Vuvuzela sellers just prior to the start of Wednesday's game. They did not do great business, although a few of the plastic horns were sounded.

The vuvuzela seller started the afternoon in a Brazil shirt, but quickly changed to German colours.

German fans were out in force just before the game; by the opening whistle, Spanish supporters pretty much matched their numbers.

Curbside seating, and plenty of tension, for a young German fan.

Spanish fans react to a close play for their team as the game plays on.

Game over: let the flag-waving begin.

Ah, youth: Celebrating for the cameras as Spain closes out Germany 1-0.
