Colombia goalkeeper Rene Higuita, 49, does scorpion kick

Colombia goalkeeper Rene Higuita once wowed the world with his "scorpion kick" during a friendly with England at Wembley in 1995.

And at the tender age of 49, the Al Nassr goalkeeping coach proved he can still do the business.

A bit better than his efforts against Roger Milla at the...

Real Madrid's James Rodriguez completes Colombia header challenge

Larking around in the dressing room ahead of Tuesday evening's World Cup qualifier against Argentina, the Colombia team decided to try their collective hands (or should that be heads?) at the incredibly popular "header challenge," so wonderfully demonstrated by St Johnstone in July.

With James Rodriguez taking centre stage, the Colombians successfully nodded the ball around the room before the Real Madrid star stepped up to the mark and provided the finishing touch into the yawning mouth of...

Colombia need a result against Chile as both sides struggle for winning form

Jose Pekerman is under added pressure to get Colombia back on track, beginning Thursday.

Chile and Colombia both came away from last year's World Cup with their heads held high. Chile had reached the second round, just as they did in 2006. Outside 1962, which they hosted, it was Chile's best-ever tournament performance and with a famous victory over Spain, plus a perhaps unfortunate exit to the hosts on penalties, there were grounds for the belief that 2014 had been better than 2010. It's true that there were some warning signs on the horizon -- who will replace the current generation...

Five players who shone in South America's World Cup qualifiers

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes breaks down the latest action from CONMEBOL as Argentina remained winless and Brazil cruised past Venezuela.

The journey to Russia 2018 is officially underway in South America, and the results so far have been anything but predictable. Here's a look at five players who stood out in the first two rounds of CONMEBOL's World Cup qualifiers:

1. Alexis Sanchez (Chile)

Just over three months ago, when Chile won their first title, it was Alexis Sanchez who had the honour of sealing the triumph. When the final of the Copa America against Argentina went to a shootout, it was his penalty, cheekily chipped down the...

Uruguay, Ecuador unlikely CONMEBOL leaders in World Cup qualifying

Angel Di Maria and Argentina were presumptive favorites in World Cup qualifying, but the plan hasn't gone to script.

When the fixtures were drawn for South America's World Cup qualification campaign, it always looked likely that November's third round would feature an early battle for the leadership. And indeed it will. However, that match won't be in Buenos Aires, where Argentina take on Brazil, as the two giants have gotten off to faltering starts.

Instead, first place will be up for grabs in Quito, where Ecuador host Uruguay. These two nations, along with newly crowned continental champions Chile, have won...

Colombia facing questions in World Cup qualifying opener vs. Peru

After squaring off in the Copa America over the summer, Colombia clash with Peru to open CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.
After squaring off in the Copa America over the summer, Colombia clash with Peru to open CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.

In the last campaign it was 2-0; 1-0 the time before that and 5-0 in the previous campaign. Playing at home to Peru is usually three points in the bank for Colombia in World Cup qualifying. In addition to the appalling away record of the Peruvians (who have not won a qualifier on the road for 11 years) there is the sapping heat of Barranquilla, on the Caribbean coast, where you can work up a sweat sitting in the shade sipping a fruit juice. Colombia normally use the conditions well, and this time...
