Colombia lost 2-1 against Peru in their opening match at Copa America 2021.

Colombia Form


Colombia have won one of their last six matches. Reinaldo Rueda replaced Carlos Queiroz as manager in January.

Rueda guided Colombia to a 1-0 win against Ecuador in their opening match at Copa America. They drew 0-0 against Venezuela, lost 2-1 against Peru and finished the group stage with a 2-1 loss against Brazil.

La Tricolor got past Uruguay in a penalty shootout in the quarter-finals after the game ended in a 0-0 draw. They scored all four spot kicks with David Ospina making two saves.

Colombia fell to Argentina in the semi-finals. Luis Díaz equalised to take it to extra time, it remained 1-1 with Davinson Sánchez, Yerry Mina and Edwin Cardona all seeing their penalties saved in the shootout.
