The Colombian national team is a modest team by the South American standards. “Coffee makers” are only the sixth time in history take part in mundial, and their maximum result Colombians reached at the last tournament. For the first time in history, they reached the quarterfinals of the World Cup. Yes, and Copa America Columbia won only once. Even Peru has two wins in this competition.
The current team of England – this is the brightest team of “three lions” in recent years, so twelve. The last English team, claiming high places, was the “golden generation” of two thousand. Then the colors of the “three lions” were defended by Rio Ferdinand, Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, John Terry, Steven Gerrard, David Beckham, Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Michael Owen. But even with such incredible players, England did not play as brightly as it plays now. At the 2006 World Cup, the English became the first in the group, in 1/8 went Ecuador, and in the quarterfinals flew on a penalty from Portugal.
