The most exciting fixture for the neutral will be when Argentina take on Colombia. These countries are both heavyweights of South American football and both teams have some of the biggest names of the tournament playing for their side. Most of the Copa America predictions have Argentina as favourites but Colombia certainly have the players to cause an upset.

Argentina have progressed through the competition with only one small setback, as they gave away a two goal lead to draw with Paraguay. In the last group game, Argentina only managed to beat Jamaica by one goal, however, they had most of the chances and Di Maria gained the man of the match award.

Colombia on the other hand have had a very disappointing tournament, and they have to play Argentina due to a dull goalless draw against Peru. Fallacy was substituted after just over an hour had been played. Both Di Maria and Falcao have had disappointing years at Manchester United, both finishing the season sat on the bench. The form of these two players could decide the game.

When these two teams meet on Friday 26th June, the key players will be Messi and James. Both of these individuals are capable of magic and they have been conspicuous by their lack of impact on the tournament so far. They are both sure to fatigued after such a long season but they will be well aware that they are only three games from an historic trophy.

If both of these teams play their best football then the audience is sure to witness a classic fixture. Can the star names live up to their legend? Or will it be left to the rest of the team to carve out a result for their country?
