Brazil’s Julio César – the hero vs Chile

Brazil take on Colombia on Friday in Fortaleza for a place in the semi-finals of the World Cup. Luiz Felipe Scolari’s men made it through by the skin of their teeth against Chile in the last sixteen and Colombia will be an even tougher test.
Defensive midfielder Luiz Gustavo is suspended and will be missing for Brazil. Tottenham’s Paulinho should be the replacement.
Colombia are at full strength.
The winner of the tie will face either France or Germany in the semis on 8th July in the estádio Mineirão in Belo Horizonte.
Brazil (probable): Júlio César, Daniel Alves, David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Marcelo, Fernandinho, Paulinho, Oscar, Hulk, Fred, Neymar
Coach: Luiz Felipe Scolari
Colombia (possible): Ospina, Zuñiga, Zapata, Yepes, Armero, Sanchez, Aguilar, Cuadrado, James Rodríguez, Jackson Martínez, Teófilo Gutierrez
Coach: José Pekerman
Date: 04/07/2014
Kick-off: 17:00 (Brasília) 21:00 (London)
Venue: estádio Castelão, Fortaleza, Brazil
Officials:  Carlos Velasco Carballo, Roberto Alonso Fernandez, Juan Yuste (All Spain)
