UPDATE: Despite a late goal from Cote d’Ivoire, they were unable to tie the match, and Colombia won 2-1.

That’s because this meeting is the first ever between the two countries’ national teams. With Group C supremacy on the line, and so many unanswered questions about how the teams will play each other, this match at 12 PM ET (4 PM UTC) is surely one to watch.
