Raphinha put Brazil ahead with a powerful free kick that soared over Colombia’s wall and into the top corner. Although Brazil seemed set for victory, Colombia soon managed to turn quick counterpressing and turnovers into chances. Jhon Cordoba came inside from his right wing position and shot low past Alisson for a goal just before half time – his goal giving them hope against an opponent with superior power.Brazil Vs Colombia

Colombia pressed their advantage throughout the second half, as Davinson Sanchez thought he had equalised with a header off James Rodriguez’s cross but this effort was disallowed after review of incident.Brazil Vs Colombia

Vinicius Junior was given his second yellow card of the tournament for a challenge on Rodrygo and could miss out on qualifying for a quarterfinal if Brazil make it through. Eder Militao of Real Madrid and West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta from West Ham also have yellow cards, giving Dorival Junior an option of replacing him with Endrick on his first start at this tournament and moving Rodrygo over to his left side – see here to view their full team squad.Brazil Vs Colombia

Colombia’s counterattack has been absolutely phenomenal as they have taken Brazil by surprise with some outstanding counter-attacking. Their players often get into dangerous positions quickly, making it harder for Brazilians to break them down through fantastic movement.

Cordoba and Sanchez appear to be engaging in some sort of wrestling match inside the box, as both are trying to engage each other on opposite sides of defence. Joao Gomes and Jefferson Lerma become involved as well, leading to them receiving yellow cards for their involvement in an altercation that generates yellow cards as a result.Brazil Vs Colombia

Diaz had an outstanding opportunity to put Colombia ahead through a free kick from the right, but his shot is offside and was eventually confirmed by VAR.Brazil Vs Colombia

Martinelli and Diaz almost play Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette through but Alisson easily claimed his low cross. On the other side, Raphinha tries his luck from deep, only for it to fly harmlessly over the bar! Colombia have much work to do but are extremely dangerous opponents! Brazil will need to significantly up their game if they want to beat Colombia – although even one point will do nicely; Colombia would certainly take that victory with open arms.

Brazil Vs Colombia  | First Half

Santa Clara was always promising a thrilling game and it certainly lived up to its billing. Colombia were often careless but always found ways past Brazil’s defense – led by James Rodriguez’s set piece threats such as an early free kick that clipped off the bar and turning and sliding pass to Munoz who made an incredible run through an opening before shooting past Alisson Becker for an equaliser before half time.Brazil Vs Colombia

Brazil have shown great improvement since that first half, with Rodrygo showing great threat down the right flank and Vinicius making life difficult for Colombia’s full-backs. But Brazil remain vulnerable in open play as they struggle to find a consistent passing rhythm and get it into their attacking third.

Deivier Machado had the chance to put the visitors ahead from a free kick on the edge of the box, but his strike missed its target by some distance. Meanwhile, they received another scare as Raphinha made a run toward goal before shooting, forcing Vargas dive deep to save it from going in.

Brazil Vs Colombia | Second Half

The game remains tightly-contested with both sides having good opportunities. Colombia’s forward players are making an impressionful showing as they use the ball to make space and run with it themselves, creating space while taking risks with their passes.

Raphinha nearly scored another after the break but his shot went wide. When sending in a cross from the right, Johan Mojica cleared it off the line but soon after was replaced by Luis Duaz from Colombia while Vinicius Junior made his entrance for Brazil.

Rodrygo attempts to send James Rodriguez an inviting pass but is met by strong defensive pressure and turned away by them before making a run for himself, only to be muscled off the ball by opposition defenders.

Colombia have an excellent opportunity to win, but Camilo Vargas must make a clutch save to secure victory for his side. Although an expert goalkeeper, Vargas must step up on this occasion.

Brazil must gain at least one point from this game if they want to advance from Group E of this World Cup tournament. A win would put them atop of their group; with Costa Rica currently leading Paraguay 1-0 with a superior goal difference, a defeat for Brazil may see them leave after just two matches at this event – that would be extremely disappointing, yet let’s hope they can find a way past Costa Rica and advance through to reach quarter finals of such an important competition!
