Team News: Edinson Cavani and Diego Forlan start for Uruguay against Colombia

Luis Suarez is replaced by Diego Forlan for Uruguay as they prepare to take on Colombia in their last-16 clash at the World Cup.

Uruguay have called upon the attacking experience of Diego Forlan to replace Luis Suarez as they face Colombia in the last 16 of the World Cup this evening.

The former Manchester United striker will be supported by Edinson Cavani, while another attacking presence is presented in the form of Cristian Rodriguez.

Colombia have recalled key player James Rodriguez after he was rested for their final group game, with Jackson Martinez managing to snatch a place in the side having scored twice against Japan recently.

Jose Pekerman has also included trusted striker Teofilo Gutierrez, but Carlos Bacca remains on the bench because of a thigh strain.

Colombia: Ospina; Zuniga, Armero, Sanchez, Zapata, Yepes, Cuadrado, Aguilar, Gutierrez, Rodriguez, Martínez
