The selection Colombia is once again in the media sphere of sports journalism. This Thursday, the coach of the coffee team Néstor Lorenzo, together with his coaching staff, gave the squad list for the next friendly matches against Guatemala and Mexico.
Many were the opinions divided among the different local football fans. Some expressed their disagreement with the call of certain players who they believed were already banned from the national team. While another sector of the fans cried out for the presence of some men.
Given this, Lorenzo had to explain the reason for the call for players like James Rodríguez, Radamel Falcao and David Ospina. All of them are men who come with an implanted idea of the game and who could provide hierarchy and experience for the youngsters.

It should be remembered that both Falcao, James and Ospina play in smaller clubs and are no longer part of the world elite. However, the Argentine strategist highlighted the work of the three.
