Minute   Description
That's all from this friendly in Rio, where Brazil ran out winners. Thanks for joining us. Goodbye!
This should prove to have been a worthwhile workout for both sides, though. There were plenty of debutants on show, some of whom really impressed, and the two coaches may just have been given something to think about for when the big names return.
All in all, a great night's work for Brazil. A win for the hosts, thanks to Dudu's goal, and money raised for the families of the Chapecoense victims.
90'+3 FULL-TIME: Brazil 1-0 Colombia.
90'+2 Camilo is involved again! He finds Diego, who himself gets to the byline in the hope of picking out a teammate. The Brazil midfielder gets his cross in, but it's tame and the goalkeeper pounces.
90'+1 Keen to retain this clean sheet, Rodrigo Caio crashes in on Berrio and accepts the yellow card.
A scramble in the area! Geromel is there ahead of his goalkeeper, and Brazil just about get the ball clear as Colombia try to force the ball through a crowded box. With just two minutes of stoppage time remaining, that might well be it.
89' CHANCE! What an opportunity to level it! A Colombia free-kick falls in the area and Berrio is alone, with the ball at his feet, just a couple of yards out. Aiming back across goal, the substitute screws wide. A golden chance.
88' The Brazil fans cannot believe this! Rodriguinho dummies the ball for Diego to shoot on the edge of the box, but the stand-in skipper is clattered before he can control the ball. The referee, just yards away, sees nothing wrong with the rather blatant foul.
86' Jorge bustles past Bocanegra, who's finally being tested, and picks out Camilo. The lively winger cuts inside, but shoots well wide.
84' Diego has improved over the course of this second half, and is now showing off his shimmying talents. Camilo and Gustavo Scarpa are the men making an immediate impact, though, as Brazil look to secure the win.
82' CLOSE! Camilo, on his debut, is certainly making an impression! He skips between two Colombia defenders, nudging the ball through the legs of one, and finds Diego, then Gustavo Scarpa, who is fouled. Gustavo Scarpa takes the free-kick, and whips it inches wide of the near post. Great effort. Lovely football.
80' Brazil think they're in, with Camilo, formerly of Chapecoense, looking to make an immediate impact... The offside flag, though, cuts him short as he bears down on goal from the left.
79' Dudu, the goalscorer, is off. Camilo replaces him.
78' SAVE! A rare break for Brazil, with Balanta lying injured on the turf. His man, Gustavo Scarpa, raced through, but the shot was ultimately too close to Gonzalez.
76' The standout for Colombia, meanwhile, has been Bocanegra, but his set-piece delivery lets him down on this occasion after his side had forced a foul. Weverton claims and holds after the original ball comes to nothing.
75' Rodrigo Caio, after an early mistake, has really grown into this game. He stamps out another Colombia attack on the left-hand side of his defence, before coolly shuffling back into the middle and reorganising. It's been an impressive performance.
72' Rangel fancies himself to make an immediate impact, but his speculative shot from distance flies past the far post without worrying Weverton.
70' Diego now shows his talent for the first time, leading a Brazilian attack and finally finding Rodriguinho. On the turn, though, the subsequent shot is quickly blocked, before Gonzalez grasps the ball.
69' Colombia take off their captain, Abel Aguilar, to bring on Gustavo Cuellar.
Lucas Lima was excellent in the first half, but Gustavo Scarpa comes on now.
Michael Rangel takes Borja's place.
67' The pace of the game has slowed right down in this second half, and, with further substitutions sure to be on the way, that shows no sign of abating. Colombia still look the better side, but they trail.
65' Vladimir Hernandez and Balanta immediately combine to force a corner, but Weverton meets the delivery with a firm punch to clear, and the hosts snuff out the remaining danger.
63' Diego Souza has shown a few nice touches for Brazil, but his time is up. Luan is on.
62' Farid Diaz is off, too, to be replaced by Leyvin Balanta.
Jonathan Copete takes his leave, with Vladimir Hernandez on.
61' Despite the goal, Brazil haven't really got going in this second half. Diego is so far struggling to adapt to the pace of the game, while Lucas Lima is not having the same influence he did before the break.
59' Crucial header away from Rodrigo Caio! A cross from the left looked to be reaching Borja in the middle until the Brazil defender just got a touch on it. Good defending.
57' Berrio comes forward again for the visitors. This time he seeks out a teammate in a more promising area, and his low, swinging cross just evades those in the area. That's better.
56' Fagner's deep cross forces a corner on the opposite side, but Diego's set-piece is easy pickings for Gonzalez. The delivery gave Brazil's assembled attackers no chance.
54' Berrio, looking to make a positive impact from the bench, does just the opposite. Leading an attack on the right, his switch to the opposite wing cruises out of play without threatening to get anywhere near a Colombia player. Disappointing.
52' SAVE! Colombia have responded to going behind in fine fashion, and Weverton has to be agile to dive away to his right and keep out Bocanegra's free-kick. A header from the subsequent corner loops over, but there is still a suspicion that Brazil are giving their opponents the ball too often.
49' The referee is happy to wave his card again, this time in Lucas Lima's direction.
47' GOAL! What a start to the second half for the hosts! Dudu grabs the goal, profiting on a rebound to nod home after Gonzalez could only parry a stabbed close-range Diego Souza effort.
46' It's the end of this match for Willian Arao, too, as Rodriguinho comes in.
Orlando Berrio is also on, replacing Gutierrez.
Santiago Montoya takes Torres' place.
KICK-OFF: We're off again in Brazil!
Jorge is also on, taking Fabio Santos' place.
Diego is the man to replace Robinho.
The players are back out on the field, with some changes. Notably, Robinho has been replaced...
Colombia have been the better side so far, but Brazil have threatened themselves at times. Lucas Lima and Torres were the two key men out there, so it will now be interesting to see what - if any - changes are made by the coaches.
