Brazil took the lead in the 20th minute with a header from Casemiro, following a corner kick by Neymar returning to the squad after missing the Copa America.

Six minutes later, the equalizer from Colombian Luis Moriel came from a penalty, due to a foul by Alex Sandro, and then gave Colombia the lead 11 minutes before the break, when he hit the net in a great team play.

Brazil's performance improved in the second half, and Neymar leveled in the 58th minute after receiving a pass from his Brazilian team mate Philippe Coutinho.

In a VAR match, the referee rejected Neymar's request for a penalty, a quarter-hour before the end, after a joint ball with Colombia defender Davinson Sanchez.

Luis Moriel became the first Colombian to score two goals against Brazil, but last night's friendly in Miami ended in a 2-2 draw.

"It was a tough game, but I think we created more chances and we could have won," said Brazil captain Danny Alves. "But I think a match of this level could have been decided by any team."

Brazil will travel to Los Angeles on Tuesday to face Peru in a friendly, while Colombia will play Venezuela in Tampa on the same night.
