Germany advances to World Cup Final

Germany scored five first half goals in the matter of 18 minutes on their way to a 7-1 drubbing of host country Brazil in one semifinal game on Tuesday.   The Germans now face the winner of Wednesday's match between Argentina and the Netherlands in the championship final on Sunday at 2 PM on KBMT-12-ABC.

Miroslav Klose netted against Brazil in the semifinals on Tuesday to become the all-time leading World Cup goalscorer with 16.

Klose, 36, had already pulled level with Brazilian legend Ronaldo when he scored in the 71st minute of Germany's clash with Ghana and went one better in the semis in Belo Horizonte.

The striker -- who became the first player to ever appear in four World Cup semifinals -- put Joachim Low's side into a 2-0 lead with a 23rd-minute strike.
