The U.S. men’s national team will play Colombia in its first match of the Copa America Centenario on Friday at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
The U.S. is in Group A—which SI’s Brian Straus labels the tournament’s “group of death”—and will also play Costa Rica and Paraguay in the group stage of the tournament.
The U.S. men secured a commanding 4–0 victory over Bolivia in their most recent friendly, but the challenge posed by Colombia, which is considered the favorite to win the group after advancing to the Copa quarterfinals last year, will be tough. Bolivia has won just two games since 2015 and is No. 79 in the latest FIFA rankings, while Colombia is ranked No. 4.
