FULL-TIME: Brazil 2-1 Colombia

It's all over. Brazil have reached the semi-finals!

Heartbreak for Colombia who left it just too late on the night.

James Rodriguez, who was a star earlier in the tournament, exits the stage in tears...

04 Jul 23:54
90 + 3' - A Colombian free kick is fired into the box, but goes out for a goal-kick...
04 Jul 23:52

90 + 2' - Corner for Colombia but Ramos' header is wide of goal...

It is greeted by a huge cheer from the partisan crowd...

04 Jul 23:51
90 + 1' - Brazil with a rare surge up-field, but Hernanes' cross is too deep and goes out for a goal-kick...
04 Jul 23:50
90' - FIVE MINUTES of additional time will be played. Can Brazil hold on? Because it's been all Colombia for the last 10 minutes...
04 Jul 23:48

86' - Worries for Brazil as Neymar is stretchered off.

Henrique, a defender, replaces him...

04 Jul 23:46
85' - Paulinho off for Brazil, replaced by Hernanes.
04 Jul 23:44
84' - Colombia launching wave after wave of attack now. Brazil merely trying to hang on...
04 Jul 23:43
Watch James Rodriquez send Cesar the wrong way...
04 Jul 23:42

80' - Colombia make one final replacement, Quintero on for Cuadrado.

Also, Hulk is off for Brazil and Ramires on.

04 Jul 23:40

79' - James Rodriguez scores past Cesar who dives the wrong way!

Colombia have been thrown a lifeline here!

04 Jul 23:39
79' - GOAL COLOMBIA!
04 Jul 23:38
77' - Also a YELLOW CARD for Cesar.
04 Jul 23:38
76' - PENALTY to Colombia after Julio Cesar takes out Carlos Bacca inside the box...
04 Jul 23:34
Watch David Luiz' amazing strike...
04 Jul 23:33
72' - Neymar almost makes it 3-0 but his left-footed shot from just outside the box is away to the left...
04 Jul 23:32
71' - YELLOW CARD for Colombia's Mario Yepes. Colombia losing the plot now...
04 Jul 23:31
70' - Another change for a shell-shocked Colombia, who switch Gutierrez for Bacca.
04 Jul 23:30
67' - David Luiz scores after a simply remarkable free kick from about 20 yards outside the box! Brazil 2-0 up.
04 Jul 23:29
67' - GOAL BRAZIL!
04 Jul 23:28
67' - YELLOW CARD for Colombia's James Rodriguez for a rash foul just outside the Brazilian box.
04 Jul 23:27
66' - Mario Yepes thinks he's scored as the ball ends up in the Brazil net, but the referee calls them back for a foul and the official's flag was also up for off side....
04 Jul 23:26

64' - YELLOW CARD for Brazil captain and goal-scorer Thiago Silva after he tries to dislodge the ball from Colombian 'keeper Ospina just as he's about to kick from hand...

This means Silva will miss Brazil's next game.... if they progress....

04 Jul 23:24
63' - Neymar's shot is safely into the hands of the Colombian 'keeper.
04 Jul 23:23
62' - Neymar is fouled by Cuadrado just outside the Brazilian box....
04 Jul 23:21
61'- Brazil still with a healthy 58% possession overall, although Colombia have enjoyed a good last 10 minutes.
04 Jul 23:19
58'- Colombia's Freddy Guarin receives a great ball from Rodriquez just outside the Brazilian box, but his volley is poor and way too high...
04 Jul 23:13
53'- A cross into the box by Marcelo is well taken by Colombian 'keeper Ospina, who is keeping his team in the game...
04 Jul 23:12
52'- Neymar's delivery towards David Luiz doesn't find him as a Colombian defender heads it behind. However, the referee gives a goal-kick, instead of a corner...
04 Jul 23:11
51'- A Brazilian free kick about 15 yards outside the box...
04 Jul 23:10
50'- Cuadrado swings in a free-kick but Brazil manage to clear...
04 Jul 23:09

47'- Cuadrado darts down the inside-right channel and is upended by the dangling leg of Luiz. The referee's not giving it, though.

Then Fernandinho shoulder-charges Ramos into the hoardings behind the Brazilian goal on the left. It's totally unnecessary, as Ramos had run the ball out of play.

But the referee is doing nothing...

04 Jul 23:05

45'- Colombia's Víctor Ibarbo has been replaced by Adrian Ramos.

Will this change make a difference for Colombia? Ibarbo was largely ineffective up front, on the left...

04 Jul 23:05
Welcome back for the second half!

HALF-TIME: Brazil 1-0 Colombia

What an utterly dominant half by the hosts. By far their best performance of this year's Soccer World Cup. But the Colombians aren't out of it yet, and will be pleased to be only one goal down.

04 Jul 22:47
45'- One minute additional time added before the break.
04 Jul 22:46
43'- Neymar's shot is just over the bar though and Colombia can breathe. They'll be happy to go into the break only one goal down...
04 Jul 22:45
42'- Neymar fouled by Camilo Zuniga just outside the Colombian box...
