A red-hot Colombia are set to pose some problems for the Caltex Socceroos in Wednesday morning's (6am AEDT on Fox Sports and Channel Ten) friendly in London.
La Tricolor's 3-2 win over France on the weekend - after being 2-0 down - shows just how good they can be, with their quality winning praise from France coach Didier Deschamps.
Here are a few of the super talents who could face the Caltex Socceroos at Craven Cottage.
James Rodriguez (Bayern Munich)
Rodriguez burst into the international spotlight with some jaw-dropping performances at the last FIFA World Cup, where his six goals earned him the Golden Boot and a move to Real Madrid.
He has since joined German giants Bayern Munich on loan and is very much the star of the national team.
Radamel Falcao (Monaco)
'El Tigre' was loaned to Manchester United and Chelsea after some prolific goal-scoring seasons with Atletico Madrid and Monaco.
He's a Colombian legend, and while it didn't quite work out in the Premier League, Falcao is one of Europe's most lethal strikers. The 32-year-old captains his country and scored in the win over Les Bleus.
David Ospina (Arsenal)
Ospina became Colombia's most-capped goalkeeper in October 2016 and has been with Premier League club Arsenal since 2014.
He is known for his acrobatic saves and fast reflexes and is their undisputed No.1 heading to Russia.
Davinson Sanchez (Tottenham)
Young defender Davinson Sanchez has won eight caps since his first senior call-up in February 2016.
The highly-rated 21-year-old has also made over 30 competitive appearances in his debut season at Tottenham, having signed from Dutch powerhouse Ajax in the European summer.
Jose Izquierdo (Brighton & Hove Albion)
The versatile and tricky winger joined newly-promoted Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion in 2017 and has looked at home, scoring four goals in 25 league appearances.
A club team-mate of Caltex Socceroos gloveman Mat Ryan, Izquierdo is still finding his feet at international level but should soon play a prominent part in Colombia colours.
Yerry Mina (Barcelona)
Mina is the other half of a defensive partnership that could be set in stone for the next decade.
He is the first Colombian to play for Spanish super club Barcelona, whom he joined in January, and he brings size and strength alongside the more languid Sanchez.
Cristian Zapata (AC Milan)
Zapata offers an experienced alternative in the heart of defence with almost 13 years in Serie A and over 50 caps behind him.
He currently plies his trade at AC Milan and should have no trouble making the plane to Russia.
