- Second-half turnaround leads Brazil to victory in Kolkata
- Arp gave Germany the lead with a first-half penalty
- Goals by Weverson and Paulinho lead Brazil to semi-final versus England
As the match passed the quarter-hour mark, Germany settled down and looked the better side up to half-time. They would open the scoring from the penalty spot on 21 minutes after John Yeboah was tripped by a sliding Lucas Halter in the Brazil box. Captain Jann-Fiete Arp converted his spot-kick for his joint-leading fifth goal of the tournament.
Yet, it was in the second half that the South American champions turned the match around with two goals in six minutes. Substitute Weverson levelled matters on 71 minutes with a powerful shot off the underside of the crossbar before Paulinho drove home a bullet finish six minutes later, to the delight of the Brazil-supporting Kolkata crowd. The result sent Brazil into a last-four meeting with England in Guwahati on Wednesday.
