Kick-off: 8.00pm local Colombia had won all three of their previous Copa America meetings with the USA. Colombia had the better of the early exchanges and went ahead with a scrappy goal just after the half hour mark. Despite some good chances the USA were unable to equalize before the break. Colombia again enjoyed the best of the early exchanges in the second half and were particularly unlucky not to go two up when a delightful Cuadrado chip hit the crossbar. At the other end Wood hit the woodwork with a good shot. In the end the South American's won third place in a quite evenly balanced game.
