Select Colombia The statistics that excite Colombia
The national team already took the first step on their way to Qatar. One of the 18 that he will have to do again if he wants to say present at a World Cup event. Last night’s victory against Venezuela 3-0 left very good feelings collectively and individually for a team that continues to consolidate and that If the statistics from the recent Playoffs repeat, I’ll be present in 2022.
Specifically, in The last four opportunities that Colombia has begun its process of qualifying for a World Cup with victory, the selection has been in the highest event of this sport. A streak that started for the 1990 World Cup in Italy and that since then has been maintained. Only the Zero draw with Paraguay en route to USA 1994, stands out from a trend that is exciting for the future.
Arnaldo Iguarn’s goals against Ecuador on August 20, 1989 in Barranquilla marked the beginning of a statistic that remains until now. That triumph would be the beginning of our country’s return to a world championship after 28 years. Seven years later, the ‘Tricolor’ beat Paraguay 1-0 thanks to a goal from Faustino Asprilla in its start towards the last World Cup held in the 20th century.
The two zero draws with Brazil in 2000 and 2007, plus the fall against the ‘canarinha’ by 1-2 in Barranquilla for the Qualifiers on the way to the World Cup in Germany, mark the last times that our country did not start on the right foot the league that leads to the world cups. It took 15 years for Colombia to cut this streak of negative starts and therefore its absence in the most popular tournament on the planet.
The goals of Dorlan Pabn and Radamel Falcao Garca in La Paz on October 11, 2011 will once again show this positive statistic for our country. Nobody knew it, but that team of the then coach Leonel lvarez, will once again say present in a World Cup. Let us remember that that match against the Bolivians was for the second round of the Eliminatory and that Colombia fought in the first thanks to the fact that Brazil would be the host of the tournament.
The trend continued when, thanks to goals from Tefilo Gutirrez and Edwin Cardona, the ‘Tricolor’ defeated Per at the start of the road to Russia. A curious streak that we hope will continue after Duvn Zapata and Luis Fernando Muriel on two occasions gave our team the victory last night against Venezuela.
