Colombia is already in the quarterfinals for the first time in its history. Because it has learned to compete and because it features James Rodriguez, a rookie is worth only 22 more than yesterday and less than tomorrow. His two goals, splendid, served to topple Uruguay and to pass the scoring lead (take five). But not only does man live results. They also have feelings. Victory is also key to inject a joy to dump country wanted to fulfill the wish of the Escobar family. Andrew, the prodigal son, no one has forgotten, was killed in July 1994 by a Colombian mafia after removal Maturana teams including a goal his own goal against the USA. Before this round match in Brazil, his brother James sent a letter asking for an emotional victory legend in his honor. Said and done. Team life is left for him and the account is settled.
The match was a struggle continues to impose two styles. Colombia strove to impart want pace and show alternatives in attack. Uruguay became obsessed with play as little as possible and makes the long and rough shock. Not to wear and because of missing players. At times, Colombia got its own. Hence James and warn Square with two fouls and Zuniga, lateral inner soul, dare to try your luck beyond the area. But almost always during the first time Uruguay managed to lock the game. Find the trade. Just changed plan obligation. When James broke the deadlock with another masterpiece, back, guided the ball with his chest with no history over the area, and without dropping a masterful ball past the keeper Muslera played, hit the crossbar and into the net over it shook. Since then, Godin and his followers more connected and, above all, better with Cavani and Forlan, chosen to forget unsuccessfully Luis Suarez. The PSG striker looked before the break. With a free kick and the ball was missed the Onion miracle. The exatlético showed his retirement in Japan passes bill. After playing only 15 games in the Cerezo Osaka and do five goals, the World unforgiving. Rather says.
Colombia was better and won because their defense is compact, the solidarity center field and his attack is devastating. It came with Jackson Martinez Ibarbo professionalism of knowing it was not a day to shine but rather to suffer. Worked great time, so did Uruguay, with one caveat: just did that. Tabarez bet again five defenses and assumptions carrileros populated his midfield to attack dogs to foul temper, quality and more viewing. They say losing hours before the group cohered Luis Suarez and emboldened. But then to make believe that such a loss is beneficial forms extra motivate by the fact it is a mistake. Without Luis Suarez lacked talent, mobility declined and, above all, did not show the goal.
Came the rest and as in every previous game, Pekerman has improved the outlook. Intermediates are not only for hydration. They are listening. After leaving the field, Colombia made a play book shaped judgment. Initiated in Teo again and completed successfully by James. The ball was right to left, through collective speed and vision of Jackson. Armero’s pass from the left looking to incorporate Square, Pearl wants Barca could head first but chose to give him the top scorer both with his fourth assist. 2-0.
Uruguay tried to rebuild from that 50 minute figure. But I did nothing but make it ugly. A kick to Ramirez deserved red Armero that was not shown. Course. Uruguay never gives up and Maxi Pereira, Cavani and Godin put fear in the end. In all but a great Ospina, even so, the opponent and not protesting. Long only can smile and dance. Things Soccer: Colombia with making history now except Madrid, Falcao few remember.
