Starting at 1:39, we do a deep-dive preview of the USMNT v Colombia in the Copa America Centenario opener. You'll hear what Colombia's formation and style is all about, why James Rodriguez is even better than you remember, and why Colombia are a team to fear.

You'll also hear how the US can get at Colombia, where the potential weak spots and mismatches are, and what we think is the key to getting a result in this game.

Oh, and here's that Carlos Bacca goal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2fCWmI7U8o (watch for James finding space and Bacca spinning his defender)
