Copa America 2021 is set to begin soon after a long wait. Colombia and Ecuador will begin their journeys facing off in a must-watch game that will kick off just hours after Brazil and Venezuela clash in the opening game of the tournament.

Los Cafeteros head to the tournament's beginning full of hope as Reinaldo Rueda's return to the bench has already changed the team's look in the South American World Cup Qualifiers. Twenty years later from their lone continental victory to date, Colombia will start their journey hoping to record a deep run.

Meanwhile, La Tri are also heading to their first match in Copa America 2021 with plenty of expectations. Gustavo Alfaro has given reasons for optimism to Ecuador as his side has begun the road to Qatar 2022 with impressive results, and the upcoming contest could be an opportunity to keep on proving its improvement.
