World Cup 2014: Germany defeats France to make semifinal!

Germany booked its place in the World Cup semifinals for a record fourth time in a row after defeating France 1-0 in Rio de Janeiro on Friday.

Mats Hummels headed the only goal of the game after 12 minutes to secure victory for the Germans in a scrappy last-eight contest.

France, beaten by West Germany in the 1982 and 1986 semifinals, came closest to equalizing when Mathieu Valbuena brought a fine save out of Manuel Neuer.

Germany will play either host nation Brazil or Colombia in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday. The two South American teams clash in Fortaleza later Friday.
