  • Full time here and that result never looked in doubt. Germany were in control throughout the clash, and Pepe's dismissal in the first-half hardly helped. An easy 4-0 win for Joachim Low's side. Thanks for joining me!

  • More like it from Ronaldo as he hits a wonderfully-struck free-kick goal-bound, but it's expertly palmed away by Neuer who denies Ronaldo a World Cup goal.

  • Two minutes of added time as Portugal get a free-kick from 30 yards out.

  • Portugal continue to chase their German counterparts as the ball is kept comfortably between Low's players.

  • Ronaldo feeds the ball into Eder on the edge of the area, but Howedes times his tackle excellently and the danger is once again averted.

  • Germany continue to look threatening as they keep the ball comfortably away from the Portuguese backline. Bento's side must be eagerly awaiting that full-time whistle.

  • Portugal get a free-kick 30 yards out and Ronaldo, expectedly, hits it at goal. But he attempts to go under the wall and it's easily blocked - summing up Ronaldo's night so far.

  • The answer, for the meantime, is no. The corner drifts in and Mertesacker clears it easily. A highly comfortable second half for Germany.

  • Ronaldo fires in a shot from 20 yards out but it's deflected and goes out for a corner to Portugal. Can they salvage a consolation goal?

  • The hat-trick hero Thomas Muller is taken off and replaced by Lukas Podolski (Germany).

  • Schurrle got beyond the Portuguese full-back and drilled in a cross which could only be parried away by Patricio, right into the path of Muller who hit it high into Portugal's net.

  • GOAL TO GERMANY! Thomas Muller hat-trick makes it 4-0!

  • Germany bass the ball around easily to the sound of cheers from their fans, but jeers from the opposing fans.

  • Nani fires in on goal and Neuer parries out to Eder, who takes it beyond Howedes and is taken down in the area by the German defender. Boos ring around the stadium as the referee waves away Portugal's appeals.

  • Been a considerably quiet second half as Portugal have, quite succesfully, limited Germany's chances.

  • Shkodran Mustafi comes on for the injured Mats Hummels (Germany).

  • After jumping with Eder, Mats Hummels lands awkwardly on his knee and is in some pain. Looks set to replaced immediately...

  • The resulting corner is dealt with well by Portugal, but Germany continue to dominate possession - who are keeping their discipline and limiting the amount of long-range shots.

  • Portugal's corner is cleared and Germany break on the counter through Schurrle, who plays a great ball through to Gotze on the edge of the box - who takes his time, cuts inside and shoots on goal but his shot is blocked and bounces over the bar for a German corner. Great counter-attacking play.

  • Moutinho plays a great ball through to Nani in the German area, who cuts inside but his shot is well blocked. Portugal get a corner after Pereira's deflected follow-up shot.
