Qualifying matches are coming up and the Colombian National Team has a tremendous creative mess. Juan Fernando Quintero and James Rodríguez were left out, while Edwin Cardona will join shortly.
With this, the creation steering wheel position will have only one option, which is why it is necessary to find quick and effective solutions. Even Reinaldo Rueda himself asserted at a press conference that “I am in the process of deciding possible new names to join the call.” Two or three new pieces for the national team.
Precisely about this, in FUTBOLRED we asked readers which footballers Rueda could take into account and they answered the following:
In the first measure, they were questioned about the type of players that should be called up. With 47% of the votes, the people opted for a midfielder who has qualities as an organizer and a setter. 19% voted to strengthen the bands, 18% want a typical 10 midfielder and 16% yearn for another central midfielder.
After that, they delved into the provenance of the chosen ones. The most voted option was to quote local footballers (39%), followed by the possibility of calling those who play in South American football (30%). Those who come from Europe have a support of 24% and from the MLS or Mexico only 6%.
With the above on the table, the three candidates would be: Andrés the ‘Rifle’ Andrade from Atlético Nacional (21%), Jorge Carrascal River Plate (14%) and either Jaminton Campaz from Tolima or Cristian ‘Chicho’ Arango Millionaires (both with 13%).
It is worth rescuing that an option was left to place only Cardona as organizing midfielder and thus reinforce rather other positions. This possibility obtained a surprising 19% of the votes.
The least voted players were Steven Alzate from England’s Brighton (8%), Jarlan Barrera from Atlético Nacional (4%), Andrés Ricaurte (Dallas from MLS) and Jorman Campuzano (Boca Juniors) with 3%, Kevin Agudelo from Italian Spezia (2%) and Johan Carbonero de Gimnasia with 1%.
