The ancient coach Hernan Dario The Bolillo Gómez spoke at a press conference this Saturday, January 15, about his previous impressions for tomorrow’s friendly duel between the Colombia selection and his pair of Honduras.
The coach spoke about the importance of getting to know the Honduran talents who officiate in the local league, since many players have not been able to travel to Fort Lauderdale in the United States due to coronavirus infections on campus and even players who do not have their American visa up to date.
Gomez confessed that will come to face Reinaldo Rueda with a base squad from the Honduran league that they are still looking to meet to try to specify the mathematical possibilities that will allow them to qualify for Qatar 2022. However, when asked about his perception of the Colombian alternate team, Bolillo expanded in praise and said that he likes the coffee team despite the fact that he does not convert goals. These were his statements about the tricolor, which he believes will qualify for the next World Cup without problems:
I like Colombia. They have experienced players with a lot of capacity in the different positions of the national team. Unfortunately, they haven’t been able to score in recent games, but that doesn’t last forever. Not only do I think, but I want Colombia to qualify because it is a team that I love very much and I am convinced that we can go to the World Cup and that these players will change the moments they are experiencing and that are normal in football
He did not doubt for a single second that, under the guidance of Reinaldo Rueda, the coffee growers could classify their third orbital date in a row with a base list of players that began with him more than 10 years ago in the Copa América Argentina 2011:
It is still difficult, I see Reinaldo well positioned, his choices are good and there is balance, so in the end things have to work out despite the difficulties because they are all good: coaches, footballers, the level of Colombian football is good (I think it is 16 at the Fifa level) so it is a large team with capacity and category: I don’t see why it doesn’t go to the World Cup
Next, the press conference of the Honduran coach ahead of the friendly in the United States against Colombia this Sunday, January 16:
As for Colombia, the professional staff led by Reinaldo Rueda Rivera traveled from coffee lands to the United States without Sebastián Gómez or Cristian boy Arango, who were low after contracting covid-19. In his place will be the central defender of the Seattle Sounders in MLS, Yeimar Pastor Gomez, who could be a starter at 5:30 pm Colombian time in the game to be played at the RV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (home of Inter Miami CF).
