Colombia goes out to play today with the mentality that you have to win, regardless of whether the tie, and even the defeat, gives way to the quarterfinals, because at the same time Mexico and Germany face each other, who will steal points. Only a catastrophe, such as losing by a landslide, would put the classification at risk.
The Colombian National Team refined details with the last practice, which was marked by the visit of the Costa Rican coach, the Colombian Luis Fernando Suárez.
If Colombia secures the classification, it will play again this Saturday. His rival will come out of group A, where for now Spain leads with 4 points, followed by Brazil, which also has 4.
