Copa America 2011, Colombia Vs. Costa Rica: Lineups

It's the high powered Colombia attack versus the young and inexperienced Costa Rica side. With Radamel Falcao leading the line for Colombia, they are plenty dangerous and that's an issue for Costa Rica. Because the Ticos are not in CONMEBOL and are playing in Copa America as an invitee, they were obligated to play their best team in last month's Gold Cup, the championship for their confederation, CONCACAF. They couldn't also play their best team in Copa America so they sent a young team that has nine players yet to be capped at the international level.

Considering Costa Rica's youth, it would be a shocker if they managed a point. Colombia shouldn't have a problem leaving Jujuy with three points and sitting atop Group A. That would be a gigantic advantage for the team tht is looking to make its first major impact in an international tournament since finishing third at Copa America 2004.

Colombia (4-3-3): Martinez, Yepes, Perea, Armero, Zuniga, Aguilar, Bolivar, Guarin, Falcao, Ramos, Moreno

Costa Rica (4-4-2): Moreira, Acosta, Duarte, Salvatierra, Calvo, Guzman, Leal, Madrigal, Mora, Brenes, Campbell
