Colombia vs Argentina: World Cup Qualifying game preview
In their last outing on Friday, Colombia travelled to Lima to take on Peru in the fifth game of their qualifying campaign. Yerry Mina opened the scoring on the stroke of halftime, and goals from Porto duo Mateus Uribe and Luis Diaz early in the second half put the game out of sight. That broke a three-game winless run in the qualifying group for Reinaldo Rueda’s men, most recently falling to a disappointing 6-1 defeat at the hands of Ecuador.
Colombia continue to wear a new look under new coach Reinaldo Rueda, with senior players James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao not being called up due to injury and fitness issues, and Juan Fernando Quintero not being allowed to travel from China. However, Colombia will be taking confidence from their important 3-0 victory over Peru as the try to end Argentina’s unbeaten run.
