Gabriel Jesus started for Brazil as they maintained their perfect record in this summer’s Copa America thanks to a last minute added time goal against Colombia.

The City forward was substituted with 13 minutes to play, before Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino and Real Madrid’s Casemiro handed the Selecao a dramatic and controversial win.

It was truly a fully controversial and nervy affair filled with referring spats and much more.

Jesus and company have played really well in the tournament and now have secured a spot in the next round.

The victory means Jesus and co. are guaranteed top spot in Group B, with maximum points from their three matches so far.
