Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 2am BST (on Sunday). Premier Sports will provide live coverage in the United Kingdom.


Colombia registered a 2-1 victory over Paraguay in the last fixture and that was their second consecutive victory in the tournament. That has seen them sit on top of Group A table with six points after two matches.

Jose Pekerman has seen his men seal a berth in the quarter-final of the tournament and they will be looking to finish the final group stage fixture on a high with a victory over Costa Rica. This will see them finish Group A with nine points.

Costa Rica, on the other hand, jeopardised their chances of qualifying for the quarter-final following their 4-0 defeat against USA. The negative goal difference has seen them mount an impossible task of going further in the tournament.
