Colombia Starting Eleven

Colombia starting eleven in the World Cup 2018 competition may differ a little from the squad line-up that we saw in the qualifier matches.

While Colombia performed fairly well and got into the tournament, such performance hardly reminds Colombia in the previous FIFA World Cup where they reached their record in this tournament.

Let’s take a look at the possible starting eleven Colombia may use in the group matches and beyond.

Colombia Starting Eleven World Cup 2018

José Pékerman will probably try to repeat his predecessor’s success in the FIFA World Cup and he has what it takes to do it. The coach has won three World Cup trophies in his career, even if they’re just from ‘under 20’ league.

These are the most important players that are likely to be prioritised by the coach in terms of the starting eleven:

  • James Rodriguez
  • Teofilo Gutierrez
  • Radamel Falcao
  • Yerry Mina
  • Carlos Sanchez
  • Cristian Zapata
  • Duvan Zapata
  • David Ospina

Not all of these players might be featured in the starting line-up of every match, but they’re certainly on the manager’s mind all the time.

What’s important is that a number of players have already participated in the World Cup before, so some of them will probably make it to the starting eleven as well.

Colombia has an array of skilled and experienced top-class players to form a solid starting eleven in FIFA World Cup 2018.
