Yaser Asprilla watched on from the bench on an emotional night which saw a former club-mate make his international debut as Colombia came from behind to beat Brazil 2-1 in World Cup qualification.

The Hornets teenager was an unused substitute as Luiz Diaz scored twice inside five second-half minutes with his father watching on from the stands following his release by kidnappers.

The Liverpool forward had been reunited with his father, Luis Manuel Diaz, on Tuesday after he had been held hostage for 12 days.

Brazil had taken a fourth-minute lead through Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli. That goal was assisted by Vinicius Junior, but he limped out of the game before the half-hour mark and was replaced by former Watford forward Joao Pedro, who came on for his international debut.

Elsewhere, Giorgi Chakvetadze claimed an assist for Georgia as they were denied a Euro 2024 Group A qualifying victory over Scotland, with a last-gasp equaliser snatching a 2-2 draw for Ryan Porteous and his national teammates.

Chakvetadze set up Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s second goal in the 57th minute after his first-half opener had been cancelled out by Manchester United’s Scott McTominay early in the second period.

Porteous played the full 90 minutes but Steve Clarke’s men looked to be heading for defeat until Lawrence Shankland levelled in the third minute of stoppage time.

Ken Sema endured a match to forget on his return to the Sweden side as they were beaten for the first time in their history by Azerbaijan 3-0.

The hosts were 2-0 up inside six minutes and despite being reduced to ten men 11 minutes into the second half, were to add a third late to complete an embarrassing defeat for their opponents.

Previously, Edo Kayembe had been an unused substitute as DR Congo started their World Cup qualification campaign with a 2-0 victory over Mauritania on Wednesday.
