Maceio, Brazil:

Brazil and Colombia each had goals controversially disallowed as they drew 0-0 in their South American World Cup qualifier on Wednesday. The world champions were deprived a winner in the 70th minute when a close-range shot by substitute striker Adriano bounced down off the underside of the crossbar and over the line. Two minutes earlier, Colombia defender Mario Yepes had a goal disallowed for offside, although replays suggested his effort was legitimate. Unbeaten Brazil stayed top of the 10-nation South American World Cup qualifying group on 20 points from 10 games. Colombia, who have 10 points, moved up to seventh. (AP)
