David Luiz: Colombia would have gone further if they “hadn't come up against Brazil”Brazil's David Luiz, wearing Colombia's James Rodriguez's jersey, celebrates with teammates after their 2014 World Cup quarter-finals at the Castelao arena in Fortaleza
David Luiz believes Colombia would have gone deeper into the World Cup if they had avoided Brazil.
The defender - who netted a sublime free-kick to help the Selecao to a 2-1 victory over their South American rivals - was impressed with Jose Pekerman’s side, but believes Brazil gave a strong performance.
“It was a great game, Colombia had an excellent World Cup and they probably would’ve gone further if they hadn’t come up against Brazil,” he said, as reported by Football Italia.
“However, today we looked for the goal and were great in every moment of the match.”
