Brazil Beats Colombia to Secure World Cup Semi-Final Place
BBC – Brazil secured a World Cup semi-final against Germany with victory over Colombia on a night of gripping tension and passion in Fortaleza.
Captain Thiago Silva set Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side on the way with an early goal, and Brazil looked to be set for a comfortable passage into the last four after David Luiz’s brilliant second-half free-kick.
In a magnificent atmosphere built on a cascade of colour and a wall of sound, new World Cup star James Rodriguez set up a thrilling finale when he pulled a goal back from the penalty spot with 10 minutes left.
In a frantic closing phase, Colombia were unable to force the chance that could have brought extra time, and it is the hosts who will meet Germany in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday, a game which will be live on BBC One.
