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...
