Colombia vs Brazil World Cup Qualifying CONMEBOL (1-1)

Colombia vs Brazil World Cup Qualifying CONMEBOL (1-1)”

Brazil coach Tite was happy with his team's performance despite seeing their nine-match winning streak in World Cup qualifying end against Colombia on Tuesday.

But Argentina's failure to take all three points left them fifth in the standings with two matches remaining - out of the top four spots which brings direct qualification for the finals.

Another man tussling for top honours in France this year, Neymar, was unable to similarly get on the scoresheet despite an inventive, all-action showing.

Adenor Bacchi, or Tite, has made a tremendous turnaround since taking over the Brazilian team in 2016.

Tuesday's clash was thankfully free of the hostility that has marked recent clashes between Brazil and Colombia, dating back to that controversial World Cup quarter-final back in 2014.

Brazil are coming into the game having won their last eight games in World Cup qualifying.

Selecao continued to threaten and they went close again in the 29th minute when Roberto Firmino forced David Ospina into a fine save.

Willian scored for Brazil in first-half stoppage time.

Though Colombia lie second in the qualifiers, goals have been a problem for them. Colombia's lone goal came from a brilliant header in the 56th minute by Radamel Falcao in the second half. Just two players saw the yellow card in a game that never threatened to veer out of control, with Dani Alves on the Brazil side and Colombia's Edwin Cardona receiving bookings.

Manchester City's Fernandinho will replace Casemiro in midfield, while Liverpool's Firmino will take the place of Gabriel Jesus up front.

Sandro has developed into one of Europe's most lauded full-backs at Juventus, and his original omission shows the strength and depth of the Brazil squad.
