Update: Brazil survive against Colombia to advance

Brazil face what could be their toughest challenge so far in the World Cup with a quarterfinal match against Colombia. While the Brazilians needed penalties to squeak by Chile, Los Cafeteros continued their impressive run with a convincing win over Uruguay.

Colombia's James Rodriguez has burst onto the radar of every soccer fan on the planet with his tremendous run of form so far in Brazil. He's scored in every match his team has played so far, and has six goals in their last six games overall. There are no injuries or suspensions for head coach José Pékerman to worry about, leaving him free to field his strongest side.

Brazil have not looked super impressive at times, but they've gotten the job done so far. While their on-field play has disappointed at times, their home-field advantage has been every bit as intimidating as expected. They enter this quarterfinal match without Luis Gustavo, who is suspended, and with a wounded Neymar, who has been dealing with knee and thigh problems. Head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has hinted that Paulinho will replace Gustavo.

The winner of this match heads to the semifinals against the winner of the France vs. Germany match.
