Colombia NT training to face Brasil NT on Friday.

HT: Ecuador 0-0 Colombia

Much like the first half against Peru, not much of note from Colombia so far. Carlos Sanchez is again playing well and Mosquera continues to ably clean up messes in the back, but there’s not a lot of coherency from Colombia on either side of the ball. The attack is very direct and a bit ragged (Falcao had about two touches in the last 20 minutes), and rarely results in any real danger for Ecuador while, at the other end, Ecuador seem content to challenge Ospina primarily from distance.

Colombia are definitely a bit of a mess, but so are Ecuador – three points are there for the taking.
