USA will be facing Colombia in the early hours of Sunday morning in the 2016 edition of the Copa America Centenario third place fixture at University of Phoenix Stadium as the two teams aim for the third placed finish.
United States have shown dedication to soccer in recent years with good improvement in their squad as they have proved that in their last games having finished top in the group A with successive wins against Costa Rica and Paraguay to gain 6 points, they later defeated Ecuador 2-1 in the quarter finals but were no match to the Argentines who humiliated them in the semifinals. They now hope for a win in this game to revenge their defeat against Colombia in their opening game.
On the other hand Colombia were runners up behind USA in the group A due to goal difference, Colombia started the tournament well, beating the host 2-0 in the opening game, they also beat Paraguay 2-1 but succumbed to a 3-2 defeat against Costa Rica. Colombia’s quarter final game against Peru ended in a Penalty shootout victory for the Colombians but they surrendered a 2-0 defeat to the Chileans in the semifinals.
