The arrival of Qatar 2022 is close, with less than two months to start the competitions, the teams are preparing for the debut in the first World Cup to be played at the end of the year. One of the main absences will be that of the Colombian National Team, as they did not get a place in the South American Qualifiers.
Meanwhile, FIFA prepares everything for the competition. Despite that, there was time to remember what happened in Russia 2018, with a lot of Colombian stamp.
For that time, the tricolor arrived with much expectation, due to the quality of players, in the best teams in the world.
The World Cup account recalled the goal that Juan Fernando Quintero scored against Japan, in the defeat against the Asians by 1 to 2. At that time, technology came into use in football and in World Cups, one of them, the automatic goal detection.
The free kick taken by the left-hander barely crossed the goal line, to the astonishment of the technique, by sending it under the barrier, who thought otherwise. For that World Cup, Colombia reached the round of 16, where England left the tricolor on the way, from the penalty spot.
