World Cup 2014: Best XI of the Quarter-Finals with Messi, Hummels and Navas

The quarter-finals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup were mostly cautious and occasionally violent affairs, each punctuated by moments of individual brilliance.

In Rio de Janeiro, Mats Hummels was the star man as Germany triumphed over France in Friday’s first quarter-final, and a few hours later David Luiz proved the hero for Brazil against Colombia.

On Saturday it was Lionel Messi once again running the show for Argentina against Belgium, and in the final match of the round Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas kept the Netherlands at bay until the penalty shoot-out.

There were other key performances during the quarter-final round of the tournament, and over the next few slides we’ll have a look at the last eight’s Best XI.
