Neymar Assists Willian For Worldie Opener Against Colombia

Neymar Assists Willian For Worldie Opener Against Colombia

One of the crucial factors in determining the outcome of this game will be the starting XI that Colombia coach Pekerman opts for.

James Rodriguez was on the sidelines for Colombia's scoreless draw against Venezuela last week. This should be a much more challenging task for Brazil, especially playing away from home and should prove to be one of the more exciting games this Tuesday. It would seem that Colombia should try all its forces at the final distance to win, but they do not guarantee anything against the Brazilians.

The return of the captain will give the Colombians a little more cutting edge in the final third as they seek to halt the mighty Brazil, a task that veteran striker Radamel Falcao feels his team is equal to.

But Tite said Firmino, who has scored three goals in five games for Liverpool to start the season, could offer more than he showed in the qualifier.

Brazil's march to Russian Federation 2018 has been one of the continent's most impressive qualification campaigns in recent memory.

The top four teams from the group will earn an automatic place in next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus have guaranteed the visitors are packed with guile, flair and creativity, and they are going to be hard to beat if they're on form at next year's World Cup.

However, there are just two points between Los Cafeteros and fifth-placed Argentina.
