For Americans, July 4th will be all about celebrating freedom, independence and enjoying a nice, long, well deserved weekend. Most people will check out the fireworks, go to parades, host some barbecues, enjoy the carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, family reunions, etc. and will remember the men and women who fought for the United States. However, for Latin Americans, this day marks a great match between two solid countries playing in the World Cup. Brazil will face Colombia in the quarterfinals, in a much-awaited game that will define the future of one of the teams.

The Estadio Castelao in Fortaleza will be the stage for this display of skills from the two countries. Neymar and his Brazilian counterparts will be meeting a very strong opponent, Colombia, a team that has been without a doubt, one of the greatest and most pleasant surprises of this soccer tournament. Predictions are that Brazilians will come more aggressive, as Luiz Felipe Scolari was quoted saying earlier this week, “We’re being too nice, too cordial with our opponents. We can’t be laid back every day. It’s time for a change. I can’t hold it in any more.”

“It’s time we defended a little differently,” he continued, “To go back to my style, which is more aggressive.” Colombia has a strong team even though their star player, Radamel Falcao, had to sit the World Cup out when he didn’t recover in time from a knee injury. However, a new star has risen and his name is James Rodríguez. The 22-year-old has proven himself and captivated the entire world with his abilities. Besides Rodríguez, Colombia also counts with Mario Yepes, Juan Cuadrado and Jackson Martinez.
