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.

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.
