Brazil vs Colombia Highlights

Brazil vs Colombia Key Highlights as Selecao finish second in Group D following 1-1 draw

Brazil were held to a 1-1 draw by Colombia in their final match of Group D at the 2024 Copa America, but both sides progressed into the quarter-finals. Raphinha put the Canaries in front after 12 minutes into the kick-off, but Daniel Munoz equalized for Los Cafeteros in the added minutes of the opening stanza.

Colombia finished with twice (6) as many shots on target as Brazil (3) but were lacking in the cutting edge to make them count. However, the draw had no impact on their standings at the top of Group D, as they won the group regardless, by virtue of goal difference. James Rodriguez and co. now face Panama in the quarter-finals whereas the Canaries take on Uruguay.
