Brazil’s Pyrrhic Victory

Brazil were able to beat Columbia, but only at a great cost. Neymar will not be able to play in the rest of the World Cup due to a broken vertebra. Let me now break the game down for you. Thiago Silva opened the scoring in the 7th minute to put Brazil ahead. Then in the 69th minute David Luiz netted Brazil’s second, 2-0. Columbia wasn’t going down without a fight though. James Rodriguez scored a penalty in the 80th minute. It was not enough though and Brazil will now advance to play Germany in the semi finals.
