101GG Betting Tip:
Colombia start their World Cup warm up games by testing against Senegal in Buenos Aires.
Manager Jose Pekerman has yet to decide on his final 23 man squad, and will look to test alternatives in a game which the Colombians are expected to dominate.
Star striker Radamel Falcao is still recovering from his knee injury suffered while on duty for AS Monaco in the French Cup. The importance of the 28 year old striker to the Colombian squad is so critical that Pekerman decided to include Falcao in the final 23 man squad regardless of his condition by the June 2nd registration deadline.
Despite some disappointing results in recent internationals, Colombia are considered by many the South American dark horses of the upcoming Brazil tournament, with an impressive attacking style of play. Against a weak Senegal defence, this game should be a confidence booster for the Tricolor.
Colombia will attempt to progress to the knockout stage in Brazil from group A, comprised of Ivory Coast, Japan and Greece.
