Match Preview

Brazil and Colombia have never met at a World Cup Finals although they play each other regularly in CONMEBOL world cup qualifiers.

Sadly, the last three meetings have been scoreless draws.

The Match

To be sure that this game didn't end without a goal, Brazil started early.

Goalscorers 1:0
Thiago Silva opened the scoring for the World Cup hosts in the seventh minute, from a Neymar corner.

Although Brazil controlled much of the game there was always a degree of nervousness; when an equaliser could let their South American rivals back into the game.

Goalscorers 2:0
Fans in the Maracana had to wait until the 68th minute to feel a sense of relief, when David Luiz rifled in one of the free-kicks of the tournament; dipping in under the crossbar.

With a goal disallowed for offside, Colombia showed they were not totally out and continued to push for two goals.

Goalscorers 2:1
With ten minutes left to play, James Rodriguez sent Carlos Bacca through; only for the Colombian substitute to be felled by Julio Cesar. Rodriguez scored from the penalty spot to give Colombia a glimmer of hope.
