The Netherlands vs Mexico at 18:00.

29 Jun 00:01
This will be the first Quarter Final appearance for Colombia at a World Cup... and they will be joined by another first time quarter finalist after tomorrow's games.
28 Jun 23:58
Colombia will now take on Brazil on Friday in the first Quarter Final. And will fancy their chances against the hosts who have stuttered their way through the competition.
28 Jun 23:54
A well-deserved victory for Colombia, with James Rodriguez the star with the two goals. Cuadrado the other stand-out performer. The best Colombia team since Carlos Valderrama's team in '94?
28 Jun 23:52
And the final whistle goes, Colombia win comfortably on the night!
28 Jun 23:50
90 + 3' Into the last minute of added time.
28 Jun 23:47
Yet Ramirez somehow avoided a booking - should really have been sent off - for a kick, and then a swinging forearm. As long as he never nibbled his opponent, I suppose...
28 Jun 23:46
Lugano was booked in the aftermath of this incident earlier...
28 Jun 23:44
Potential match-winner Rodriguez comes off, and Ramos comes on.
28 Jun 23:43
84' CHANCE! The ball breaks to Cavani on the edge of the area and his right foot effort is turned behind for a corner by Ospina.
28 Jun 23:39
81' Guarin comes on for Colombia, as the excellent Cuadrado comes off.
28 Jun 23:38
79' CHANCE! The ball drops to Maxi Pereira who made a run from his right wingback spot, but his volley from inside the area is well saved by Ospina.
28 Jun 23:37
Wonder if we will see some more cards before the end of this as Uruguay players become more frustrated...
28 Jun 23:36
77' Regular Uruguay skipper, Diego Lugano, who is on the bench, is booked after an incident near the touchline.
28 Jun 23:32
74' Colombia look comfortable here. If only Uruguay had a world class attacker who could change this game...
28 Jun 23:29
Cavani now tries a cross from the left which Stuani just can't get to... more possession for Uruguay, but nothing clear-cut in front of goal.
28 Jun 23:27
Cavani nods well over from a corner. They really need to be testing Ospina, who has had a comfortable night.
28 Jun 23:26
68' Colombia respond with defensive midfielder Mejia on for striker Gutierrez.
28 Jun 23:25
67' Uruguay go all out now with their last change. Hernandez on for Gonzalez.
28 Jun 23:24
Cavani in particular has been poor... PSG paid 55m pounds for him just a year ago...
28 Jun 23:23
64' Christian Rodriguez makes a run down the middle and sends in a piledriver which the keeper does well to keep out. Been the most impressive of the Uruguay players. But doesn't say much...
28 Jun 23:20
Colombia look a really good side - if they go on to win here, I fancy them to give Brazil a real go, if not beat them.
28 Jun 23:17
Colombia look to make a change themselves here, a defensive one, after the Uruguay changes.
28 Jun 23:16
28 Jun 23:13
55' Gimenez in the book for Uruguay.
28 Jun 23:12
53' Uruguay make a double change: Forlan and Alvaro Pereira off, Ramirez and and Stuani on.
28 Jun 23:11
Great team goal this...
28 Jun 23:09
STAT: Rodrguez scores his 5th goal of the tournament, while Cuadrado now has 4 assists.
28 Jun 23:09
Another lovely goal.  Martinez works the ball out to the left where Armero sent in a deep ball to the back post. Cuadrado leaps beautifully to nod it down into the path of Rodriquez again who taps in from close range.
28 Jun 23:07
50' GOAL COLOMBIA!
28 Jun 23:04
46' We're underway again, and Uruguay are looking to force the issue here.
28 Jun 22:48
Colombia with a deserved lead through the brilliance of James Rodriguez, but they will need to score again to put this Uruguay side to bed - they've had some decent moments.
28 Jun 22:46
45 + 1' A Uruguay move breaks down with right wingback Pereira the furthest man forward... Just a minute to be added.
28 Jun 22:43
Uruguay have been so much better since the goal, and look like they could still be a threat. That said, Colombia's game to lose.
28 Jun 22:40
39' Decent moment for Uruguay as Rodrigues puts a cross/shot into the area, which Cavani just misses, but the keeper saves - called offside, but yet another terrible decision by the officials.
28 Jun 22:38
There's now a "misunderstanding" between Yepes and Forlan in the Colombia area... two of the oldest players on the pitch acting like children...
28 Jun 22:37
Watching the goal again, and Muslera just got fingertips to it. But what an effort.
28 Jun 22:36
Colombia's front four keep on interchanging, causing lots of problems.
28 Jun 22:33
Cavani strikes a decent free kick which goes narrowly wide. He has been heavily involved since the goal.
