Brazil  beat Colombia 1-0 in a World Cup qualifier in Sao Paulo to become the first South American team to qualify for Qatar 2020

Lucas Paqueta got the vital goal 72 minutes into the match with a shot that goalkeeper David Ospina got a hand to but could not stop.

Neymar, meanwhile, was lucky to end the match on the pitch after appearing to square up to the referee in bizarre scenes midway through the second half.

The PSG star, seemingly unhappy with one of the referee’s decisions, ran up to the match official and screamed directly in his face, going on to receive a yellow card – but can count himself lucky he didn’t see red.
