As per facts Brazil have reached the quarterfinals in each of their FIFA World Cup game but have not gone further this round but when two goals from defenders powered Brazil past Colombia at Estadio Castelao, Fortaleza in the Quarter finals it changed the history. Although Brazil had a difficult start in the initial phase of the tournament and narrowly escaped elimination, they had the home-ground advantage and the 2-1 victory over Colombia paved their way straight to the semi-finals.
The sensational 2-1 victory over Colombia is credited to Thiago Silva and David Luiz’s free kick, but the match also witnessed star striker Neymar being carried off due to a fracture in third vertebra. Thiago Silva will miss the semi finals against Germany since he got a yellow card midway through the second half.
