The Colombia Thread

Post by BarrileteCosmico on Thu Mar 01, 2012 2:56 pm

I'm interested in Pekerman's progress so I'm making a trhead about it

____________

Jose Pekerman declared himself pleased with how his Colombia team performed in his first match at the Cafetero helm, as the Argentine coach enjoyed a debut victory over Mexico.

The South American side were led by goals from Radamel Falcao and Juan Cuadrado as they recorded a 2-0 triumph over the Tricolor, in Wednesday's friendly encounter played in Miami. It marked a victorious return to coaching for Pekerman, whose last coaching stint was at Tigres in 2009.

Speaking to reporters in the post-match press conference, the former Argentina coach affirmed that his side's display confirmed the potential that he had already seen before taking over on the bench.

"From the moment we first started to train, when [the players] began to arrive here from their clubs, I could see that they were all incredibly committed to the Seleccion. It is something that they all want to be part of and we noticed it straight away," Pekerman beamed after the final whistle.

"We played a very strong team, everybody knows that Mexico have been on a run of very important matches, with a lot of victories and a very high level of performance. We had to recognise that the game was very difficult, it was a debut match against a tricky side."

The trainer's first competitive test with Colombia will come in June, when they meet Peru and Ecuador in Conmebol's World Cup qualifying competition.

Do Udinese have a special Colombian scout or something !Cuz everytime they seem to discover very talented Colombian players like Pablo Armero ,Christian Zapata and its no surprise that Lecce Forward Juan Cuadrado is from Udinese as well who is on loan at Lecce..I think he's been very impressive this term and scored an amazing goal two weeks ago too.

Currently I'd call Colombia the dark horses of South American Football.

Next up is Ecuador which will be a challenge for us since Quito lies at about 2800m above sea level. I think we got it though. Pekerman is doing new things, and really unleashing Colombia's attacking potential (at least thats the plan) so hopefully we can qualify. As it stands Colombia is a game behind and currently in fifth place, in the playoff spot.

Colombia national football team

Post by barca 2011 on Tue Feb 05, 2013 2:57 am

Here we can discuss all related to the Colombia NT, Los Cafeteros!
To start, this is the team selected to take on Guatemala on February 6th:

-Arqueros:
Faryd Mondragon
David Ospina

-Defensa:
Mario Yepes
Luis Amaranto Perea
Juan Camilo Zúñiga
Pablo Armero
Aquivaldo Mosquera
Cristián Zapata
Carlos Valdes

-Mediocampo:
Fredy Guarín
Abel Aguilar
Carlos Sánchez
Macnelly Torres
Elkin Soto
Aldo Ramírez
Juan Guillermo Cuadrado
Edwin Valencia

-Delnateros:
Radamel Falcao García
Teófilo Gutiérrez
Jackson Martínez
Carlos Bacca
Luis Muriel


A few very notable absences including James, Adrian Ramos, the new kid who lit up the youth Championships Juan Fernando Quintero. I'm sure we'll see him back very soon.

Preferred XI:
--------------Ospina-------------
Zapata---Perea---Yepez---Armero
------C. Sanchez--Valencia------
Guarin---------------------Zuniga
---------Falcao--Jackson--------

Nice win against Guatemala.

I need to download the game and take a look. Jackson Martinez is goat.
I hope to see him make a move away from Porto soon either to England or Italy.
