Bastian Schweinsteiger accuses Brazil of tackling "over the limit" in Friday's World Cup win against Colombia.

Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has warned Brazil over their tough tackling ahead of Tuesday's World Cup semi-final.

The host nation booked their place in the last four with a 2-1 win over Colombia in what proved a feisty encounter in Fortaleza on Friday.

Luiz Felipe Scolari's side committed no fewer than 31 fouls throughout the win, and Schweinsteiger has urged Tuesday's referee to be mindful of the South Americans' antics in Belo Horizonte next week.

"I am all for a healthy hardness but some of Brazil's fouls were over the limit," he told reporters.

"Brazilians are not only football magicians, hard tackling is part of their game. We have to be careful and so does the referee."

Tuesday's encounter kicks off at 9pm.
