Brazil beat Colombia last night and they are in the Olympic Games semifinals. It was a make or break game for Neymar and the Barcelona's star responded with a goal and a very good performance. Brazil's opponent in the semifinals will be Honduras.

Neymar scored in the minute 12 with a great free-kick. Luan, who has been related to Barcelona this summer as an option for the attack, scored the second and last goal.

Sent off?

Colombia's national manager Carlos Restrepo said in his press conference that Neymar should have been sent off for a tackle on Roa in the first half. However, Rogerio Micale said the Colombian players were provoking him: "Neymar was provoked during all the first half. Non stop. He is human. He can't control himself all the time".
