Geeks are here with the latest news. On Saturday, Colombia and Chile will face each other in the quarterfinals of Copa América. Colombia had an impressive start of the tournament by defeating Argentina 2-0. Colombia have three consecutive wins with clean sheets and won Group B. The defending champions Chile won their first two games in the group stage but lost their last game against Uruguay 1-0, and finished second in Group C.
Colombia are the only team in the tournament to have won all three group stage games. Also together with Brazil they are the only team that haven’t conceded any goals yet. With this in mind Carlos Quiroz and his team will face Chile with great confidence and eager to keep the record intact. Having Davidson Sanchez, Yerry Mina and Jefferson Lerma defending and James Rodriguez, Duvan Zapata and Radamel Falcao attacking, there´s a big chance they will move through to the semifinals.
