Ecuador literally crushed the Colombia of James Rodriguez (6-1) on behalf of the fourth day of the 2022 World Qualifiers.
Only a few days after conceding a heavy defeat at home against Uruguay (0-3), Carlos Queiroz’s men recorded a new defeat and began to make it difficult for themselves to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar. After quickly conceding four goals, the Colombian staff decided to bring in four new players on the field. These reinforcements did not allow Los Cafeteros to return to the meeting. The Colombians’ only goal was scored by James rodriguez, just before half-time, from the penalty spot.
Chile falls in Caracas
In addition to the victory of Brazil against Uruguay (2-0) and of Argentina over Peru (2-0), Venezuela won on home soil against a solid team from Chile (2-1). The teammates by Arturo Vidal, author of the only goal of La Roja, failed to collect points at Stadio Olimpico. A good operation for the Venezuelans who won their first playoff game.
