The millions who watch Brazil vs. Colombia live stream in one of the 2014 World Cup quarterfinals, are in for a treat. This may be the beginning of a South American rivalry, with the host trying desperately to move on.
Brazil has waited 64-years for the opportunity to redeem itself in front of their loyal fans and on Friday, they will get another chance to show that, even though this is a young team, it is ready to play at this level. Neymar and company had to battle very hard to dispose of Chile in the round of 16.
The dramatic match was defined in favor of Brazil, but it looked very dicey for a moment and the whole nation, plus the millions watching overseas, held their collective breaths, until that last penalty was safely in the net. The players were seen collapsing onto the field with a mix of exhaustion and unreleased emotions, Neymar cried tears of joy and relief.
If you watch Brazil vs. Colombia live stream, you will have a good chance of witnessing another very dramatic game. The match will also be a clash between two of the most exciting emerging stars in football, Neymar and James, both 22-years-old.
Some experts believe Colombia is good enough to become the next World Cup champions, but first they will have to defeat a very determined, if tired Brazil. Colombia holds a slight advantage against the locals in that they won their round of 16 match during regulations, while Brazil had to battle Chile into the dreaded penalty kicks.
Even though we’ve seen glimpses of Neymar’s incredible talent — Brazil’s rivals have guarded him well — many are not too impressed with the Verde Amarela’s style of play. This Brazil is not as consistent and coordinated as previous squads and the results have shown that it is also vulnerable.
Colombia on the other hand has been one of the surprises of the 2014 World Cup and in contrast to Brazil, appear to be cool, calm, and collected under pressure. James scored, perhaps the most beautiful goal of the tournament in the match against Uruguay and sealed the former champion’s fate with another of his very good goals.
Many questions remain ahead of this very important South American classic, and they will all be answered this coming Friday, with all eyes on the two stars Neymar and James.
