The World Cup semifinals are here, and as PitchBook’s coverage of the tournament starts to wind down, it’s time to take a look at the last few contenders left standing. If the football fortunes of Germany and Brazil play out as their PE and VC investments over the past few years have, then there may be some broken hearts in Brazil and exultation in Germany, as the latter trumps the former in both deal count and funds closed. But even with Neymar injured, this World Cup has seen surprise after surprise, so who knows what’ll happen?
