FULL TIME: Brazil 2-1 Colombia

A rather eventful and unfortunate half for Colombia as the Brazilians surge further on the top of Group B with 9 points from 3 games. Colombia defended well in the first half and went into the lead with a stunner from Luis Diaz. 

Brazil went ahead with a controversial goal as the ball hit the referee and Firmino headed in after the Colombian defenders were stopped in their tracks. The Colombians lost their concentration and eventually conceded in the 101st minute as Casemiro headed in from a Neymar corner to take all three points from the scruff of Colombia's reach.

06:47 (IST)24 JUN 2021

57' Neymar goes solo with a darting run and has a go at the goal from distance but the attempt is wide. Restlessness and frustration creeping into the Brazilian attacking line-up. The Colombian defence has been absolutely exemplary so far.

55' CLOSE! A perfectly placed long ball from Casemiro finds Neymar who makes a well-timed run but the Brazilian striker fails to connect the aerial ball and only manages to have the faintest of volleyed attempts at goal with Ospina between the sticks. The scorers are untroubled.

06:43 (IST)24 JUN 2021

53' Gabriel Jesus goes solo down the Colombian defence and tries to curl it inside from the outside of his boot but the ball is well wide of the target.

The Colombian defence has been absolutely unrebreakeable. 

06:13 (IST)24 JUN 2021

06:13 (IST)24 JUN 2021
