Speaking ahead of the match, Nigerian coach Samson Siasia expressed satisfaction with what his team has done so far:

“I had to take this decision to rest some players because we have qualified for the quarter finals as group leaders, and secondly I need to rest some of the starters because in the next phase there is a possibility of going into extra time,” he said.

On the other end, Colombia will play with a full strength squad as they try to overcome  the effect of points dropped in their first two matches that finished with draws vs Sweden and Japan.
