Germany Advances to Fourth Straight World Cup Semifinal

Amin Mohammad Jamali/Getty Images(RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil) — Mats Hummels’ early goal was all the Germans needed, as they advance to their fourth straight semifinal by defeating France 1-0.

Hummels scored in the 12th minute when he directed a header off of the crossbar and into the net past French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Hummels becomes the only defender to score two goals this World Cup.

While France lost, it put on a good show with 13 shots on goal, including one in the last seconds of the game by star striker Karim Benzema. German goalie Manuel Neuer was able to get a hand on Benzema’s final shot and deflect it away, sending Germany to its 13th World Cup Semifinal.

Germany will meet the winner of the match between Brazil and Columbia. The semifinal will take place Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. Eastern. You can watch that on ESPN.

Germany Prevails in Extra Time Over Algeria

Martin Rose/Getty Images(PORTO ALEGRE, BRAZIL) — Algeria held tough against the powerhouse Germans, but in the end, the Germans survived and advanced to the World Cup quarterfinals by winning 2-1 in extra time Monday.

Germany got back at it 18 minutes later when Mesut Ozil drilled a shot into the net off of a rebound. Algeria’s Abdelmoumene Djabou scored just a minute later, but it was too late as Germany advanced to the quarterfinals for the ninth straight time.
 

Germany will take on France Friday. The match is scheduled to start at 12:00 p.m. Eastern. You can watch that on ESPN2.

US Loses to Germany, Still Advances to Round of 16

Michael Steele/Getty Images(RECIFE, Brazil) — The United States lost 1-0 to Germany Thursday afternoon at the 2014 World Cup, but still advance to the round of 16.

The U.S., which finished second, went through after Portugal defeated Ghana 2-1 in the group’s other match.

“This is a huge huge step and now we can’t wait until round of 16,” U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said after the match. “Everyone said we had no chance, we took the chance and move on. And now we really want to prove a point.”

Later Thursday at 4 p.m. ET, Belgium — which has already advanced from Group H — plays South Korea, while Russia faces off against Algeria. Again, all three of these teams can still advance to the round of 16, which starts Saturday.

“I’m proud of the group and we still got a lot left in us,” said U.S. goalie Tim Howard, who had five saves. “Today was a tough game, tough conditions.Hats off to Germany. I think they have a chance to win the World Cup that’s how good they are. We had a chance there at the end. We get to the round of 16 it shows how far we’ve come, that we’re not happy just getting there, that we want to progress and we still got a little bit left in us.”
