Colombia vs Penalties Awarded by JerryDrake
COLOMBIA SPECIALS - GROUP STAGE, TOTAL PENALTIES AWARDED
Colombia is the favorite team to qualify to Round of 16 among all teams in the Group C (Colombia, Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan).
Even without Radamel Falcao, the Cafeteros can count on a great number of first level players: Bacca (Sevilla), Martinez (Porto), Cuadrado (Fiorentina), Gutierrez (River Plate) and also many players who play or played in Serie A like Guarin, Yepes, Armero, Zapata and Zuniga. Some of them have not had a great season but they remain good players.
Thinking of the opponents of Colombia, I imagine that Greece, the first rival in the World Cup, will look for a draw and play extremely in the defense, risking to make fouls in their own areas and conceding a penalty. The fact that Ivory Coast and Japan are weaker than Colombia give also the Colombians a good chance to play in the attack and look for a victory (it depends on the standing after each round).
This season I have watched many games played by Cuadrado with Fiorentina and if I think that he will be a constant danger for the defense. He is improving season after season. When he arrived in Udine he was young and without experience, still many experts were already talking good about him. With Fiorentina he developed his skills further and often gets easily in the opponents' area. The defenders have only two possibilities: to make a foul or to let him shoot.
