It has been fun covering the game and do join us for the semi-finals on 17th where Brazil take on Honduras and Germany take on Nigeria.

Although Neymar's and Luan's wonderful goals undoubtedly stole the show, the real man of the match was centre-back Rodrigo Ciao who put in an accomplished performance

...

Neymar punches the air in delight as Brazil make it to the semi-finals where they will now face Honduras, who eliminated Argentina in the group stages.

Two beautiful goals from Neymar and Luan were enough on the night as Colombia struggled to break down the Brazilian defence.

...

90+1' The party has already started in the stands! Brazil will definitely make it into the semi-finals now and they are now just two matches away from an elusive first Olympic gold medal

90' There are 2 minutes of added time!

...

83' GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL! Brazil take a 2-0 lead and it is Luan who scores! The Brazilian number 7 picks his spot and curls in a wonderful right footed shot right into the top corner from outside the box. Brilliant by Luan!

Brazil (Neymar, Luan) 2-0 Colombia

...

82' Brazil are just trying to take the sting out of things here as they try to keep the ball for some time, playing simple and short passes

...

80' Colombia make their final change as Andres Roa comes off to be replaced by Arley Rodriguez. Final throw of the dice by the Colombian manager

...

78' Brazil have barely maintained possession in the last 10 minutes, and the home crowd is starting to get pretty nervous in the Corinthians arena  

...

77' The defensive centre-back duo of Ciao and Marquinhos have dealt really well with the threats posed by the Colombian strikers. Ciao in particular has been really impressive, making plenty of clever interceptions

...

75' SHOT! Another long distance shot from a Colombian player goes well wide of the goal. This time it was Lerma attempting to score from 30 yards out

...

73' It is getting pretty tense here as Colombia are looking more and more of a threat here. Can Brazil hold on or will Colombia break Brazilian hearts?

...

70' Excellent tackle by Ciao to deny Borja! The introduction of Borja in the second half has definitely given another dimension to Colombia's attack with the Brazilian defence working much harder in the second half.

...

68' It has not been Gabriel Jesus' game so far and the new Manchester City striker loses possession of the ball again in the opposition penalty area. 

...

67' Brazil make a defensive change as Gabriel Barbosa is replaced by Thiago Maia

...

66' WHAT A SAVE! Neymar chips in a wonderful free-kick which finds an unmarked Ciao,but his header which looked destined for the bottom corner is saved brilliantly by Bonilla. It has been end-to-end stuff in the second half. Brilliant game

...

64' SAVE! Colombia's corner was flicked on by Borja, but Waverton moved quickly to catch the ball. Some nervy moments for the hosts.

...

63' GREAT TACKLE! Borja looked to be on his way for Colombia, but Marquinhos stepped in and made a wonderful tackle to deny the Colombian. The fans certainly loved that tackle!

...

61' The resultant corner is headed across goal by Augusto, but Bonilla was alert and caught the ball to deny Brazil any chance to double the lead

...

61' Brazil play some good football and they finally win a corner much to the relief of the home fans who were concerned by Colombia's enterprising play after the restart.

...

58' SHOT! A quick interchange sees Pabon have some space for the shot, but his effort goes well above the bar. Encouraging signs for Colombia though as the first murmurs of dissent are heard from the home crowd

...

55' SAVE! Neymar shows some brilliant skills and plays in Luan, however, the Colombian GK Bonilla is quick of his line and makes an excellent save. A much more open and exciting second half

...

53' Was that a penalty? Luan strikes a shot which definitely hits the Colombian player on the hand, but the referee decides it was unintentional and waves the penalty appeals away

...

51' SAVE! Another save by Waverton! Pabon this time, thunders a shot from outside the box and it is again beaten away by the Brazilian GK.Colombia have had more shots in the first 7 minutes of the second half than the entire first half

...

51' SAVE! Augusto is robbed off the ball, and the substitute Borja unleashes a shot which is punched away by Waverton! Promising start to the second half for Colombia

...

50' SAVE! Neymar finds some space outside the box and unleashes a shot. The shot takes a deflection, but it is well saved by the Colombian GK.

...

48' Colombia have started the second half brightly and they will be hoping to test the Brazilian GK more this half

...

47' Colombia win an early corner, However Pabon's corner is overhit and eludes Borja who was coming around at the back post

...

46' Brazil get us underway in the second half!

...

Colombia make two changes as Preciado and Barrios come off to be replaced by Borja and Perez

...

We are back! 

...

The second half is just a few minutes away. Neymar looks really determined to drag Brazil across the line, but the Brazilians are only 1 goal ahead and Colombia will be looking to cause the hosts some problems in the second half

...

The first half comes to an end! Brazil are in front thanks to a wonderful free-kick from Neymar. The game got pretty bad-tempered towards the end of the first half, and the Brazil crowd will be relieved that Neymar has not been injured after the Colombian players repeatedly fouled the Barcelona star.

...

HT: Brazil (Neymar) 1-0 Colombia

...

45+4' FOUL! Another foul by Colombia! This time Gabigol is the victim. Very poor by the Colombian players here who have already conceded an incredible 14 fouls!

...

45+2' Yellow card! This is getting ridiculous! Preciado rightly goes into the book for another foul on Neymar. It is more like a rugby match at the moment.

...

45+1' We have 5 minutes of added time!

...

45' This is absolutely unbelievable! Neymar is fouled again and this time, it is by Preciado. Sad to see the Colombian players using brawn istead of brain to stop the Barcelona star

...

44' Yellow card for Barrios! The Colombian players just cannot handle Neymar at the moment and this time, it is Barrios who gets a yellow card for a late challenge on the Brazil captain. 

Sooner or later there is going to be a red in this game, if it continues like this

...

42' Surprisingly not a single player is booked and the game gets underway after the referee Cakir has a stern chat with both Neymar and Gutierrez 

...

41' Things are getting out of control here! Neymar probably frustrated by the earlier foul slides into a bad tackle right in front of the dugouts. It leads to a huge fight between the Colombian and Brazilian players right in the middle of the pitch. Everyone other than the goalkeepers are involved in this fracas. Ugly scenes.

...

39' Yellow card for Lerma! Bad foul by Lerna on Neymar who was speeding away

...

37' BLOCK! A chance opened up for Colombia's Pabon, but Rodrigo Ciao blocks the shot to deny Colombia an equaliser

...

35' SHOT! Some beautiful football by Brazil sees the ball fall to Renato Augusto just outside the box whose side-footed goes well wide. It has been a good performance by the host nation so far

...

32'  Brazil are looking pretty comfortable here and the host nation will want to score another goal to make themselves comfortable
