Bom Dia from Belo Horizonte!

Three hours before kickoff: Brazil vs. Germany

Beautiful afternoon. Bright sun. Not too hot.

Local sports paper Lance! featured a mask of Neymar, with cutout eyes, and caption: Today, We are All Neymar.

Injury of the Brazilian poster boy is a huge story here. Tens of thousands of fans expected in Neymar No. 10 jerseys.

Meanwhile, Germany is tired of losing in the semis...

Should be fun!
