Brazil saw off Colombia’s fightback as they progressed to a World Cup semi-final against Germany thanks to goals from Thiago Silva and David Luiz.

The hosts took an early lead when Neymar’s corner found captain Silva, who guided the ball in with his knee.

Brazil added a second shortly after the hour mark when Luiz struck a brilliant free-kick from long range.
