Two Spurs players are expected to feature in the latest Group B action in Brazil

Davinson Sanchez will hope to help Colombia qualify for the knock-out phase of the Copa America when they take on Qatar in Brazil later tonight.

The Spurs defender starred in the Group B opener, a 2-0 win over Argentina with club colleague Juan Foyth an unused substitute.

With Colombia top of the standings after one game, the South Americans know a win over Qatar will guarantee them a spot in the quarter-finals.

Sanchez should start again and after his match he will be able to watch fellow Tottenham Hotspur defender Foyth, if selected, when Argentina take on Paraguay.

It is a crucial game for the two-time World Cup winners and they realistically need a win to keep alive their hopes of finishing at least second.

Foyth was not called upon during Argentina's Group B loss to Colombia, but will hope to make his tournament debut for his nation in the early hours of Thursday morning.
