Brazil got a goal in the 100th minute, the 10th of added time, to come from behind and beat Colombia in the Copa America group stage on Wednesday. It appeared as if Colombia were going to send Brazil to their first home defeat in the cup since 1975, but the hosts turned things around late, in dramatic fashion, to move to 3-0-0 in the cup.

Los Cafeteros took the shock lead early and appeared headed for the upset thanks to Luis Diaz's stunner, but Brazil's attack was too much with Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino finding the breakthrough with 12 minutes to go. It appeared as if a point would go to each, which would have been enough for Colombia to advance to the quarterfinals, but Casemiro had different plans. 

Here's the winning goal:

Brazil out-shot Colombia 15-3. 

For much of the match though, it felt as if Brazil were going to fail to win as they missed chance after chance. But just like in each game so far in this competition, their attack found their footing when they needed it the most as they now cruise into the next round and remain cup favorites.

The goal from Firmino wasn't without controversy though as the ball hit ref Nestor Pitana about five seconds before going in. It was reviewed, and what is usually called a drop ball was allowed to stand. 

As for Colombia, they don't have any more group stage games but could still advance if other results go their way.

Neymar off the post!!!! He gets played through, takes a touch around Ospina but hits the ball off the right post as he was falling down!

We've reached the point where Colombia are defending with everything, looking to just hang on to what would be a historic win. Brazil haven't lost at home in the Copa America since the mid 1970s!
