Deportes Tolima lined up four foreigners in the final against Atlético Nacional | Colombian Soccer | Betplay League

Last Wednesday the first performance of the grand finale of Colombian soccer was experienced. National Athletic took advantage at home, after defeating with a resounding 3-1 at Sports Tolima.

Although there was an extremely attractive duel for the viewer, the controversies were not lacking…

On the one hand, in the middle of the match played in the Athanasius Girardotthe pijao team announced through social networks that will ask for game points for the inclusion of Giovanni Morenowho had been suspended by the Disciplinary Committee.

It is clear that it is not the only situation that involves “desks”. Through networks it was announced that the same purslane team would have the possibility of also requesting the points for improper alignment of the rival.

What happened?

It turns out that at minute 75 of the match the Paraguayan entered the field Gustavo Adrian Ramirezinstead of Andres Felipe Ibarguen. Substitution that left Tolima with four foreigners on the field: Ramírez, the Chilean Rodrigo Urenathe Ecuadorian Alexander Domínguez and the Venezuelan Yohandry Orozco.

In this sense, the regulation of the Dimayor is clear: “A maximum of three (3) foreign players may be kept on the field of play.”. If the foregoing is breached, the punishment is given with the loss of points and a 3-0 result, as happened to Junior de Barranquilla in 2015. There is already a precedent.

Can you claim National?

The answer is a definit no. It turns out that Orozco, who was part of the Vinotinto youth teams, has a Colombian passport because his father is from Barranquilla. In this order of ideas, it does not violate the Dimayor rule.

Thus, the only pending issue becomes that of ‘Gio’ Moreno…
