BUENOS AIRES (AP) — Colombia used two penalty kick goals to ease past Jordan 3-0 in a warm-up for the World Cup on Friday.

Twice Jordan, which did not qualify for the international soccer championship, committed hand balls, once in each half. James Rodriguez and Juan Cuadrado converted.

Rajaei Ayed Fadel hit the ball with his arm in the 40th minute to set up Rodriguez’s goal. Anas Bani Yaseen grabbed a ball in the goal crease with both hands in the 83rd minute, earning a red card. Cuadrado made the penalty.

Fredy Guarin finished the scoring for Colombia in the 90th with a hard shot past goakeeper Mohammad Shatnawi.

Colombia opens World Cup play on June 14 against Greece. It also is grouped with Ivory Coast and Japan.
