The Chilean team will face this Thursday from 8:00 p.m. to Colombia in Barranquilla for the ninth date of the South American Qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and one of the great problems that the coach has Martin Lasarte it is the lack of forwards.
To face the coffee growers, “Machete” lost Eduardo Vargas, who was suspended due to the accumulation of yellow cards and will have to bet on young players in offense, where the name of Iván Morales is one of those who takes the hardest to start.
It is that the alternatives that Lasarte has are not many, since Morales is joined by Diego Valencia, Carlos Palacios, Jean Meneses and Luis Jiménez, who without being a forward could occupy that position.
Against this background, the sports commentator and former scorer of Colo Colo, Patricio Yanez, assured that Morales should start this Thursday at La Roja.
“Nobody assures you anything, nor does Ivan assure you anything. Nonetheless, Morales has to play for me, because (Eduardo) Vargas is not converting either, ”Yáñez said on Agriculture radio.
Lasarte will define this Wednesday the starting formation to face Colombia where the National Team is obliged to win to continue in the fight for a place in the Qatar World Cup 2022.
