Prediction

Australia are desperate for redemption in London, following a thrashing in Oslo. Expect plenty of changes from Bert as he continues to determine the makeup of his strongest XI. Colombia’s squad is full of household names, with David Ospina, James Rdoriguez, Radamel Falcao and Carlos Bacca all in the side, to name just a few. They will be eager to build on their away win against France, and won’t give Australia an inch.
