After the group stage it’s safe to say these are the best two teams in the tournament so far, and it’s somewhat sad they’ll face each other so soon in the knockout rounds. They’ve both used different players and formations and looked really good so far, and Colombia have been especially impressive and James Rodríguez is having another great tournament for his national team.
Chile weren’t among the favorites but showed strength in the group stage, and they come into this match as underdogs who can easily pull off the upset thanks to the talent up front and their solid defense. Arturo Vidal will be back from injury and is ready to show all of his intensity that Barcelona fans love, and he’s also tasked with providing the service for Alexis Sánchez and Eduardo Vargas, who turn into scoring machines with La Roja and will hope to do it again on a big Copa América night.
There’s no way this is going to be boring. Watch it. It’s guaranteed fun.
