Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was powerless to prevent France's World Cup exit as Germany advanced to the semi-finals in their place.

A 13th minute header from Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels was enough to end France's World Cup participation at the quarter-final stage.

The German defender cleverly nodded home a free kick just shy of the 15 minute mark to take Jochiam Loew's side into the last four.

France captain Lloris ends the tournament with three clean sheets in five matches, conceding three goals.

Brazil midfielder Paulinho is in action later this evening as the Selecao take on Colombia for the second place in the semi-finals.
