All eyes will be on Neymar as Brazil take on Colombia in a Copa America Group A game …
Brazil have two wins, as many games in the current Copa America as they are expected to host Colombia at Estadio Nilton Santon on Thursday.
After 90 minutes of confidence against Peru – against which Colombia lost 2-1 – the Selecao won 4-0 in Rio in their last outing. Brazil are the big favorites in the competition and their performances have certainly been top notch. In their two games, they have yet to sink in a goal that highlights their defensive strength.
Colombia have had mixed results in the continental competition this time around as they have four points in three games after recording one win, one draw and one loss. Coach Reinaldo Rivera will be concerned that his side have just managed to score two goals in three matches.
