Colombia is third in the FIFA rankings, behind Germany and Argentina. The American team is currently in 23rd place.

Since  Argentine coach Jose Pekerman took over the Colombian national team in 2012, they have played 14 friendlies with a record of 8 wins, 4 draws and a one loss. The only defeat came against Brazil last September.

In October’s FIFA matches, Colombia beat both El Salvador and Canada, in games that were played in the United States. They beat the prior 3-0 with goals from Falcao and Bacco, and beat the latter 1-0 thanks to Real Madrid ace James Rodriguez.

The USA’s last two games saw two draws – 1-1 with Ecuador and 1-1 with Honduras. In both games they scored inside the first ten minutes and conceded inside the last five minutes.
