The Brazilian team is already in Barranquilla to face Colombia this Sunday, in a match that generates many expectations from both sides in the previous one. On the part of Canarinha, it will be the possibility of increasing their winning streak in the Qualifiers and positioning themselves ever closer to the Qatar 2022 World Cup, while the locals will have the chance to strike and get even closer to the squad of those from up on the table.

Excited by the start of the match, a group of Colombian fans approached the hotel where the Brazilian players are concentrated, giving a warm welcome to their main star: Neymar. Some wore their shirts and others carried posters with the phrases "The best player in the world" and "Welcome Neymar Jr. If you played in heaven, I would die to see you", expressions that show the affection they have for the Paris Saint- Germain.

Neymar could not be present in the agonizing victory of the Brazilian team (3-1) against Venezuela for the first of the three qualifying dates, since he was suspended due to the accumulation of yellow cards. Even with its highest figure watching the game from the outside, Canarinha achieved victory in Caracas and is getting closer to the World Cup in Qatar 2022.

Absolute leaders with 27 points, those led by Tite have full victories, 9 in 9 matches played, and one game less, because there were still no definitions regarding the suspension of the crossing against Argentina. For the next match, against Colombia as a visitor, the Verdeamarela will already be able to count on Ney.
