Paulinho, who was dropped from the starting line up against Chile, clearly has a strong influence on this Brazil side. And with Luis Gustavo’s suspended for the quarter finals against Colombia, their is a good chance he might start.

Brazil’s players cried for joy after Gonzalo Jara’s spot kick bounced back off the upright to send them through after keeper Julio Cesar had saved two shootout penalties.
“Four years ago I gave an interview, very upset, very sad,” said Julio Cesar, referring to Brazil’s quarter-final exit to the Netherlands at the 2010 World Cup.
“I will repeat it again, but this time I am happy,” added the man of the match, struggling to keep his emotions in check. “Only God knows, and my family, what I went through. My team mates gave me support and strength. My big dream is that Brazil have a party.”
Only lifting the trophy in Rio de Janeiro on July 13 will be enough to satisfy Brazil’s expectant fans, and they next face Colombia, who beat Uruguay 2-0 in another Latin American clash that underlines the region’s domination of the tournament.
