The good news is that they play, the bad news is that they lose. Should it be a cause for concern for Néstor Lorenzo that three of his squad for the Colombian National Team have suffered setbacks?
A few days after publishing the list of those called up for the matches against Brazil and Paraguay for the 2026 World Cup Qualifiers, probably this Thursday, the news involves three regular call-ups who have had a gray day with their clubs in the Champions League.
The first one to suffer was Dávinson Sánchez, because after playing a good game, he suffered a tough 2-1 defeat with Galatasaray against Bayern Munich, with a double from Harry Kane, his former teammate at Tottenham: in the second goal he came back slow and surprised him the British behind his back.
While the Germans scored full points (12), the Turks are third with 4 points, the same as Copenhagen and will have to play their luck against Manchester United, now last in group A.
Meanwhile, Lens, which also had Déiver Machado, lost against PSV with a goal from Luuk De Jong. Now the French are third with the same 5 points as the Dutch, in a group dominated by Arsenal, which left Sevilla last.
Finally, Cristian Borja visited the Bernabéu to face Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid and won 3-0, with goals from Vinicius, Rodrygo and Brahim Díaz. Now his team is third with 3 points, far from the qualification zone and even the Europa League.
