Bernard will replace injured star Neymar in Brazil's starting lineup against an unchanged Germany side in their World Cup semifinal, while Dante comes in for suspended defender Thiago Silva.

Meanwhile, Luiz Gustavo returns from suspension to replace Paulinho, who started against Colombia in the quarterfinals. 

Bernard appeared as a substitute in Brazil's first two matches against Croatia and Mexico, while Dante makes his first appearance of the tournament.

Should Brazil need a spark in a match, Bernard is likely the man who gets that shot.
Shakhtar Donetsk winger Bernard replaces the injured Neymar for Brazil against Germany.

Maicon again gets the nod at right-back over Dani Alves, who started Brazil's first four matches.

Neymar will miss the rest of the World Cup after fracturing a vertebra in his back against Colombia.
