  • The final whistle is blown and it's Germany who progress into a record fourth World Cup semi-final in a row. The 1998 champions are out - they pushed and pushed in the second half but Germany dealt with the threat brilliantly and Mats Hummels was the star of the show.

  • Great save! France send the ball forward and it breaks to Benzema in the left channel. He attempts a shot into the roof of the net but Neuer gets a strong hand to it and that's the final chance gone. It really should have been squared to the players waiting in the middle.

  • Pogba wants a free kick in midfield but the decision goes the other way and Boateng sends it forward before Debuchy is fouled by Muller.

  • Toni Kroos is being replaced by Christoph Kramer.

  • France win a free kick in their own half but Germany are back in shape and Schurrle is fouled when trying to break.

  • There will be a minimum of four added minutes.

  • Just a sense now that France have run their race, but we'll be getting a few minutes added on at the end of the 90.

  • Pogba infuriated after Germany kick the ball away after a free kick is awarded. No yellow card shown to the offender.

  • A great chance for Germany on the break and it's Schurrle again who wastes the opportunity after being found by Muller.

  • Lloris put under pressure and forced to clear straight out of play for a Germany throw on the half way line. Germany now looking to slow things down and Gotze makes his way towards the corner flag. Too early for that?

  • Foul from Schurrle deep in the France half and Lloris will send it forward.

  • A Germany corner is headed away by Koscielny, while France then change Valbuena for Olivier Giroud.

  • The game is opening up to say the least and Germany's latest change see Ozil taken off, with Mario Gotze coming on in his place.

  • The corner is caught by Neuer, who immediately sets up a Germany break. The ball eventually rolls into the path of Schurrle but his left foot shot is rushed and Lloris makes a fine save with his legs.

  • It's a good delivery from Valbuena and the ball bounces off a couple of players before dribbling behind for a corner.

  • Foul from Schurrle on Evra deep into the Germany half and France have a chance to send over a quality cross.

  • A Germany attack breaks down and Schweinsteiger is forced into fouling the breaking Griezmann. Yellow card for the Bayern Munich man.

  • Matuidi penalised for going in with his studs up - thankfully there was no actual contact on Schurrle.

  • Ozil crowded out of it on the Germany left before Howedes fouls Remy.

  • Brilliant block from Mats Hummels, who slides in to prevent Benzema getting a clear shot on goal. France building towards an equaliser after Matuidi now has a shot parried away by Neuer.
