Colombia Vs. Argentina Live, CONMEBOL World Cup 2014 Qualifying: Colombia Beginning To Threaten

After a fairly stodgy opening spell which mostly featured Lionel Messi looking frustrated that all of his Barcelona teammates except the really bloody useless one are several thousand miles away, Colombia have made this match a little bit interesting. How? Simple - they're avoiding the centre of the pitch, moving both Gustavo Ramos and Jackson Martinez to one side and sprinting into the empty space.

Twice in the last few minutes have the two forwards come at Argentina's back four with real menace, and the visitors are going to have to be very careful not to get caught on the break here. Ramos and Jackson make a fearsome tandem when they're charging down the field together, and if Argentina concede it's going to be very very difficult for them to get the three points.

I'm still not sure why Javier Pastore is on the bench. At least Diego Maradona was the fun sort of insane.
