THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT
We appreciate you following our coverage of this highly entertaining semi-final in Sochi. Join us again tomorrow on FIFA.com as we begin the build-up to the third-place play-off between Portugal and Mexico and, of course, that eagerly anticipated final: Chile v Germany.
POST-MATCH PRESS CONFERENCE
See what Low and Osorio had to say about that exciting last-four tie in Sochi.
"Marc [Andre ter Stegen] made some wonderful saves. They had their chances and we had to run a lot. By no means was it an easy win. It was a really difficult game."

"It was a really intense match, because Mexico are technically very strong as well. But we did exactly what we had planned to do. The Mexicans always want to impose their game on their opponents and that's what we wanted to prevent from the start. We wanted to dominate early on and attack them."
"I am glad that I was able to help the team with my two goals. But the main goal was making the final. We were not so strong in the group stage against Chile, we spoke about that and wanted to do things differently today."
Plenty to enjoy in the best moments of this open and highly entertaining semi-final in Sochi.

"Our way of playing is very aggressive. We try to get forward all the time and we paid for that. They are fair winners but the scoreline would seem to suggest they were way better and I don't think that was the case."
Juan Carlos Osorio
"We already played them in the group stage and we know they are good, they are one of the best teams in the competition I have seen so far. I hope the fans get a great final."
