It’s a huge test for Jurgen Klinsmann’s side as Colombia are ranked No. 3 in the world in the latest FIFA rankings. They boast some of the most talented and athletic players in the world, led by Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez.

The U.S. are currently on a four-game win streak after some World Cup qualifying struggles earlier in the year. Some new faces have emerged into the side. Young attacking talents such as Christian Pulisic and Darlington Nagbe have infused fans with excitement heading into the tournament. Even if the odds and expectations for the U.S. aren’t high, they have a strange habit of showing up on the big stage against the big teams.

Colombia will undoubtedly be the toughest test of the group stage for the Americans as Costa Rica and Paraguay await afterwards. The U.S. will be itching to get their Copa off to a successful start to make their path to the knockout stage a little easier to travel.
