    Hosts beat Colombia, set up Germany semi

    Brazil have set up a FIFA World Cup semi-final with Germany after a thrilling 2-1 victory over Colombia in Fortaleza. The hosts were indebted to their two centre-halves, Thiago Silva and David Luiz, for providing the goals at the Estadio Castelao that ultimately rendered James Rodriguez's late penalty a mere consolation. History suggested that Luiz Felipe Scolari's side started the game as massive favourites, with Colombia having won just two of the teams' 25 previous meetings - and none since 1991. However, Jose Pekerman's side had arguably been the only team in the last eight to have genuinely impressed in the Round of 16, whereas Brazil - who had exited in the quarter-finals at the last two World Cups - struggled badly against Chile.

    From the outset though, there was a pace and purpose to the hosts' play that had been missing from most of their previous showings, with Colombia pinned back in their own half. And after Neymar had narrowly missed out with a free-kick, the goal that Brazil's early play merited arrived on seven minutes. Like the day's earlier match, it was a set piece that provided the breakthrough, and a defender who provided the finishing touch, with Thiago Silva stealing in at the back post to bundle home Neymar's corner with his left thigh. The Castelao erupted as the goalscorer wheeled away to accept the acclaim, and Brazil's captain would continue to prove a key player at both ends. Soon after scoring, he deflected a goal-bound shot shot from Juan Cuadrado into the side-netting and, later, he thwarted the Colombians when they were charging towards goal with a three-on-one advantage.

    Brazil remained the dominant team, though, with their first-half performance easily the best we have seen from them at this World Cup. They would, in fact, have taken a 2-0 lead into the interval had it not been for a superb double save from David Ospina, who first denied Hulk and then Oscar as Brazil continued to apply pressure. Colombia did improve markedly after the break and, with nerves beginning to show in the hosts' play, Pekerman's side did have the ball in the net - only for Mario Yepes' 67th-minute effort to be ruled out. And though the net was bulging again just two minutes later, it served only to nudge Los Cafateros closer to the exit.

    The goal was one of the best seen at Brazil 2014 thus far, with David Luiz sizing up a 35-yard free-kick before sending a sweetly struck shot over the wall and into the top-right corner. It was executed with the Paris Saint-Germain defender's trademark set piece technique - side-footed, with minimum curl - and it left Ospina without a hope. But if Brazil hoped that the strike could enable them to coast calmly towards the final whistle, they had another thing coming. With 10 minutes remaining, the hosts conceded a cast-iron penalty when Julio Cesar brought down substitute Carlos Bacca. James Rodriguez assumed responsibility for the kick and coolly waited for the keeper to commit before side-footing low into the net, ensuring the nerviest of finishes.

    Scolari's side held on, though, and can now look forward to a mouth-watering meeting with the Germans on Tuesday at Belo Horizonte's Estadio Mineirao.

    Brazil-Colombia: Quotes

    Luiz Felipe Scolari, Brazil coach
    We didnt have a problem with tiredness after the Chile game and the team made a full recovery, as you could see in the first half. If wed have got the second goal then, it would have settled our nerves a bit more. The goal we conceded came about because we gave away possession and were caught off balance. They really committed men forward, with three strikers and James dropping into space. Our front men had to do a lot more running too, but we got there in the end. Weve still got two steps to go but weve got the ability to get there.

    David Luiz, Budweiser Man of the Match (BRA)
    Id like to congratulate both teams on what was a great game. Colombia have had a great World Cup and have played some really good football. Today we really went for it, though, and played the kind of football everyone likes watching, with a lot of intensity and going for goal the whole time. As for my free-kick, Ive been waiting all year for one like that, with Chelsea too, and Willian came up and had a joke with me about it. Im delighted it came in this game. I hit the ball well and it was lovely to watch it going in, moving like that, which made it very hard for the keeper.

    Jose Pekerman, Colombia coach
    We knew that Brazil would have learned something from the Chile game and that theyd play better. We went into this game without conceding in our last match and then we went and let one in straightaway. It allowed the Brazilians to relax a little and put a bit of pressure on us, causing us to stop playing the kind of football weve been producing up to now. Maybe we were too keen to get the equaliser and we lost our balance as a result. We improved in the second half, though, and moved the ball around faster. Our players started to worry Brazil, and a lot of the time they just cleared the ball as fast they could. In the end, we began to make our intensity count and we started to create more chances. Their second caught us off guard but we kept on fighting and came very close.
