Tonight will be the game for Colombia. Time for them to get over the hump vs Brazil. Plus they need to keep up the pace in pts. Can't let Brazil win and overtake them. Can't lose ground on Argentina/Uru/Ecu...


Uruguay's need for some tactical changes continues to be visible but they are not answered by Tabarez.

Colombia just chokes.... different lineups I get it, but no one really steps up as usual. Including James, I expect more.

This is one of the the match ups we expected to lose, but we got some very favorable results with Argentina and Chile droppimg points and Ecuador in free fall. We are still in good shape and we had most of the tough away games done already except Argentina.

But at what point, do we say, this is it! this is the game! Standings wise, yes, we're not f up but we could've been up higher more so over than brazil than trailing them now.

It goes to the big games, Brazil in WC, Argentina in CA, Chile in CA..... i want to see these guys take it over and get over the hump. James included. He needs help but he needs to stop going into a shell(which he's improving IMO).

Not just offense but defense too... my god, its like our boys are a deer in headlights in some pieces and counters....

Coach messed up too. Playing Medina vs Neymar was suicidal. Macnelly is only good in Barranquilla. Early goal killed us

Ramon Wanchope Abila is killing in my soccer team (Cruzeiro).
Great player. A lot better than Pratto.
He should be in the next games...

Colombia steals one vs Paraguay in the final minutes!!!! Pretty much life without James.

Disappointed to see Cuadrado now, he's just not himself... Didn't get to see some young guys that i'd prefer to see but whatever... an important 3 pts we secured nonetheless...

oh stop me if you heard this before, Bacca... no me gusta.

---

Hooray for Uruguay, came back with a strong performance against a difficult defensive team in Venezuela... didnt see that game though.

The win keeps them a top of the standings!!!

Next match, of course, COL v URU...

Current Standings:

1. Uruguay - 19 pts
2. Brazil - 18 pts
3. Ecuador - 16 pts
4. Colombia - 16 pts
5. Argentina - 16 pts
6. Paraguay - 12 pts
7. Chile - 11 pts
8. Peru - 8 pts
9. Bolivia - 7 pts
10. Venezuela - 2 pts

--------

Today's matches 10/11/16:

Bolivia v Ecuador
Colombia v Uruguay
Argentina v Paraguay
Chile v Peru
Venezuela v Brazil

For my personal concerns, as long as Brazil doesnt win, I'm ok... a loss or tie will be great. Colombia needs the win more than Uruguay... i may be hoping more for a Col win than a draw since the win would level them both at 19 pts... a tie will be great but a Col win is much preferred cuz a loss could really spell trouble for them.
