The buzz: This World Cup was supposed to sway to a samba beat with host Brazil showing off its brilliance. But so far it's been Colombian cumbia that has people dancing in the street. While Brazil has struggled to get this far — playing Mexico to a scoreless draw in group play, then needing penalty kicks to get past Chile in the round of 16 — confident Colombia has played attractive soccer in winning all four of its games. James Rodriguez, who leads the tournament with five goals, has filled the sizable void left by the injury-related absence of Radamel Falcao. And Colombia has proved capable of attacking from a number of formations, allowing it to change on the fly if things aren't going well. Colombia has given up just two goals in the tournament but hasn't faced an attack of the quality of Neymar-led Brazil, which needs a big game to get its title aspirations back on track. If the hosts don't step up here, Colombia could end the country's World Cup party early.
