What odds are Colombia to win the World Cup?
See where Colombia's shirts ends up in our ranking of all 64 World Cup shirts below:
Who's the coach?
Jose Pekerman. The 68-year-old comes from the Arsene Wenger school of professorial coaches, with a penchant for patient - some might say laborious - possession football.
Who's the star?
James Rodriguez. Has been revitalised by his move to Bayern Munich after a miserable spell at Real Madrid, scoring eight and delivering 14 assists last season.
Best thing about them
Pace on the counter-attack and a reasonably tight defence.
Worst thing about them
Goals are hard to come by - they scored only 21 in 18 qualifiers.
You may recognise...
There is a north London look about their defence - with David Ospina in goal and Davison Sanchez at centre-half - while Radamel Falcao, so underwhelming in England, still plugs away up front.
Cameramen will be picking out...
Any giant insects that take a liking to James, who spawned a million memes after being alighted on by a fearsome-looking grasshopper during Brazil 2014.
Fans' favourite chant
A patriotic bunch, Colombia enjoy belting out the national anthem - "Oh Gloria Inmarcesible!" ('Oh, unfading glory') at appropriately stirring moments.
Not as stylish as Brazil, or starry as Argentina, but could go just as far as both.
Shakira to release a wretched World Cup song which sounds like it has been written via Google translate.
