Simon Edwards, South American football journalist and Colombian football expert for World Football Index, joins us to discuss his top 5 memorable matches.
Simon tells us about Colombia's famous 5-0 victory in Argentina which earned them automatic qualification for USA 94 and the tragic death of Andres Escobar that followed their exit from the competition.
England's 4-1 thrashing of the Dutch at Euro 96 is on the agenda, as is a James Rodriguez inspired victory for Colombia at the 2014 World Cup.
Simon also goes with Arsenal's 4-0 mauling of Everton to secure the Premier League title in 97-98, and there's Copa Libertadores drama where a 95th minute winner causes a mass brawl!
