The Chilean team is penultimate in the standings of the South American Qualifiers heading to Qatar 2022, so it urgently needs to add points against Colombia to climb positions and get excited about qualifying for a new World Cup.
The suspension, due to the accumulation of yellow cards, of Eduardo Vargas forces Martín Lasarte to make a modification in the attack zone, which adds to the casualties of Alexis Sánchez and Ben Brereton so the offensive alternatives become Diego Valencia, Luis Jimenez and Iván Morales.
“We will have to deal with the alternatives we have, some of the young people will have to command the attack, I still don’t know who, but this is so, suddenly it’s your turn”. Martín Lasarte stated once the match against Ecuador was over.
Morales has already played as a starter, he entered from the first minute against Brazil, so he adds points to lead La Roja’s forward. The fact of being visitors, playing with more spaces to take advantage of their speed gives DT variants when planning the match against the coffee growers.
At the moment, there is no confirmation on the stellar eleven, but the previous works, where the colocolino has been quite active, suggest that he will have a chance again from the first minute.
