Confirmed: Colombia v Venezuela line-ups - Cuadrado and Falcao start

Here is how Colombia and Venezuela will line up for this evening's Copa America match...

Colombia starting XI: Ospina; Zuniga, Zapata, Murillo, Armero; Cuadrado, Sanchez, Valencia, Rodriguez; Falcao, Bacca.

Venezuela starting XI: Baroja; Rosales, Túñez, Vizcarrondo, Amorebieta; Rincón, Seijas, Arango, Guerra, Vargas; Rondon.

Colombia kick off their Copa America campaign this evening as they face Venezuela in Rancagua, as the two teams get Group C started.

Colombia were the surprise package of the 2014 World Cup, dazzling fans with their exciting, vibrant brand of football as James Rodriguez lit the tournament up before losing to Brazil in the quarter-finals.

Now, Jose Pekerman will be hoping to mount a real push for the Copa America title, and has plenty of firepower in his side as James, Juan Cuadrado and Radamel Falcao all start.

Venezuela are relative minnows of the competition but can still call upon some key players, such as playmaker Juan Arango and Zenit St. Petersburg hitman Jose Salomon Rondon.

Colombia will be clear favourites to win the game, and with Brazil facing Peru later tonight, Pekerman will want to get off to a perfect start and lay down a marker for Brazil.
