Colombia in the twilight of a golden generation

Qualified for the last two editions of the World Cup, the Colombian selection no longer has its destiny in its hands to qualify for Qatar.

The atmosphere in Qatar next winter is about to take a hit. With their backs to the wall and condemned to hope for favorable results elsewhere, Colombia could well miss the plane for the World Cup, where a delegation provided usually dresses the stands in the yellow of the Seleccion and ignite the spans with “Si, Se Puede!” (“Yes, we can”).

Sixth in the South American zone qualifiers, Colombia will need a miracle to claim to fly to the Emirate.

Already assured not to qualify directly (only the first four are qualified: Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, and Uruguay), the Colombian selection must win in Venezuela on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday (1h30) while hoping for a misstep of Peru at the same time against Paraguay.

If winning at the red lantern does not seem impossible for the Tricolor, it is especially on the side of Lima, where Peru receives a Paraguay already eliminated for a month (8th), that it will be necessary to be attentive.

Finally, not during the match: “We have to protect ourselves from the secondary results before they lead us towards our goal,” insisted Colombian coach Reinaldo Rueda on Sunday. We must not worry or inform the players; we must focus on a match that is already very demanding.

It’s a difficult time, with a lot of anxiety and emotion.

Therefore, the Cafeteros (coffee producers) will be invited to focus only on a cleaver match while being suspended from the result of another meeting before imagining possible great happiness.

A well-known scenario of the final stages of the World Cup and other international competitions, but always a source of stress for the teams concerned. 

“We have reached a stage that we would not have preferred to avoid,” agrees the technician. It’s a difficult time, with a lot of anxiety and emotion.»
