Colombia vs. Senegal: 6 Things We Learned
Victor R. Caivano/Associated Press

Colombia wasn’t able to keep a two-goal lead over Senegal in Argentina and ended up tying, 2-2.

The game had two faces for the Colombians. A first half with a team that looked solid with a smooth buildup of attacking plays by adding numbers up front and the premise of quick passes to keep possession. The second half must have left a lot of questions on Colombia’s defense, as their weakest line suffered tremendously.

Colombia’s coach, Jose Pekerman, also used some players that are looking for a spot on the final roster, which obviously led us to think that the result wasn’t the most important thing he was looking for, but the players “tested” performance was. A couple of those players looking for a spot in the final roster had solid performances, and it is now up to Pekerman to decide if that was good enough.

Here are six points to highlight from the match.
