Colombia controlled gameplay throughout the match, but it wasn't until the 86th minute that the team was finally able to beat Saad Al-Sheeb and the Qatar defense.
Nearly every statistical category favored Colombia: possession (68-32), shots (19-6), shots on goal (5-2) and corner kicks (13-1). And yet, the Cafeteros had nothing to show for it until the final minutes.
Duvan Zapata played the role of hero for Colombia, heading home a terrific ball from James Rodriguez:

It marked Zapata's second goal of the tournament. Oddly enough, he also scored in the 86th minute in a 2-0 victory over Argentina on Saturday.
Two victories in two matches put Colombia in complete control of Group B. No other country in the group has more than one point, though Argentina and Paraguay will play later in the day.
It's been a solid showing for Qatar in its first Copa America appearance. Not only did the team hang with Colombia, but it rallied from two goals down late in its opener against Paraguay to capture its first-ever point.
Both teams will be back in action on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET, with Colombia facing Paraguay and Qatar taking on Argentina.
Argentina 1, Paraguay 1
Lionel Messi and Argentina overcame an early deficit to earn their first point of the tournament with a 1-1 draw against Paraguay.
A goal by Richard Sanchez in the 37th minute opened the scoring and gave Paraguay the lead late in the first half:
After being blanked by Colombia, Argentina entered the second half against Paraguay in the midst of a prolonged scoring drought. Ultimately, after a 147-plus-minute wait, the team finally got a goal by none other than Messi, via penalty kick:
According to ESPN Stats & Info, it marks Messi's fifth career goal against Paraguay, his most against any country. He now has seven goals in the last three Copa America tournaments.
Paraguay had the opportunity to regain the lead with a penalty kick of their own, but Argentina goalkeeper Franco Armani made a huge save to keep the score at one apiece:
That would prove to be a crucial stop, as neither team would find the back of the net the rest of the way.
It may not have been the result Argentina was looking for, but Messi and Co. were able to tally their first point of the tournament. Meanwhile, Paraguay sits alone in second place in Group B with two points.
