The Colombian Federation made a clarification on the inclusion of the Boca forward in the preliminary list for the Qualifiers.
It was one of the biggest news of the week in the Boca World. On Wednesday, a preliminary list of the Colombian National Team was announced that not only had Frank Fabra, Jorman Campuzano and Edwin Cardona as members, but also had the name of Sebastián Villa. The media echoed this in Colombia, the news grew a lot and this caused the Colombian Football Federation to launch a statement to refer to the shortlisted, referring to this case.
The coffee team will receive Uruguay on Friday the 13th at 5:30 p.m. and will visit Ecuador on Tuesday the 17th at 6:00 p.m. And its coach, Carlos Queiroz, put together a pre-list of footballers that was filtered. “The FCF allows itself to communicate that it always tries to keep confidential the names of the players included in the preselection sent to the clubs. Unfortunately, some names came to light,” the Federation statement started, referring to the case of the forward from Mouth.
This preselection has 42 names, including Villa. But it is not the official list and to continue avoiding misunderstandings, the FCF went out to clarify when the names that dispute the double knockout date will be announced. “As we reported last Friday, the decision of the summoned list will only be made and public on Sunday, November 8,” the letter closed.
This was a real surprise, as the forward has not played an official match since March 14. And just in the last few days, the club reported that Villa could now play again and it was very likely that on Sunday against Newell’s he will return to the calls of Miguel Ángel Russo after months training with the squad and playing some friendlies in a good way. However, now he has the chance not only to wear the blue and yellow again, but he could return to the Colombian National Team. Will it be given?
Precisely, the one who spoke about his possible call to the coffee selection was Fernando Burlando, the lawyer of Daniela Cortés, who clarified that from the Federation there was no call to him or his client to ask if this caused a problem, as they did from Boca. “Villa is summoned to the Colombian national team and he has a problem with Daniela. Do you think he can live in peace there? I guarantee that he cannot,” argued Burlando. Will the forward be on Queiroz’s definitive list?
