GROUP A: COLOMBIA vs. COSTA RICA

Where: Houston. Time: 6:30 p.m. PDT. TV: FS2, Univision, UDN.

The buzz: Colombia is already through to the second round, thanks to James Rodriguez, who has had a part in three of his team’s four goals in this tournament. Costa Rica, meanwhile, needs a miracle to keep its tournament alive. World Cup quarterfinalists two years ago, the Ticos must beat Colombia by five goals while Paraguay loses to the U.S. to reach the second round here. That’s unlikely since Costa Rica has been shut out in its two matches thus far.
