Regarding that, the “Bolillo” spoke in an interview with the Saque Largo program: “It is a soccer country, this team is important to face and more for us. Right now they are having a hard time with the goal, but their payroll is not to make an account, they are going to get into the World Cup and people are going to calm down, there are experienced coaches, they are one of the three or four best teams in South America” , he indicated.
Gómez has no doubt that Colombia will be at the next World Cup in Qatar. During the talk he also talked about the players he lost due to different circumstances and announced that he has to improvise his lineup for the match.
