Colombia forward Jackson Martinez has claimed that he and his teammates are not scared of Brazil ahead of their quarter-final clash at the World Cup.
The Colombians booked their place in the last eight with a win over Uruguay, while hosts Brazil knocked out Chile.
"It will be a privilege to play against Brazil," Martinez told Sportal. "It'll be a major challenge for us. We'll keep working to go as far as possible in the World Cup.
"Brazil does not scare Colombia, but be careful with their stars. Now, we have our strengths and that's what allowed us to reach the quarter-finals."
Martinez has scored one goal in three appearances for Colombia so far at the World Cup.
