The coach of the Colombian National Team, Reinaldo Rueda, stated this Tuesday that it is not enough what your team gave in the fourteenth round of the Qualifiers of the World Cup by drawing goalless at home with Paraguay, a result that leaves them at risk to ensure qualification to Qatar.
“We must be aware that what we have given is not enough. We must demand ourselves, give ourselves better and have clarity, make a more coherent, more fluid gameIn some situations, think more about the team and that this gives us the satisfaction of a good result, “said Rueda at the press conference after the game.
With the tie, Colombia accumulates five consecutive games without scoring and without winning, four of them tied and a defeat last Thursday against Brazil in Sao Paulo, and despite this, it remains in fourth place in the South American Qualifiers.
“We are hurt with this result because of what was done on the court, perhaps without sufficient clarity for completion. That’s what we were talking about now in the evaluation with the group, we missed that last pass and have the fortune to ‘hole’ (score) and I think that to the extent that perhaps we can score that goal in the first minutes we will be able to see a better game “, he expressed.
That is why Rueda considers that it is necessary to do a “wash” for Colombia to regain its confidence because in January a very difficult match is coming in Barranquilla against Peru, one of the direct rivals in the fight for a quota to Qatar 2022.
“It will be decisive to regain confidence, the conviction of what is done and manage to decipher those parties that allow us the opportunity to add, “said the former coach of Ecuador, Honduras and Chile.
Finally, Rueda is confident that his team can secure a place in the World Cup in the next double day, in which he will also visit Argentina.
“We must continue with the illusion of achieving qualification,” he concluded.
