There is huge excitement among football fans to witness their favorite team and players performing in the Copa America 2021 tournament. In the history of Copa America, this is for the first time the tournament will be hosted by two countries Argentina and Colombia. Here we have discussed more one of the hosting team Colombia, its achievements and records.
It was in the year 2001, the first Copa America tournament was held in Colombia, where so far they have played two finals, winning their first title in hometown. They had to suffer a defeat in 1975 against Peru in a playoff match. It showed a disappointing performance at the 2015 Copa America tournament having won only one game during the group stage match against Brazil with only a single goal in the tournament. Colombia made a strong comeback in the 2019 Copa America event becoming the only team in history to advance out of the group stage with a 100% perfect run.
Colombia holds a record of winning six tournament matches in regular time, without conceding. Victor Aristizabal was the star player scoring maximum goals for the team in almost all matches except once at the finals. In 1979, the Colombia team registered a historic win against Venezuela (4-0). Also, the team had to face a strong defeat against Brazil (0-9).
The team holds a decent record in the World Cup events, wherein 2014 advanced to the quarter-final match. James Rodriguez, the midfielder from the Colombian team clinched two awards, the Golden Boot for the most number of goals (6) and Best Goal of the Tournament.
