BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil (AP) — Germany coach Joachim Loew has called some of Brazil’s tackling excessive and even brutal and appealed to the referee of the World Cup semifinal to be on the lookout for such robust tactics.

Germany and Brazil play Tuesday in Belo Horizonte.

Loew said on Monday that Brazil was sure to take commitment, passion and emotion into the semifinal but that Germany should not adjust to its opponent and will try to play its own game.

If his team manages to play to its abilities, Germany’s hopes of reaching the final “are not all that bad,” according to Loew.

Loew began the news conference by once again expressing regret that Brazil star Neymar will miss the match because of injury.
