The Shakhtar Donetsk winger has been brought into the team to face Germany in Tuesday's semi-final while Joachim Low names an unchanged side for the clash in Belo Horizonte

Luiz Felipe Scolari has chosen Bernard as the man to replace Neymar in the Brazil starting line-up for their World Cup semi-final against Germany.

The 21-year-old has been selected to step in for the Barcelona forward after he suffered a fractured vertebra during the Selecao's 2-1 quarter-final win over Colombia last Friday.

Dante also comes in for the suspended captain Thiago Silva as Scolari announced an otherwise identical XI to the side that overcame los Cafeteros in the last round.

Joachim Low, meanwhile, has made no changes from the team that beat France 1-0 in their last-eight encounter, meaning Miroslav Klose will get the chance to break Ronaldo's World Cup goalscoring record from the start agains the host nation.

Brazil starting XI: Julio Cesar; David Luiz (c); Maicon; Dante; Fernandinho; Marcelo; Oscar; Luiz Gustavo; Bernard; Hulk; Fred

Germany starting XI: Neuer; Hoewedes; Hummels; Lahm (c); Boateng; Khedira; Schweinsteiger; Ozil; Kroos; Klose; Muller
