Frizzy locks flailing and eyes bulging, David Luiz charged toward the corner flag and karate-kicked it out the way after sending Brazil into the World Cup semifinals with a stunning free kick against Colombia.Among the tears and crashing of Brazilian nerve against Chile in the last 16, Luiz was a shining light.His first international goal had put his country in front and while others, including Silva and center-forward Jo shied away when a penalty shootout was needed to decide Brazil's fate, Luiz stepped up to hammer home the opening spot-kick. With Neymar out of the tournament, Luiz has become Brazil's face of the World Cup.Since Luiz Felipe Scolari returned to take the Brazil job 20 months ago they have not lost a game in which Luiz has played the full 90 minutes.
