Defending champions Brazil staged a thrilling late rally to edge bitter rivals Argentina 3-2 in a dramatic quarter-final and keep alive their hopes of clinching a fifth Futsal World Cup title in Thailand. 

Falcao of Brazil (L) celebrates with teammates after scoring a goal against Argentina during their quarter-final match of the FIFA 2012 Futsal World Cup in Bangkok, on November 14. Brazil won 3-2.

The win set up a semi-final clash with Colombia, who upset Ukraine 3-1, while 2008 runners-up Spain squeezed by Russia 3-2 to secure a last four match against Italy, who beat Portugal 4-3 after extra-time in the other Wednesday night tie.
