Colombia had their World Cup dreams dashed on Friday after falling to host country Brazil 2-1. It was a hard fought game and a great run for the Colombian team.
Brazil scored quickly and was up 1-0 before the 10 minute mark. They tacked on another goal about 20 minutes into the second half. Colombia was gifted a penalty kick after Brazil’s keeper Julio Caesar fouled Carlos Bacca. Bacca then converted the ensuing penalty kick to bring the score to 2-1.
They had chances late but couldn’t convert and so Colombia was sent packing. Judging by the pictures, I would say the Colombian fans are quite proud of their boys.
