Copa America 2021 BRA vs COL Result: Casemiro, Firmino shine in Brazil’s controversial 2-1 win over Colombia: The Group B match between Brazil and Colombia had full drama which eventually ended with the hosts edging a 2-1 win on Thursday. Trailing 1-0 for most of the match, Brazil equalised with Roberto Firmino’s 78th minute controversial goal. Casemiro then headed a Neymar cross in stoppage time to register a win. Brazil are now on a winning streak of 9 matches and are unbeaten in Copa America and are on top of the Zona Norte.
It was complete heartbreak for Colombia as they opened the scoring with a stunning goal from Luis Diaz in the 10th minute. Although Brazil shared a larger possession they struggled to erase the deficit until Firmino’s goal.
The ball had hit the referee, Nestor Pitana, and it looked like he was going to blow the whistle before he decided to give a play on and Brazil scored. The Colombian team, extremely unhappy with the decision, protested. After a VAR check and a lengthy heated argument, that goal was given a nod.
After that, the tempo of the game changes. In 10 minutes multiple bookings happened. Brazil attacked relentlessly which was finally rewarded in the 100th minute. Casemiro netted the winner with a fine header of Neymar’s corner.
The result is Brazil’s third win on the go to top Group B with nine points. Colombia is second with four.
