It became strong locally. Colombia He started his journey to Qatar 2022 in the best way after surpassing Venezuela by a resounding 3 to 0.

Between the deficiencies of the Venezuelan defense and the scoring efficiency of Luis Muriel and Duván Zapata, Atalanta’s forward couple, Colombia was already planted since the beginning of the World Cup as a candidate for one of the four direct tickets to the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

With goals from Zapata, at minute 16, and from Muriel at 26 and 45 + 3, the coffee team resolved the clash very early and did not give any possibility of reaction to the ‘vinotinto’, the only South American team that never qualified for a World Cup.

Captain James Rodríguez was at times the one who is dazzling at Everton, Premier League leader, accompanied by Juan Guillermo Cuadrado (Juventus), two exquisite ones who supply clean balls to their efficient forwards.

With the game defined, in the second stage, the Colombian coach, the Portuguese Carlos Queiroz, put his four best players on the bench to preserve them in the face of the difficult commitment to visit Chile, next Tuesday for the second date.

Nothing presaged a different result for the ‘vinotinto’, despite the fact that they overtake Colombia in the list of winners in the last ten games.

On the Venezuelan bench, José Peseiro, Queiroz’s former assistant, made his debut, who met the group a few days before the clash and could not overcome the absence of the historic top scorer of the ‘vinotinto’, Salomón Rondón, prevented from traveling by order of the Dalian Pro of the Chinese football.

We get that Chile and Colombia will face each other from 9:30 p.m. next Tuesday, October 13.
