Cape Town - Colombia captain Mario Yepes insists that his team are well prepared for the opening fixture of their World Cup against Greece on Saturday.
Of all the groups at this year’s tournament, Group C is probably the most unpredictable as it isn’t as littered with international stars as some of the other groups in the tournament. It is precisely that which has complicated Colombia’s preparation for their campaign, but Yepes no longer has any doubts about what will be required against Greece.
"The whole team comes with a clear idea of what is Greece," Yepes told journalists on Thursday.
Jose Pekerman’s team will travel to Belo Horizonte with one goal; to take full advantage of the opportunity which has been presented to them this year, as the national team continues to experience a resurgence.
"We are inspired by the fact of being able to achieve the child's dream; to play a World Cup," said Yepes.
"This is a unique experience," added the Colombian defender.
Colombia will also play Ivory Coast and Japan in Group C.
