WCQ's: Colombia vs Venezuela

Colombian NT coach Francisco Maturana has his job on the line in the next 2 games. Luckily for him both games are in Barranquilla. First off the other winless team Venezuela.

Maturana raised a few eyebrows by calling veteran's Harold Lozano and Julian Vazquez as well as newcomer Andres Chitiva.

The venezuelans have said that they will play offensively this game. I believe they will, but I just don't think it will make a difference. Colombia is on a mission for this game.

Venezuela Steals 3 Points

Venezuela has taken 3 crucial home points from Colombia and have made up for the ones they lost against Argentina.

Everyone knows that Venezuela's level of futbol has increased the last few years, but no one saw this comming.

I didn't see the game, but I'm guessing Venezuela's hard work + Colombia's bad luck won them the game, because from the reports I have read, it seems Colombia had the right attitude starting off, and just couldn't score.

Also the reports say that Venezuela Goalie was the man of the match.

Soy Celeste, Soy Celeste,
Celeste soy yo!

yeah I watched the game... The Colombians couldn't take a trick really, in the second half. The percentage of possession was 80 something to Colombia in the second half

Yeah the keeper was great So was the goal...

Colombia totally dominated on the wings but when it came to the final pass and shot on goal it just didn't happen.

Great win for Venezuela..

Bye bye Maturana

No doubt this was a big surprise. Venezuela put in a stoic performance specially the keeper. I knew Venezuela will give Colombia a hard time, but to win it, wow!!!

Colombia is a broken team and more than likely Maturana will have to go and bring new ideas and fresh blood.

Not the best game in history, but the important thing is that we stole the 3 points.

Arango may be one of the best players of the Mexican league right now.

And isn't Angelucci simply AWESOME? He is one of the best keepers in the world and is plajing for Deportivo Táchira because he's 34.


Siete estrellas es más bonito.
