For Oscar Córdoba, the attacker Sebastián Villa is the most important footballer of the Boca squad that Miguel Russo guides. This Wednesday the Conmebol Libertadores groups begin against The Strongest in La Paz.
A single Colombian will have the Argentine two-time champion available for his first match in the continental tournament. Villa aims as a starter to play at the height and the exporter xeneize valued in ESPN F12 his football present.
“He is a fundamental player because he is permanently used by all the players, understanding that with him everyone has a way of letting go of the team in attack. You are faced, you have no way to solve; You throw a ball at Villa and he goes running. It generates danger and sometimes the confidence that everyone needs. He has improved his aim, he is scoring goals ”, explained Córdoba.
Boca will have the absence of Edwin Cardona, another of those who makes a difference in a team that at times is flat to generate play.
“Cardona had the covid problem and the team suffered. He needs another to be empowered by the assembly and generate the football that Boca needs. When I say that the most important player is Villa, it is because he lets off steam, it frees you from when the team is compressed. The structure, the way of thinking, invites the rest to play, in this case Cardona, the rest of the players are inviting balls, Cardona invites to play, looking for space ”, he added.
The xeneize start will be in La Paz. Córdoba recalled the suffering of playing at 3,600 meters above sea level.
“I played two games and it was very difficult. Today the boys are better prepared. One of the unpleasant experiences for a footballer is to play in La Paz ”, he concluded.
