You know, I am re-watching the game right now to see if I remember things clearly. What I remembered was a high paced game with Brazil being more in control of the first half and Colombia the second.

A couple things in the first 20 minutes:
Neymar was fouled in the fourth minute and how much he was limping in the beginning
Hulk looks really good, beating Chile regularly
Chile is basically counter-attacking at this point, as Brazil controls the ball as is much more dangerous so far...oh, there's the first goal. Yeah I remember this game, but good to watch again and see more details.

I assume the rest will go as I remember. Brazil controls, Chile gains control as Brazil tires, then they are both exhausted in extra time then that shot off the cross bar out of nowhere.

Oh wow, there's Chile's goal...I forgot how bad that mistake by Hulk was where Chile got their goal. What a bad mistake. As Ian Darke said, "What a stunner, as Brazil were in total control of things."

They are been held until after the final on Sunday, out of respect for the teams and staff preparing for the closing ceremony and big game. The word being spread, mainly on social media, to recruit people is calling for pacified protests, not riots. No violence, no vandalism, just people protesting for a better country.

Re: 'a better country'

I hope Brazil fashions something about that loss in such a way that they won't focus simply on the negative result , i.e. shame, loss of face etc etc. The big boys have a lot of work to do in solving some of the country's problems.

The prediction of the final by the WC mouse. In the knock out stage he only went wrong with Brasil vs Colombia and Brasil vs Chile matches
