Brazil qualified for the World Cup with a goal against Colombia

Brazil is the fourth team to guarantee its presence in the 2022 World Cup after Qatar (the host country), Germany and Denmark.

Lucas Paqueta scored the Brazil national team goal in the 72nd minute from a superb pass by Neymar.

Brazil was the best party during the events of the first half, and the most dangerous opportunity was Danilo’s ball that bounced off the left post in the 35th minute.

Colombia posed a threat from the counter-attack, and Luis Diaz’s shot next to the left post in the 38th minute was the most prominent opportunity.

The half witnessed violence from both sides of the Colombian players towards the Brazilian players, which led to Neymar’s objection to the referee on more than one occasion.

With this result, Brazil leads the qualifiers table, which includes 10 teams with 34 points, 9 points behind the second-placed Argentina, while Colombia is in fifth place with 16 points.

The Brazilian national team entered the match with the following formation.
