Next year will be very decisive for the Colombia selection and his aspirations to qualify for the next World Cup. The Qualifiers for Qatar 2022 They have entered their final stretch and those led by Reinaldo Rueda no longer have a margin of error. The first rival to beat will be the Peruvian Selection, which is fifth with the same amount of points as the ‘Tricolor’ that is fourth (17). It is so Claudio pizarro, a historical of the ‘Blanquirroja’, gave his point of view on the duel agreed for the month of January.
The former Inca soccer player spoke with ‘RPP Noticias’ and was consulted, among other issues, about the current football situation in his country and what is coming in his January duel against ‘Tri’. “The match is going to be tough for both teams, but it is going to be a very beautiful and very special match because both seek to qualify and are direct rivals“Were the words of the star who played for clubs like Bayern Munich and Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga.
The commitment between both teams is agreed for Thursday, January 27 at the Metropolitan Stadium of Barranquilla. While waiting for Conmebol to make the match time official, the previous one is already beginning to live in Peruvian lands.
“Perhaps Colombia has a bit of an advantage since they are playing at home, that in these instances helps a lot. Visiting Peru does it very well, it is a team that seeks a lot to counter attack and can score goals with that way of playing“Added the former Bavarian striker.
When consulted by some specific players, Claudio Pizarro was very clear in mentioning those who have already made a name for themselves in the elite of world football, such is the case of Radamel Falcao García and Luis Muriel, as well as others who have recently emigrated to the ‘Old Continent’ as Rafael Santos Borré.
“Falcao with the experience he has is always going to be a very dangerous player. Another of the players that I really like in Colombia is Muriel, a striker who scores a lot of goals and is always putting rival defenses in danger. I think these two players are going to be very important within the group.”Commented ‘Piza’.
“I would have liked to see my friend Jhon Córdoba in the national team, but that is already a matter for the coach’s decisions, I have a very good relationship with Jhon and I would have liked to see him, so he knows later on, maybe he could be“Added the Peruvian, referring to the footballer who plays for Krasnodar in Russia, with whom he met a few seasons ago at Cologne in Germany.
Likewise, the ‘Bombardero de los Andes’ had words of praise for Santos Borré, who recently arrived in German football from River Plate. “He seems to me an extraordinary player, he is very good. It costs him a bit but I think it is normal, inside everything it is a very big change to come to Germany, the climate, football is totally different, one misses the family, it is complicated”, Commented on the ex-player of the ‘Millionaire’.
“When you want to progress in your career, and that is what Borré wants, you simply have to do what you do best, which is to play soccer. Little by little he will adapt to the new things that the Bundesliga and German football give you. It is important to have a South American or someone with whom you can share and be a little more Latin, as far as possible, that helps a lot to understand the group and the team”, He concluded.
