The U-20 FIFA 2015 World Cup (Mundial) match between Colombia vs Portugal will take place this Friday, June 5, 2015 (6:00 PM Pacific) at the Otago Stadium. With a win, Colombia will attempt to win the group over their rival Portugal, while the Europeans need a tie to finish in first place.
Group C already has two qualified teams for the round-of-16, and they are Colombia and Portugal. Colombia won their first game against Qatar 1-0, and tied 1-1 against Senegal on their most recent match. Meanwhile, Portugal has undoubtedly been the best in the group after winning their first match against Senegal 3-0, and 4-0 against Qatar.
While Portugal and Colombia have already secured a place in the next round, Friday’s match (Saturday in New Zealand), will be a good one because whoever wins takes the group. It is likely that Portugal will use a semi-alternate squad in order to give players some needed rest.
