Colombia and Brazil Will Face Each Other Once More in 2015 Copa America
If there was one team that spoiled Brazil’s chances at winning a World Cup title at home last year, it may have been Colombia. Sure, the Brazilian home side beat the Coffeers 2-1 in the quarterfinals, but Colombia presented a huge challenge, and the Green and Yellow didn’t escape that game unscathed anyway: Brazilian football star Neymar was injured during the match, forcing him to miss the rest of the tournament and essentially dashing his team’s chances of progressing much further. Colombia, meanwhile, was one of the biggest stories of the tournament, with midfielder James Rodriguez becoming an overnight celebrity for his Golden Boot-winning performance. Now, the Coffeers and the Green and Yellow will face off once again, in the upcoming 2015 Copa America, and you can get ready for the nail-biting action with a new Colombia football jersey from Soccer Box.
At Soccer Box, we’ve been clearing out our 2014 – 2015 jersey stock as of late, offering deep discounts on shirt designs for some of the biggest teams in both national and club football.

And whether you prefer the yellow home jersey or the navy blue Colombia away shirt 2015 – 2016, you can find them at our store.
These new versions of the Colombia football jersey come from kit manufacturer Adidas and are truly stunning. Get yours at Soccer Box, before the Coffeers head off to Chile for the 2015 Copa America. The event is set to begin in June.
When the 2015 Copa America does begin, one of the big narratives of the tournament will surely be the rematch meeting between the Colombian and Brazilian national football sides. The two teams have met once since their controversial and competitive World Cup blowout, in an early September friendly fixture. However, when they play on June 17th as part of the Copa America group stage, it will be the first competitive match the two teams have shared since Brazil eliminated Colombia from the World Cup.
Needless to say, a lot of eyes are going to be upon Santiago on June 17th as these two soccer nations clash once again. The Coffeers will obviously be looking to prove themselves after two consecutive losses to Brazil in 2014. But will fans of the Green and Yellow still hold Colombia responsible for Neymar’s campaign-ending injury? After all, it was a challenge from Colombian full-back Juan Camilo Zuniga that resulted in Neymar’s vertebra injury.
In any case, the Coffeers will be in for quite a challenge come June, when they don the Colombia away shirt 2015 – 2016 for a battle with Brazilia. Win, lose, or draw, both teams are expected to progress beyond their group, which also includes Peru and Venezuela. However, a victory in that away match would give bragging rights to the Colombian national team, and might even mark the squad as a contender to win the tournament.
The wearers of the Colombia football jersey will absolutely be going all-in for a victory at the Copa America this summer. Following their best-ever performance at the World Cup last year, the Coffeers could be poised to give their best-ever performance at Copa in 2015. Sure, it would be tough for the team to top their campaign from the 2001 tournament—where they won all six of their games en route to a championship title. However, beating Brazilia in a group stage away fixture might just give 2015 the edge.
In any case, fans should have their new Colombia away shirt 2015 – 2016 (or their new 2015 – 2016 home jersey) ready for all the impending action. Right now, the Coffeers are listed as the fourth best team in the world on FIFA’s World Rankings chart, so they are certainly among the frontrunners to win the 2015 Copa America soccer title. Among other tournament participants, only Argentina (at number two) outranks them.
