Matheus back and the unknown of Duván or Borja: the possible eleven of Colombia against Brazil

The group stage America Cup ends for the Colombia selection before the leader Brazil in Rio. You can already count on Matheus Uribe and the DT analyzes if the area forward will be Duván Zapata or Miguel Borja.

The return of the midfielder represents a relief to ensure the passage to the quarterfinals of the tournament. His absence complicated the team in an area where balance will be one of the fundamental elements to face the favorite.

While Uribe was a starter, the team got points. In the premiere of Reinaldo Rueda he scored a goal in Lima, generated the penalty against Argentina in Barranquilla, fought against the physique of the Ecuadorians in the Cup and tried to score a goal that Wuilker Faríñez prevented against Venezuela.

It is one of the fixed for Wednesday’s engagement in Rio. Colombia needs a training that is closer to the continuity of the best performing team than the one that had tests without the desired solutions.

The possible eleven: David ospina in the arch. Daniel Munoz from the right side, the only exit through the band to complement Juan Guillermo Cuadrado and contain Neymar. Next to him Yerry Mina, because he knows the attacker Richarlison well. The position for him second central is for Oscar Murillo, more poised, mature and experienced. The left side for William Tesillo. Much more cautious to advance and more attentive to Danilo and “Gabigol”.

In the middle, Wilmar Barrios next to the Antioqueño along with Edwin Cardona and Juan Guillermo Cuadrado. Alex Sandro highlighted the role of his partner in the national team.

“Cuadrado is an important player. We know each other very well. Maybe that’s why people know that it will be a very difficult game, because we know that each one is going to do their best,” said the Brazilian.

The 4-4-2 would close with Luis Muriel as the second point behind the nine. Who will it be? Miguel Borja’s level puts him ahead in the competition with Duván Zapata.

A draw is enough for Colombia to ensure its classification to the next phase of the Copa América.
