Brazil coach Tite says the "ghost" of their 7-1 mauling by eventual champions Germany in the 2014 World Cup semi-finals still haunts the Selecao, as the teams prepare to meet today at Berlin's Olympic Stadium for the first time since that fateful night.

After getting well beaten by Brazil, Stanislav Cherchesov says his Russian Federation side must step it up a notch in their next World Cup warm up match against France on Tuesday.
