Brazil vs. Colombia 2012: Preview and TV schedule

Drew Hallowell

Falcao! James! Neymar! Sponsor obligations! It's Colombia and Brazil in New Jersey!

While watching Colombia's downright brilliant World Cup qualifying campaign, you might have thought to yourself, "Yeah, this team is awesome, but I wonder how they'd do if Brazil was in this tournament". We won't really know for sure after Wednesday night's game, but we might get a better idea of exactly how the Cafeteros stack up against the World Cup hosts.

Both Brazil and Colombia have called up their best teams for their friendly match, though both managers might experiment with less than their first teams. Since the match is being played in New Jersey, there will probably be a sponsor obligation or two. Expect to see at least 45 minutes from Neymar, Kaka and Falcao, but it's anyone's guess who starts the match. Arouca, Fabio Santos and Rever have earned surprise calls for Brazil, while young Colombian Juan Fernando Quintero might get a run-out after starting this season strong with Pescara.

Match date/time: Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. ET

Venue: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey

TV: ESPN (U.K.), Globo (Brazil), Caracol TV (Colombia)
