Brazil maintained their unbeaten run in the Copa America after they registered a stoppage time 2-1 win against Colombia in their third Group B game on Thursday. The Selecao had Casemiro to thank for the three points on the night as he saved their blushes to score the winner in what was the 10th minute of stoppage time and almost the last kick of the game.

Colombia started the game on the front foot and took a well deserved lead in the 10th minute courtesy of a strike by Luis Diaz, but Brazil eventually equalised thanks to Firmino who scored in the 78th minute after being brought on as a substitute at the start of the second half.

However, Colombia suffered heartbreak in the dying moments of the game and here, we take a look at some of the best reactions on Twitter.
