The first two quarter-finals are over and we have our first semi-final as the World Cup sambas towards it's conclusion in nine days' time.

A below-par France were outdone by a Mats Hummels header while hosts Brazil continued their march to the final with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Colombia.

The Germany squad were out in force after the win - take note of Thomas Muller in particular - while supermodel Gisele wore her Selecao colours proudly. And, of course, no WOTT would be complete without Rihanna's latest thoughts on the tournament.

Elsewhere, some of England's contingent are making the most of their time off before pre-season by going to Los Angeles or TGI Friday's. Whatever takes your fancy, I guess?

So, among the celebrations and commiserations of another action-packed day in Brazil, we present Word on the Tweet!

'WE DID IT!'... Germany beat France to reach semi-finals
