Joan Cruz emulated the great Muhammad Ali before the U

Colo Colo once again became a giant against the U in the Superclásico and won the 190th edition of the most important game in Chilean football, winning categorically 3-1 on the 22nd date, El Teniente de Rancagua.

The Cacique was left with the victory by hitting the rival at the right moment, first with two goals at the start of the match and then with a true KO when the meeting was already going on the field of the O’Higgins Region.

Continuing with the boxing jargon, one who knew how to be framed in a tremendous photograph was Joan Cruz, who in a cross for the ball practically left Osvaldo González on the canvas, defender who is called Rocky for his striking resemblance to the iconic Sylvester Stallone character.

The photographic success was captured by several, but it was the angle that rescued the photographer Sebastián Órdenes de Colo Colo the one that most reminded us of one of the most remembered images in boxing history: that of Muhammad Ali with Sonny Liston in 1964.




He was looking down, winning attitude and a rival who can only look at victory from a distance. Joan Cruz knew how to leave his mark in the Superclásico against the Blues, in a match that he will remember throughout his football career.

Now Cruz has another personal revenge for the Cacique’s next game, facing Ñublense next Thursday, September 30, starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Monumental. The youth said present in the duel played in the first round, so he wants to break it all against the reds.
