It’s time for the Copa America quarterfinals! After Brazil and Peru qualified last night, it is time to decide the second semifinal with two more matches tonight.

We begin in Brasília with the marquee matchup of the Last Eight as Uruguay face Colombia. These two nations struggled in the group stage but have an abundance of attacking talent and could give us a thrilling game of football.

Barcelona legend Luis Suárez starts for the Celeste and current Barça defender Ronald Araujo is on the bench, and the Colombian team doesn’t look too bad either. This will be fun, and the winner faces Argentina if Messi and Co. do their job against Ecuador. Vamos!
