FIFA World Cup quarter final: Brazil Vs Colombia
The FIFA World Cup has reached into the business end of the competition, where the favourites as well as the hosts, Brazil is set to play Colombia in the quarter-finals of the competition. One may term Brazil as favourites, but with the game that has been put up by Colombia in the competition so far, it would not be a huge surprise, if Colombia creates an upset.

Colombia would pin their hopes on the star player of the tournament, James Rodriguez, who has scored five goals in the tournament so far. His first goal against Uruguay in the pre quarters was a peach of a goal, which has been described as goals of the tournament. James would not be able to carry Colombia on his shoulders alone, hence, other players in the team also need to lift their game.

Colombia has been one of the most consistent team so far, where they have scored 11 goals till date, which talks volumes about their goal scoring ability. Hence, Brazil has plenty to worry about, especially with the way the hosts have been playing.

They have not looked at their menacing best so far, where they were nearly kicked out during the pre-quarters only to be saved by the heroics of their goalie. With the Colombian striker in great form, Julio Cesar needs to be on his toes once again.

But, with Brazil's experience in world cup, they have always been a team to be watched out for. The present Brazilian squad comprises of a host number of stars, which includes a great attacking trio ? Neymar, Hulk and Fred. These players can split upon any defense and Colombia needs to come out with their gameplan as well to stop the trio from being lethal around the penalty area.
