2014 World Cup in Soccer 1/8 Final : Colombia vs Uruguay – Cards

After an incident with Suarez biting Chiellini – the Uruguayans are a team that must and will be discarded from a World Cup. FIFA wants it and the fans throughout the world except those of Uruguay of course – want to see the Uruguayans going home as Fair Play is still the most important part of the soccer.

Colombia is coming out very strong after a group stage and will be ambushing the Uruguayans who finally should resort to playing soccer rather than trying to win Oscar for the best dramatic performance. Godin is the only bright spot in Uruguayan team and he plays on defense. I do not see how the Uruguayans  will contain the Colombians offensively.

The game is also expected to be pretty hot one between the teams that do not really love each other historically.

Colombia head coach is Jose Peckerman who also was a coach with Argentina and knows and hates Uruguay enough to motivate his players.

To sum it up – the game is going to be very tough and we are going to have the first card before 34th minute. Also, I am convinced that the Uruguayan defense will have to commit more than two card offenses.

This is a 5 Units Play
