One of the best players in Colombian soccer reflected on the setbacks of the National Team and contrary to what many thought
Colombia was defeated against the Peruvian National Team in a match valid for the Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifiers.
This new setback for Reinaldo Rueda’s team, which has gone more than 500 minutes without scoring a goal and more than five games without a win, has caused a lack of taste among the fans who have lost confidence in the team and see far from the possibility that the anthem Colombia’s national team plays in the Qatar stadiums at the World Cup.
Hard defeat for Colombia!

One of the criticisms that the Colombian coach has received is the non-call of players who have been performing well in the national team. Soccer players such as Macalister Silva, captain and bastion of Millonarios and Teófilo Gutiérrez, forward scorer and assister, as well as a figure of the recent champion Deportivo Cali; They are a clear example.
See: Teo “gave himself” to go to Cali, they reveal the low salary that the Barranquilla player accepted for the love of football
Regarding the latter, Rueda initially believed that his cycle in the National Team had already ended, but in a recent interview he hinted that he had changed his mind.

The former Junior, River Plate, Sporting de Lisboa, Racing de Avellaneda; among others, he was attentive to the meeting between the national team and the Peruvians and contrary to what many thought (because he was not called), the player supported his former teammates.
Teo, sitting in an armchair from his house and with the national team shirt close to him, posted the following message on his Instagram account.
“Colombia…faith and support for the boys,” wrote the idol of La Chinita, who has scored 15 goals with the Tricolor jacket.
Colombia’s path will continue on Tuesday with the confrontation against Argentina in Buenos Aires. If they lose this game, their aspirations to go to the World Cup would end, which are still alive with a remote possibility, to win the remaining games and wait for results from their closest pursuers Chile and Bolivia and from those “from above” such as Peru and Uruguay.
The next games of the national team will be against Bolivia in Barranquilla on March 24 and against Venezuela on March 29.
