The Colombian team began preparing for the friendly against Bolivia, the last one before the start of the Copa América, waiting for coach Néstor Lorenzo to announce on Saturday the final list of players with whom he will compete in the continental tournament.

The coffee team, which beat the United States on Saturday (1-5), traveled to the city of Hartford, in the state of Connecticut, to play the game against the Green team there on Saturday at the Pratt & Whitney stadium.

Colombia is currently training with 28 players, of which two will be discarded from the final list of 26 players who will compete in the Copa América.

Balance and expectations

Midfielder Richard Ríos, from Palmeiras, appreciated what the team did against the United States and highlighted that this type of game allows them to make adjustments for the continental tournament, in which Colombia is part of Group D with Brazil, Paraguay and Costa Rica .

“The balance was that good collective work was done. Things can always be improved: we are always watching the videos, the coach talks to us, because regardless of the goals, one thing or another has to be improved,” said Ríos, who scored one of the five goals in that game.

The 24-year-old player stressed: “We are adjusting everything for the Copa América, which is what we are aiming for. These games prepare us a lot, they show us the shortcomings we have (…) to prepare for the Copa América.”

Winger Luis Sinisterra, who plays for Bournemouth and was injured for a good part of the season, expressed his joy at the result against the United States, but said that that “is now in the past.”

Summary Colombia (5) – (1) United States – preparatory match

“We are already preparing for the next game. This week of preparation begins and the idea is to be up to par to compete against Bolivia,” he added.

That is why a space is opening up in the team, with which he hopes to “score many more goals” and with whom he valued the good moment he is experiencing and which places him as one of the favorites for the title.

“We have been creating that (favoritism) game after game, with this performance and those victories, obviously that creates that environment. We continue to work with humility, facing each game with the greatest humility and the greatest seriousness possible,” he expressed.

Sinisterra added: “I think it is important to also have our feet on the ground. Right now in the tournament everything is going to be different, the teams are going to give their lives in each game and we have to know that it will be difficult and we are preparing in the best way for that.”
