skimming a couple of yards wide, but there was a frantic feel to it, as though the Neymar emotion had spilled over into a frenzy, with Germany capable of punishing any slackness.
That almost happened early on when Ozil delivered a sweet cross for Khedira to volley only for his shot to strike Kroos.
A break by Khedira then led to the corner from which Germany took the lead in the 11th minute. Kroos took it, and it was straightforward enough but Brazil's marking went into meltdown and Muller slotted it home low past Cesar while Luiz beat the ground in frustration.
Marcelo burst into the Germany penalty area and a pinpoint sliding tackle by Lahm stopped him in full stride but Brazil's high tempo only served to make them vulnerable on the break and Germany made them pay again, this time Klose becoming a World Cup's record-breaker.
A delightful passing move saw Muller lay the ball off and although Cesar stopped his first effort, Klose buried the rebound.
Andre Schurrle: Completed rout
Two minutes later and it was 3-0, Lahm's cross going all the way across the area for Kroos to slam home left-footed from 18 yards.
Another two minutes, another goal. From a goal-kick Fernandinho was robbed by Khedira who unselfishly played in Kroos for a virtual tap-in for 4-0.
By this time Brazil fans were in tears and a few leaving their seats, but the German machine marched on mercilessly.
Less than half an hour gone and the hosts were 5-0 down. Mats Hummels strode forward and Ozil, who had come alive in this match, set up Khedira for a first-time finish.
Neuer had been barely tested in the first half but only he prevented Brazil getting on the scoresheet, first defying Oscar and then Paulinho.
Brazil: Left devastated by defeat
Cesar had to be at his best to tip over Muller's curling effort from 25 yards, but Germany were not to be denied and Lahm's penetrating cross was struck home by substitute Schurrle.
It was Chelsea midfielder Schurrle who piled on the agony, a breathtaking finish into the top corner after pulling down Muller's instinctive cross.
Ozil should have made it an embarrassing eight but slid wide when through on goal before Oscar's crisp finish in the last minute provided a glimmer of light in the darkness.
