Host nation Brazil advanced to the semi-finals of the World Cup, holding off South American counterparts Colombia 2-1 on Friday.

They'll next face Germany, who dismissed France earlier on in the day. 

Brazil took the lead on Friday behind Thiago Silva in the seventh minute, as the captain pounced on a corner that Colombia failed to deal with.
