29 JUNE 2014 – POKHARA – For the first time in history Colombia is moving on to the quarter finals of the World Cup, and it’s going to take on the host nation, Brazil. Colombia 2 (Rodriguez 28′, 50′) – Uruguay 0. First ever in this stage, Colombia was not expected to go through but it is a game, sportsmanship does mean to those player to achieve the unexpected results which Colombia probed today. They will play against one of the most influential, most experienced and one of the highly expected winner of the this tournament, Brazil.
Colombia has been one of the best teams in this tournament so far, and it didn’t look any different against Uruguay on Saturday. Thanks to two more goals from James Rodriguez, who now leads all players in the World Cup with five goals, the Colombians moved past Uruguay and into the quarterfinals for the first time in history.
Moving past that won’t be easy, though, as they’ll be facing the host country, Brazil.
Colombia controlled this match from the onset, as Uruguay continued to struggle offensively without Luis Suarez. Uruguay has now played two matches in this tournament without Suarez, and it was outscored 5-0 in those matches. There won’t be a third, as Uruguay will now head home, it’s World Cup dreams over.
Best of luck guys for the next round. I think Brazil will be beaten up in next game as Colombian players are more aggressive and Brazil’s today’s match against Chile was the poorest in this tournament, if they play same way, i am quite sure Brazil will be staying at home watching others playing and cheering.
