WATCH: Cristian Zapata scores first goal of Copa America Centenario, gives Colombia lead

The Copa America Centenario is now officially underway as we got our first goal of the tournament. After having a strong first seven minutes, USA defender Geoff Cameron lost his man, Colombia defender Cristian Zapata, on the corner kick and with a great volley on the far post, put Colombia up 1-0 early on the United States.

The United States will be looking for their first goal but will need to be cautious because Colombia has been known to be a great counterattacking team.
