A second-place group stage finish on goal difference certainly does not appear to have checked Brazil's momentum, with the South American outfit impressing at this tournament.

A narrow victory over Colombia has set them up with a mouthwatering semi-final tie - and they'll hope to upset the slender odds against them to reach the showpiece game.
