Colombia v Uruguay: Predicted lineups
All controversy aside, the loss of Luis Suarez is certain to all but cripple the Uruguayan National team as he has been the force that drove them forward for all of the Group Stage.
Despite him only scoring twice in two games, the Uruguayan and Liverpool forward has been his county's most dangerous player, no pun intended. His runs, movement and all around desire to win matches is unparalleled to any other player for Uruguay.
Colombia on the other hand have multiple weapons that are all about winning matches. From AS Monaco and breakout star of this World Cup, James Rodriguez to FC Porto's Jackson Martinez, whom only started one of three matches, there is much to be feared in Colombia's lineup.
Uruguay are likely to bring Diego Forlan back into the first team, but he was largely ineffective in the opening match of their campaign against Costa Rica and is not expected to be feared much by Colombia.
Colombia Starting XI: Ospina: Zuniga, Zapata, Yepes, Armero; Aguilar, Sanchez; Cuadrado, Rodriguez, Ibarbo; Gutierrez.
Uruguay Starting XI: Muslera: Caceres, Godin, Gimenez, Pereira; Gonzalez, Rios, Rodriguez; Lodeiro; Forlan, Cavani.
