The Colombian National Team will face Argentina for the semifinals of the Copa América in Brazil. The DT will put together the sixth version of a team that misses Juan Guillermo Cuadrado and that would go out with Duván Zapata and Rafael Borré as forwards.
The Selection needs its leader. He will have it against the Argentines with new legs and that ascendancy on the squad that invites you to dream. A return that also facilitates your obligation to be more daring to attack.
With Cuadrado the 4-4-2 has a more offensive profile. Win in depth, inside game, centers as alternatives of danger to the area and a voice with authority to understand the times of the game. He already gave a preview of what he can contribute in the accompaniment with Daniel Muñoz on the right wing.
“We try to improve. We have not been playing together much like I did with Medina or Arias. I must help him in the mark and when he comes out, throw myself in the middle to be able to surprise. Hopefully in the game we can give the possibility of making a play like that “, he expressed.
Another advantage of having it is that Rafael Borré will play near the area. A clamor that lined up behind his commitment to play back with other functions. More like overalls football than goal football.
The now-Eintracht Frankfurt player deserves the opportunity to back main striker Duván Zapata closer. Going out to the sides to force his markers to cover him or disturbing the centrals.
The rest of the training is clear. David Ospina on goal; defensive four line with Daniel Muñoz, Yerry Mina, Davinson Sánchez, Willam Tesillo and the midfield with Wilmar Barrios, Gustavo Cuéllar and Luis Díaz.
“We know the benefits of our players. Undoubtedly the trajectory, maturity and ancestry that Juan Guillermo has in the group is vital and decisive. That makes micro societies have that tendency. Luis is showing in this tournament his great ability and the technical qualities he has. It is important that we have this balance between the two bands for the development of our game concept, “explained Reinaldo Rueda.
The game will be this Tuesday in Brasilia at 8:00 p.m. COL.
