Well, that was breathtaking! In a match which pitted two footballing royalties against each other in India's most hallowed venue, Brazil proved why they are favourites to win the title. 

Next up for the South Americans is an equally talented England side who brushed aside Iran's challenge in their quarter-final match.

Fulltime! Brazil with a comeback victory to book their spot in the semi-finals!

That, perhaps, was one of the most entertaining matches of the FIFA U-17 World Cup! Germany looked in command for more than half the match after Jann-Fiete Arp gave his side the lead. Brazil were woeful in front of goal and spurned many chances to equalise. They finally got the breakthrough as Weverson blasted the ball into the roof of the net. Six minutes later, Paulinho sent the crowd wild as he gave Brazil the lead from a rocket of a goal. The Samba Boys absorbed the German pressure late in the match and held on to their lead to book their spot in the semis.

90+3 Germany 1-2 Brazil

Arp with a woeful attempt at goal. His shot goes for a throw. Germany get a free kick in the Brazilian half and Plogmann charges forward to help his attack. He gets his head on it but the ball is cleared and Alan gives chase. Yeboah gets ahead of him and Alan wins it but the referee blows his whistle for a foul.

90` Germany 1-2 Brazil

The fourth official signals for 6 minutes of added time, something which Carlos Amadeu isn't too happy about. Germany have upped the tempo here but Brazil are able to weather wave after wave of German attacks.

86` Germany 1-2 England

Jessic Ngankam and Noah Awuku come in for Germany as Christian Wuck hopes to get his team back on track. The German youngster look disheartened though as Brazil, energised by the goals and backed fiercely by a partisan crowd look to put this match to bed.

81` Germany 1-2 Brazil

Carlos Amadeu is celebrating like a kid on the touchline with his staff as his young guns come from a goal down to take the lead. Paulinho scores a wonder goal and signals towards the sky to thank God, while his teammates celebrate in front of the fans. The "Brazil Brazil" chants ring around the stadium. What a turnaround!

75` GOAL! Paulinho with a screamer! Germany 1-2 Brazil

The comeback is complete! Paulinho with a rocket of a shot from 25 yards out to give Brazil the lead in the match. The Brazilian No 7 goes charging to the stands as the Kolkata crowd get up on their feet to celebrate that absolute hammer of a goal. 

Oct 22, 2017 - 21:31 (IST)

71` GOAL! Weverson equalises! Germany 1-1 Brazil

The Kolkata crowd erupts as Weverson smashes the ball into the roof of the net. The left-back gets on the end of Alan's pass and blasts the ball in the goal. Carlos Amadeu goes wild celebrating and it shows how relieved he must be. 

Preview: A humdinger will be on the cards when traditional football heavyweights Brazil and Germany face off in a marquee quarter-final clash of the FIFA U-17 World Cup at the Vivekananda Yuva Bharati Krirangan on Sunday.

In front of an expected crowd of over 60,000 at the venue which has been revamped for the mega event, both outfits - brimming with individual talents in their ranks - would strive to outshine one another and seal a coveted semi-final berth.

Going by form, Brazil hold the edge after emerging unscathed from the group stages and blanking Honduras 3-0 in the pre-quarters.

The Carlos Amadeu-coached side shipped just one goal in four matches so far, scoring nine.

"Our defensive system starts with our forwards. They are helping us a lot — running and marking. That's why teams are not shooting at my goal that much," says Brazil custodian Gabriel Brazao, who has not conceded any goal in the last 355 minutes since an own goal against Spain in the tournament opener.

Brazao, who plays for Brazilian club Cruzeiro, has also made the highest number of saves so far in the competition with 14 to his name.

In the four games they played so far, Brazil have looked solid up front. If Lincoln, Paulinho and Brenner found the back of the net, midfielder Alan - on the radar of Spanish giants Real Madrid - played the assist maker in chief.

Alan recorded six assists in nine matches at the 2017 South American Under-17 Championships, which was more than any other player.

But in Germany, Brazil would come across their sternest test yet since Spain in their first match.

The Germans looked rather ordinary in the group stages where they suffered a humiliating 0-4 loss to Iran and finished second in their group finished to qualify for the knockouts. But they seem to be peaking at the right time.

In the 4-0 thrashing of Colombia in the round of 16 tie, Hamburg prodigy Jann-Fiete Arp was all over their South American rivals being involved in all three goals his team netted.

Arp struck 36 goals in 44 matches for Hamburg in the under-17 league, emerged the second-highest goal scorer at the under-17 European Championships and, just last month, became the first player born in 2000 to play in the German Bundesliga.

Arp, who has so far scored four goals in the tournament, would be the key for Germany as they confront Brazil's untested defence.

Big-bodied and combative, Arp can sneak in behind his markers and force errors by pressing down on his opponents.

The Germans would miss their attacking midfielder Dennis Jastrzembski due to suspension. Yannik Keitel is still recovering from an injury sustained in their match against Colombia and trained alone on Friday.

Brazil have been traditional favourites in the football-mad metropolis for their style of football and skills, and would feel at home in Kolkata with the large chunk of supporters likely to sway their way, though Germany's superb showing at the world stage in recent times have also earned them a good number of local fans.

The two teams have met only once, in 2011, at the U-17 World Cup. Germany had then edged past the South Americans 4-3 in the battle for the third place.

At the senior level, the two most famous meetings in recent times are Germany's epic 7-1 mauling of their rivals in the 2014 World Cup and Brazil avenging the defeat last year at the Rio Olympics to clinch gold.

Brazil are the more successful team at the under-17 level, winning the World Cup thrice (1997, 1999 and 2003) while the Germans have finished runners-up in the 1985 inaugural edition besides being eliminated by the eventual champions in three of their last four appearances.

Squad:

Brazil: Gabriel Brazao, Lucas Alexandre, Yuri Sena; Wesley, Luan Candido, Weverson, Lucas Halter, Matheus Stockl, Rodrigo Guth and Vitor Eduardo; Alanzinho, Marcos Antonio, Rodrigo Nestor, Victor Bobsin, Victor Yan and Vitinho; Brenner, Lincoln, Paulinho, Vinicius Junior, Yuri Alberto.

Germany: Luis Klatte, Luca Plogmann, Marian Prinz; Dominik Becker, Yann Aurel Bisseck, Jan Boller, Pascal Hackethal, Kilian Ludewig, Lars Lukas Mai, Alexander Nitzl; Elias Abouchabaka, Erik Majetschak, Sahverdi Cetin, Yannik Keitel, John Yeboah; Jann-Fiete Arp, Noah Awuku, Dennis Jastrzembski, Jessic Ngankam, Nicolas-Gerrit Kuhn, Maurice Malone
