Where to Watch Live

The kick-off is set for 9pm BST. Live coverage is on ITV and ITV HD. Live Radio commentary will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Colombia are the in-form South American team going into the last-16 of the World Cup. They have won all their matches convincingly. Japan felt the brunt of Colombia's strike force. All the Colombian star players are in form with all of them finding the back of the net this tournament.

Jose Pekerman rested a few of his players against Japan. But the likes of James Rodriguez and Yepes are likely to return to the starting line up against fellow South Americans Uruguay. The coach will however need to make a call on the inclusion of striker Jackson Martinez after he scored a brace against Japan.

Meanwhile, Uruguay come into the game mentally disturbed after the Suarez bite saga. Without their talismanic striker they will have to find a new avenue for goals. With Edison Cavani not in form and Diego Forlan not getting too much game time, it could be a long night for the Uruguayans.

Oscar Tabarez will have to rally the team and get them to focus on the game rather than all the media attention that currently surrounds the team.

What Managers Say

Jose Pekerman (Colombia): "I haven't had a look at Uruguay yet because we were focused on this game but we know we're going to be taking on one of the strongest teams in South America and the world. And (they have) some very experienced players who never know when they're beaten."
