The U.S. previously lost to Colombia 2-0 in the opening game of Group A. Despite this result, the USMNT won Group A and Colombia finished second.
The U.S. is expected to be at close to full strength, though John Brooks and Fabian Johnson are doubtful, but Colombia will miss central midfielder Carlos Sánchez due to a red card suspension. Tim Howard is reported to start in net in place of Brad Guzan for the U.S. tonight.
Players from both teams are likely to be fatigued as this will be the teams' sixth match in three weeks.
Unlike the final, if this game is tied after ninety minutes it will go directly to a penalty shootout.
Expect a close game, although third-place matches often lack the intensity of other tournament fixtures.
