Presented is an official match pennant the players entered with from the World Cup FIFA Copa Do Mundo. This one is special because there are only one or two made for each match and they are carried out by the team on to the pitch. The blue pennant itself is embroidered throughout and has a central logo with five stars above it. It showcases the details of the match and measures 12.75″ x 17.5″ (sans tassels).
The match-up was held on 7/4/14 and featured Brasil vs. Columbia in the quarterfinals.
The two teams had met in 25 previous matches, but never in the FIFA World Cup.This was the first time Colombia had reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup. Brazil midfielder Luiz Gustavo was suspended for the match due to accumulation of yellow cards.
Brazil took the lead in the 7th minute, when Neymar’s corner was turned in from close range by Thiago Silva.
They doubled the lead in the 69th minute when David Luiz scored directly from a long range free kick. Colombia reduced the deficit with 10 minutes to go, when James Rodríguez converted a penalty kick, awarded after substitute Carlos Bacca was fouled by Brazil goalkeeper Júlio César.
Neymar was kneed in the back by Colombia defender Juan Camilo Zúñiga in the 88th minute, which resulted in the striker’s withdrawal from the match. Subsequent medical evaluation discovered a fractured vertebra, forcing the Brazilian to miss the remainder of the tournament. Brazil advanced to the semi-final, where they would face Germany.
Rodríguez’s goal was his sixth of the tournament, enough to win him the Golden Boot award. He also became the first player to score in his first five career World Cup matches since Peru’s Teófilo Cubillas (across the 1970 and 1978 tournaments).
