Colombia Uruguay

Colombia: Having won all their matches convincingly, Los Cafeteros are the in-form South American side and all that without their star striker Radamel Falcao. Colombia boasts and incredible strike force and the players attack with real force and style.

Uruguay: Coming into the game mentally disturbed after the Luis Suarez bite saga, Uruguay will need a new avenue for goals. Without their star striker they will have to find a new avenue for goals as shown in their opener against Costa Rica. With Edison Cavani not in form the Uruguayans will need some luck.

Commentary

(165 Mins)

Uruguay need to produce something extraordinary to get back into the game. There are only a couple of minutes left to play.

(164 Mins)

Final change for Colombia. Ramos has been brought on.

(162 Mins)

Cavani thumps the ball towards the bottom left corner from the edge of the box. It is a good effort, but Ospina makes a diving save to push the ball round the post.

(161 Mins)

This was Maxi Pereiras chance to hand Uruguay a lifeline. Ospina did well to parry the ball away.

(159 Mins)

Cuadrado makes way for Fredy Guarin. Pekerman brings on another holding midfielder to try and see out the match.

(157 Mins)

Maxi Pereira gets a lucky deflection and finds himself in front of Ospina with an open goal. He lunges forward to hit the ball on the volley, but his effort is blocked by the keeper.

(156 Mins)

The referee shows a yellow card to Lugano who was remonstrating from the bench.

(154 Mins)

A row almost breaks out after Armero kicked a ball away as Ramirez was about to take a free kick.

(152 Mins)

Stuani tries to surprise Ospina with a curling shot that floats dangerously towards the top left corner. The keeper does not want to take any risk and tips the ball over the bar.

(150 Mins)

Uruguay are not showing great intent to find a way back into this game. They have had a few chances from set-pieces, but they have not carried much of a threat into the Colombian penalty area.

(148 Mins)

Colombia are just under 20 minutes away from clinching an historic qualification to the quarter-finals.

(146 Mins)

Cavani anticipates everybody at the near post to flick a corner kick towards goal. However he hits the ball too hard and cannot find the target.

(146 Mins)

First change for Colombia. Mejia comes on to replace Gutierrez. In direct contrast to Uruguays change, Pekerman brings on a more defensive player.

(145 Mins)

Tabarez makes his final substitution. Gonzalez comes off for Abel Hernandez. Uruguay have got three forward players on the pitch now.

(142 Mins)

Uruguay call Ospina into action for the very first time. Cristian Rodriguez fires a powerful shot 20 metres out and Ospina dives to his left hand side to parry it away.

(141 Mins)

Zuniga and Sanchez play a lovely one-two on the edge of the box. Zuniga is about to release a shot but he is blocked by Caceres who sweeps the ball out of play.

(139 Mins)

Colombia look very threatening on the counter attack. Cuadrado breaks away and dribbles past two Uruguayan players before Gonzalez decides to tackle him.

(136 Mins)

Uruguay need to create something magic to turn this game around. So far they have largely failed to trouble the Colombian keeper.

(135 Mins)

James Rodriguezs second goal of the night.

(134 Mins)

Rodriguez strikes the free kick low, but the ball just bounces off the wall.

(133 Mins)

Colombia have a free kick from a very dangerous position. Rodriguez is lining up to take it.

(133 Mins)

Gimenez is the first man to be booked after making a reckless sliding challenge into Gutierrez.

(132 Mins)

James Rodriguez is fast becoming the biggest star of the World Cup. He has scored his fourth goal of the competition to double Colombias lead.

(130 Mins)

Double substitution for Uruguay. Stuani comes on for Forlan and Ramirez replaces the slightly injured Pereira.

(128 Mins)

Colombia double their advantage. Its James Rodriguez again. Cuadrado is on the end of a deep curling cross and flicks the ball back into the middle of the box. Rodriguez in on hand to fire the ball past Muslera.

(127 Mins)

Colombia 2 - 0 (Rodriguez)

(126 Mins)

Colombia have a free kick on the left hand side. Rodriguez curls it into the box for Yepes, but the ball is deflected away by an Uruguayan defender.

(124 Mins)

Uruguay supporters hold up cardboard cut outs of Luis Suarezs face. There is no doubt they are all behind the suspended striker.

(123 Mins)

We are back underway. Colombia leading 1-0 over Uruguay.

(116 Mins)

If the Colombians can hold on to this result, they will reach the quarter-finals for the first time in their history.

(114 Mins)

Edinson Cavani has mostly tried to trouble David Ospina on set-pieces in the first half. The Colombian keeper, however, has so far dealt extremely well with any shot coming his way.

(111 Mins)

James Rodriguez has put Colombia ahead with a stunning volley that left Muslera stranded. It is arguably the best goal of this tournament.

(107 Mins)

Colombia lead Uruguay 1-0 at half time after James Rodriguez scored an outstanding goal to break the gridlock. Colombia deserve to be in front having been the most threatening side and having enjoyed the majority of the possession. Uruguay started the game with a very defensive strategy hoping to hit their opponents on the counter attack, but they have appeared rather toothless up front. How much are they really missing Suarez?

(107 Mins)

HALF-TIME: Colombia 1 - 0 Uruguay (James Rodriguez)

(105 Mins)

There will be one minute of added time.

(103 Mins)

Earlier on, Cavani tried to level things up with a free kick. It was a good effort, but the ball did not dip enough to trouble Ospina.