45'+2 HALF-TIME: Brazil 0-0 Colombia.
Robinho, the star of this Brazil team, is going to end this half lying on the pitch. The hosts continue their attack, but the skipper is in some pain, clutching his back.
44' The flag brings another Colombian attack to an end, but it was a lovely flowing move, with Gutierrez popping up on the left and ultimately shooting into Walace's block from an offside position.
43' Now Willian Arao tries his luck from around 30 yards, but cuts across the ball and, like Torres, troubles no-one.
41' Another effort from Colombia, this time through Torres, but it's dragged a long way wide of the near post from distance on the left.
40' Perhaps understandably, in an international friendly with a number of regulars missing, the final pass is lacking for both sides. Attacks are consistently being cut short in the middle, to the frustration of both sets of forwards.
37' CHANCE! The ball falls kindly for Robinho, 20 yards out and in the centre of goal, but, with defenders advancing, he dummies the shot. Skipping past a couple more challenges, the former Real Madrid man eventually collects the ball again to the right of goal inside the area, but can only swing a shot wide.
35' POST! So close to the opener! Mateus Uribe meets a Torres cross from the right with a firm header, but can only direct his effort against the face of the post. Weverton gratefully grasps a mishit rebound.
34' With the tackles heating up, Geromel, too, is booked.
33' Visiting captain Abel Aguilar is the first to go into the book for a high challenge on Dudu.
32' A rugged challenge on Willian Arao hands Brazil a free-kick. Lucas Lima delivers onto the head of Rodrigo Caio, and while the defender was flagged offside, he will be disappointed to have seen the ball bounce past the far post.
30' Fabio Santos and Lucas Lima get in one another's way, and the break is on again for Colombia. Just as Brazil must limit their errors, though, the visitors must work harder to profit on these opportunities. A poor pass to Borja slows momentum and the opening is gone.
27' SAVE! Lucas Lima is the star of the show so far! He plays an extended one-two with Dudu, taking down a chipped pass and battering towards goal, but finds David Gonzalez blocking his route with firm hands.
26' Fagner has shown plenty of energy on the right-hand side for Brazil, but he's closed out by fellow debutant Tesillo, who's similarly made a good start.
24' Walace steps into a challenge that in any other game would surely be a booking, but still fails to stop a Colombia counter. Rodrigo Caio, though, lunges in ahead of Torres and kills the move dead. Good defending again, but Brazil need to keep the ball better when they go forward or they will be punished eventually.
21' CHALLENGE! Unbelievable play all round! Torres threads a stunning pass in behind for Gutierrez, leaving Rodrigo Caio completely lost. However, if the defender was caught napping by the original delivery, he recovered well, snapping at the forward's heels to snuff out the opportunity.
20' The game has just settled down again after that flurry of attacking intent. Colombia are keeping the ball from their hosts rather well at present.
18' A few jeers for Borja as he goes down on the edge of the Brazil area. The referee is not impressed, and neither are the home supporters.
16' Colombia are more methodical in their approach, with Macnelly Torres and Teofilo Gutierrez combining nicely while lacking the punch of their opposite numbers.
14' CHANCE! Lucas Lima and Robinho are linking up beautifully. The former tees up the latter to cross, with the ball finally dropping for Willian Arao. Falling onto his left, though, the Brazil midfielder cannot keep his shot down.
11' CHALLENGE! Superb defending to keep Dudu at bay. Lucas Lima's bite in the tackle and fine, threaded pass had set Diego Souza away, and he in turn slipped in his fellow forward. Just as Dudu was lining up the shot, though, William Tesillo came storming back to get something on the ball.
9' After Brazil's early manipulation of the ball, it now appears they are the side looking to counter on Colombia's carefully constructed attacks. Robinho has led a yellow charge on a couple of occasions already.
7' SAVE! There's the first opening! Robinho and Lucas Lima swap passes in fine style, but the move swiftly comes to an end with Willian Arao's slack pass and Colombia break. Miguel Borja runs in behind and drags a finish towards the corner, with Weverton just getting something on the shot to turn it around the post. Close.
6' A first ball into the box, from Colombia and Daniel Bocanegra, is easily dealt with. Brazil come again, but Fagner is offside on the right. Both sides look happy to slowly settle into this game.
4' It's a slow start so far, here. The hosts are happy to keep the ball, with Walace and Lucas Lima getting plenty of touches in the middle of the field.
2' Brazil quickly win the ball and build in possession, but the forward pass from debutant Fagner is easily picked up by a Colombian defender.
1' KICK-OFF: The visitors get us under way!
An emotional rendition of the Brazilian national anthem brings the pre-match preparations to an end, and, after a minute's applause, we'll be ready for the off...
And here come the players! Robinho leads out the hosts in their famous yellow shirts, while Colombia adorn a change blue strip.
As the players prepare, there have been a number of presentations taking place on the pitch, with Chapecoense's crest displayed in the middle of the field and the survivors of the tragic crash in attendance.
Colombia: Gonzalez, Bocanegra, Felipe Aguilar, Tesillo, Diaz, Torres, Abel Aguilar, Uribe, Copete, Gutierrez, Borja.
Brazil: Weverton, Fagner, Geromel, Rodrigo Caio, Fabio Santos, Willian Arao, Walace, Lucas Lima, Robinho, Diego Souza, Dudu.
With the fixture falling outside of FIFA's international window - and the European leagues in full swing - only South American-based players have been called upon for this one.
This match has been organised to raise funds for Chapecoense, the Brazilian club who had players, backroom staff and directors among the 71 people to tragically lose their lives in a plane crash in November. The team had been travelling to face Colombia's Atletico Nacional in the Copa Sudamericana final.
