Teofilo Gutierrez: 'Uruguay will be tough to beat'

Colombia striker Teofilo Gutierrez admits that the side face a "tough opponent" in Uruguay in their last-16 match at the World Cup.

Teofilo Gutierrez has said that Uruguay will be a "tough opponent" for Colombia in the last 16 at the World Cup this weekend.

The Group C winners will take on their South American rivals, who were the last side to beat Colombia, for a place in the quarter-finals tomorrow.

The striker told El Tiempo: "The truth is that the match against Uruguay was special, brings back good memories.

"Uruguay is a tough opponent, but we're fine. We hope to make a good presentation.

"We are prepared for everything. We are aware that we have to dedicate ourselves to just play football, whoever plays in Uruguay. We must dedicate ourselves to play and not think about it."

Uruguay will be without forward Luis Suarez after he was handed a four-month ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini.
