The two South American nations were eliminated from the Round of 16 in Russia, with Argentina losing a 4-3 thriller to eventual winners France while Colombia were dumped out on penalties to semi-finalists England, reports EFE news agency.
With Lionel Messi rested by Argentina on Tuesday night, and Colombia's James Rodriguez also given the night off, there was ample opportunity for the respective squads' fringe players to make an impression.
Despite the fact neither team was able to break the deadlock, the game was open and lively, especially in the first half.
The second period was a scrappier affair, with several late tackles drawing yellow cards, while a series of substitutions, as is typical in friendly matches, also hindered the game's flow.
