Luis Diaz inspired Colombia to victory over Brazil on an emotional night as his father watched from the stands after being released by his kidnappers.
The Liverpool forward scored twice in five second-half minutes to complete a surprise Colombia comeback in the 2026 World Cup qualifier in Barranquilla.
He was reunited with his father, Luis Manuel Diaz, on Tuesday after rebels had held him hostage for 12 days.
Diaz was surrounded by team-mates and staff following his first goal.
The 26-year-old pointed to the crowd after his 75th-minute equaliser and television cameras showed his teary-eyed father, wearing a Colombia shirt, celebrating with his arms raised.
Diaz said he had experienced “hard moments” over recent weeks but added: “Life makes you strong and brave and I think that’s football, and not just football but life.
“I’m grateful to my team-mates, to the coaching staff who were always there for me at every moment,” he said.
“And I dedicate the victory to the people, who deserved it.”
