Colombia vs Uruguay in Rio de Janeiro (22:00 CET)
Colombia and Uruguay have only met once at the World Cup Finals.
Although Uruguay won the Arica group game (2:1) at Chile 1962, both teams went out to USSR and Yugoslavia.
Uruguay were without Luis Suarez, who left the World Cup stage in
disgrace; expelled from football-related actives for months, by FIFA.
AS Monaco midfielder, James Rodriguez put Colombia ahead in the 28th minute; after
controlling the ball on his chest and volleying it under the crossbar.
Five minutes after the restart, James Rodriguez doubled Colombia's lead; after starting a
move and then ending it when Juan Cuadrado headed over to him from the far post.
Classic South American football worthy of the World Cup stage; just a
shame that they will meet Brazil in a quarter-final match and
not in the Maracana on July 13th.
