Germany are through to the semi-finals of the World Cup after a 1-0 victory over France at Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro. 

Mats Hummels scored the only goal in a fairly uneventful match and Manuel Neuer put in another strong effort in net to halt Les Bleus. 

Germany will next face the winner of Colombia-Brazil. 

Hummels put the Germans ahead off of a set piece in the 12th minute, perfectly placing a header past Hugo Lloris. Toni Kroos delivered an excellent service for the Borussia Dortmund man. 

Neuer came up big for the Germans in the 33rd minute, making a nice save to deny France's Mathieu Valbuena. 

Karim Benzema nearly equalised in injury time for the French, but Neuer was able to deny him.
