Former Colombia international Faustina Asprilla believes that the current Colombia team can "easily" knock out Brazil in the quarter-finals at the World Cup.

Faustino Asprilla has insisted that Colombia can "beat Brazil easily" in their World Cup quarter-final against the host nation later this week.

Colombia won all three group games before beating Uruguay in the knockout stage, while James Rodriguez is the tournament's leading scorer so far.

The former Colombia international told ESPN: "Brazil as a team do not have very much, they are not playing very well.

"It is Brazil, they are five-time champions, playing at home, and that must be taken into account. But I believe that with the level Colombia are playing at, we can dream about more.

"After seeing Brazil's game against Chile, and Colombia against Uruguay, I believe Brazil are the team with most to be worried about. If Colombia play as they have been doing during the World Cup, they can beat Brazil easily."

The teams meet in Fortaleza on Friday.
