The coach of the Colombian National Team Reinaldo Rueda will seek his first victory against Uruguay in Montevideo by Playoffs. In training tried 4-2-3-1 with Falcao in attack, but could take refuge in 4-4-2 that the Colombian National Team used to eliminate them in the last Copa América.
The return trip from the Uruguayan capital is usually lighter. The points stay there. Sometimes with wins, others with tight victories. Getting one is getting harder and harder. The last win was in 1973. The most recent draw in 2009.
For the game on Thursday, October 7, it will be mandatory to add. The table is tight, the rival is direct, there are 12 admonitions, Brazil is coming… All of this marks the definition of the starter that the Colombian coach will set up.
In July they drew 0-0 for the quarterfinals of the Copa América in Brasilia. Due to the absence of Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, he left with a 4-4-2 combative that took the definition to penalties. Luis Díaz received long on the left, while Rafa Borré played away from the area as just another midfielder.
For this commitment he will be able to be more audacious without defending himself against a rival with more technical midfielders Federico Valverde and Rodrigo Betancur, as well as two lethal forwards: Edinson Cavani and Luis Suárez.
THE ADVANTAGE OF HAVING A QUINTERO
Order, conviction and sensitivity were the aspects that DT highlighted to show in the Great Central Park.
“Colombia always tries to be faithful to what its players feel, to what the Colombian game has been historically, regardless of the settings one takes into account. Colombia will always be true to what its players likeWith intelligence and order, based on that and the conviction that the team has, we will be able to get the result that we all want, ”he said.
A statement that can bring Quintero closer to the owner. The Antioqueño was one of the most destabilizing in the 78 minutes of the victory against Chile in Barranquilla. It can be accommodated in the 4-4-2 if Juan Guillermo Cuadrado repeats as a winger. With two forwards, there would be more wear for the Uruguayan centrals. Duván would have functions like in Atalanta to leave and enter the area that allow Falcao to find spaces.
The first line of the midfield would support JuanFer and Luis Díaz with two more physical players, shock: Wilmar Barrios and Jefferson Lerma. A possible team would be: Ospina; Square, Mina, Davinson, Tesillo; Barrios, Lerma, Díaz, Quintero; Falcao and Duván.
In training in Bogotá he made it 4-5-1. There the defense would change with Stefan Medina on the right back; Square a few meters ahead and 10 more towards the center to connect or accompany the only forward as a midfielder. Falcao was the one who most participated in the practices in that scheme.
Thus, Colombia would form with Ospina; Medina, Mina, Davinson, Tesillo; Barrios, Lerma, Cuadrado, Díaz, Quintero; Falcao.
