  • That's all from this minute-by-minute commentary - check back for a match report and reaction. Thanks for joining me.

  • Full-time at the Maracana: Colombia 2 (James Rodriguez 28, 50) Uruguay 0. Colombia will face Brazil in the second quarter-final in Fortaleza next Friday.

  • Three added minutes to be played.

  • Ospina claims Gaston Ramirez's free-kick from long distance.

  • Third and final change of the night for Colombia - Adrian Ramos ON, James Rodriguez OFF. Standing ovation for the two-goal forward (85).

  • Ospina has to make another save, this time low to his right, to keep out Cavani's scuffed shot.

  • Second change for Colombia - Guarin ON, Cuadrado OFF (80).

  • Ospina saves well from Maxi Pereira after the ball ran kindly for the Uruguay right-back.

  • YELLOW CARD! Armero is booked as well for his part in all that.

  • YELLOW CARD! Referee Kuipers has booked injured Uruguay captain Diego Lugano for his protestations from the bench. That was all to do with Ramirez's rather wild challenge on Armero on the touchline. The Colombian needs treatment, but he'll continue (77).

  • Colombia's possession count is down to 57% now as Uruguay get to see more of the ball. On shots, Tabarez's team lead 12 to nine - but Colombia have four on target to Uruguay's two.

  • Cavani flicks a header from a corner over Ospina's crossbar.

  • First substitution for Colombia - Mejia ON, Gutierrez OFF (68).

  • Third and final change for Uruguay - Abel Hernandez ON, Alvaro Gonzalez OFF (67).

  • Cristian Rodriguez tries to make it happen for Uruguay with a fierce shot from distance after driving through the midfield - but Ospina dives to his left to make the save.

  • Not only is James Rodriguez leading the race for the Golden Boot, his Colombia colleague Juan Cuadrado now has the most assists in the tournament, with four.

  • James Rodriguez goes down clutching his foot after a sneaky challenge from Cavani.

  • YELLOW CARD! Uruguay's teenage centre-back Jose Maria Gimenez is the first player booked by referee Bjorn Kuipers, for a late slide tackle on Teofilo Gutierrez (55).

  • Uruguay coach Tabarez is making changes, unsurprisingly. Stuani and Gaston Ramirez ON, Forlan and Alvaro Pereira OFF (53).

  • It's that man again! Gutierrez starts the move on the right before play is spread to Armero on the other flank. His deep cross is headed back and down by Cuadrado to the edge of the six-yard box where James Rodriguez is there to sweep home his fifth goal of the tournament. He's now the World Cup's leading goalscorer.
