Colombia He won 3-0 against Peru on the 5th date of the Qualifiers with the debut in the substitute bench of Reinaldo Rueda.
Los Cafeteros stomped on the land of the Gareca team and won with authority thanks to the goals of Mina, Uribe and Luis Díaz. The stain of the night was the quick expulsion of Daniel Muñoz, who was on the court for less than a minute.
This triumph, on the other hand, has a special seasoning: the memory of Rueda’s first debut in front of the Tricolor. On March 31, 2004, Rueda’s Colombia visited Peru in Lima for Qualifiers. That match ended 2-0 for the Colombians, who won thanks to goals from Oviedo and Grisales.
The coincidences were all joined together so that Rueda’s debut took place under the same conditions: visiting Peru, for Qualifiers and with a victory.
The cast of Rueda will now have to face Argentina on the next qualifying date. With the aim of taking a victory that allows him to continue dreaming of going to the World Cup, Reinaldo’s Tricolor faces an important possibility to lower one of the top teams.