(101 Mins)

It has been a cracking game since Colombia scored the opening goal. Both sides create lots of good opportunities as they burst forward.

(99 Mins)

Gonzalez collects a loose ball a few metres into the box and fires a shot toward the top left corner. It is a good effort, but Ospina makes a diving save to punch the ball away.

(98 Mins)

Pereira curls a great cross into the box, but Sanchez sweeps the ball away before Forlan can tap it into the net from close range.

(97 Mins)

James Rodriguez is undoubtedly one of the biggest starts of this tournament.

(94 Mins)

Uruguay have a decent chance on a free kick just a few metres outside the box. Cavani strikes it hard but cannot find the target sending the ball high and wide.

(92 Mins)

James Rodriguez lashes a majestic volley into the top-left corner to put Colombia ahead. Its his fourth goal in this World Cup.

(91 Mins)

Having gone one goal down, Uruguay are finally starting to open up and come forward to create chances. After a scrappy 25 minutes, we have a brilliant game now.

(89 Mins)

Colombia score the opening goal in the only way they could. Rodriguez controls a looping pass with his chest on the edge of the box and sends a thundering volley into the top left corner. Theres nothing Muslera can do to save it.

(88 Mins)

Colombia 1 - 0 Uruguay (Rodriguez)

(87 Mins)

Diego Godin clears the ball off the head of J. Martinez. Godin is having a dream season. After scoring the goal that sealed Atletico Madrid’s Spanish title, he netted a header against Italy to put Uruguay through to the last 16.

(85 Mins)

Colombia are passing the ball around in their own half, hoping to find a way into the Uruguayan defence. For all the possession theyve enjoyed, the Colombians have not posed much of a threat in attack.

(83 Mins)

Arevalo blocks Cuadrado running past him with a rugby move. We have seen a few heavy challenges in the first 20 minutes.

(80 Mins)

Veteran striker Diego Forlan attempts a shot from outside the box. He hits the ball hard but Mario Yepes manages to get a deflection to avert the danger.

(78 Mins)

Colombia have had 72% of possession so far. But they need to invent something up front, if they want to break through Uruguays defence.

(77 Mins)

Colombia have crowded Uruguays half with players, but theyre still finding it extremely hard to break down their solid defence.

(74 Mins)

The Colombian supporters do not lack sense of humour.

(72 Mins)

Zuniga races towards Uruguays area and gets a shot away 25 metres out. It is a decent effort with the ball bouncing right in front of Muslera. The keeper struggles to block the ball at first, but he catches it second-time before anyone can tap it home.

(71 Mins)

Muslera leaps high to parry a free kick from Rodriguez away. It was a decent effort.

(69 Mins)

Colombia are enjoying the near totality of possession at the moment. Uruguay are sitting back with discipline waiting to snatch the ball back and hit on the counter attack

(67 Mins)

James Rodriguez has scored a goal in each game played by Colombia in this World Cup.

(66 Mins)

The free kick is dangerously whipped towards the far corner, but Muslera comes off the line to push the ball away.

(64 Mins)

Cuadrado makes the most of his dribbling skills and skips past three Uruguayan players. He is brought down on the edge of the box just as he is about to release a strike.

(63 Mins)

Cuadrado reacts angrily after being hacked down by Pereira at the halfway line. These two sides wont be holding anything back tonight.

(62 Mins)

The winner of this round of 16 match will be up against the host nation, Brazil, in the quarter-finals.

(61 Mins)

Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers blows the whistle to get the game underway. Uruguay are in their sky blue kit. Colombia in yellow.

(57 Mins)

There is a fairly heavy presence of Brazilian supporters in the Maracana tonight. This is the moment news of Brazil winning the penalty shootout to go through to the quarterfinals reached them.

(56 Mins)

The teams have headed out onto the pitch and right now the national anthems are being played. There is an electric atmosphere inside the Maracana.

(54 Mins)

On Uruguays side, much of the build-up to today’s game has revolved around the ‘Suarez controversy’. As we all know by now, the talismanic striker has been handed a four months ban for biting Italy’s centre-back Giorgio Chiellini on the shoulder. News of his suspension have been met with fury in the Uruguayan camp with all players and staff showing their support for the suspended teammate.

(53 Mins)

Colombia - Team news: Having made wholesale changes for Colombia’s final group match against Japan, coach Pekerman has recalled most of his key men to the starting XI. The only change to the side that beat Ivory Coast to seal qualification comes in the form of Jackson Martinez, who scored twice against Japan.

(52 Mins)

Colombia (4-4-2): Ospina, Zapata, Yepes (c), Sanchez, Armero, Aguilar, Gutierrez, Rodriguez, Cuadrado, Zuniga, Martinez

(51 Mins)

Uruguay (3-5-2): Muslera, Godin (c), Pereira, Rodriguez, Forlan, Gimenez, Pereira, Arevalo, Gonzalez, Cavani, Caceres

(51 Mins)

The starting line-ups are in.

(50 Mins)

Following their abysmal defeat against Costa Rica, few expected Uruguay would muster the strength to get out of the group stages. But the South Americans have upset the odds once again and snatched qualification with two back-to-back wins over England and Italy.

(47 Mins)

Colombia have reached the knockout stages in splendid form on the back of three consecutive wins that have confirmed the calibre of their squad. Despite the absence of star striker Radamel Falcao, Los Cafeteroshave arguably been one the most impressive sides in this World Cup.

(44 Mins)
