+ Los Cafeteros finished 2011 in 36th but climbed up the ladder to 5th due to six impressive wins during the year coupled with only one draw and one defeat. (Link via FIFA.com)
+ Superstar Radamel Falcao continues to receive daily transfer rumour posts throughout the Internet as a host of English clubs are linked to the Atlético Madrid forward. Will he be in England with Chelsea, Manchester City or another club when this friendly sets off?
+ Australia would be best served to continue to run out the youth as 20-year-old Eli Babalj, 19-year-old Terry Antonis and 19-year-old Adam Taggart have all recently impressed in attacking roles at the 2013 EAFF East Asian Cup.
