There hasn't been a whole lot of action in the first half of the 2011 Copa America match between Colombia and Costa Rica, but Fredy Guarin and Adrian Ramos made sure that we wouldn't go into halftime scoreless. It took 34 minutes for the first moment of true quality in the match, but Colombia have delivered it, creating a goal that will hopefully force Costa Rica to attack and consequently, cause the game to open up.
Guarin delivered what was quite possibly the assist of his life on the goal, threading a 30 yard through ball to Ramos, on the ground and through what appeared to be about four Costa Rican defenders. Ramos seemed almost surprised that the ball reached him, but knew what to do with it when he got over his split second of shock. He took a great touch to his left, going around Ticos goalkeeper Leonel Moreira and slotting the ball into the back of the net. Colombia are up 1-0, and it would be surprising to see them lose their lead.
