Soccer Wednesday: Your Running Commentary

While some of the top teams and players in Copa America have yet to shine, Brazil’s Neymar dazzled in the team’s 2-1 debut win vs. Peru, but he’ll have to lead his side against a much stronger foe Wednesday, as Colombia prepares to get things rolling.

Colombia is one of the teams that has yet to assert its dominance in the tournament, losing 0-1 to Venezuela — the shock of the tournament thus far. However, with only two games left in group play, it needs a result against leaders Brazil.

Meanwhile, the FIFA Women’s World Cup Group Stage comes to a close Wednesday, and both Group E and F have yet to be sorted out.

Brazil, one of the favorites of the tournament, is set to cruise through its respective group, having already claimed the number one position, but Costa Rica hopes to stun the Marta-led Brazil squad and finish second above Spain and Korea Republic. Group F’s winner is a final-day toss-up, as all four teams still have a chance to finish first.

  1. Aaron, with multiple tourneys concurrently on, when you say just “Costa Rica v. Brazil” we can’t tell which tourney it is. Most of us would appreciate it if you would include the tournament name as in

    “7 p.m. — FOX Sports 1 — WWC — Costa Rica vs. Brazil”

    That would be a big improvement and convey the schedule to us meaningfully.

    Grateful for your headlining these games. Lots of great action!

    • Wait, so Brazil isn’t starting the first half as visitor against Costa Rica and finishing the game as the home team against Columbia?

      I knew the women’s game had some different rules like having to play their World Cup on turf, but two opponents – wow, those girls are tough!
