As we all now know, Colombia's main man on top during the qualifiers won't be at the World Cup. It looks like after the two preparations games, Teo Gutierrez has his place as one of the starting forwards. If Pekerman decides to start with two strikers, it seems that Carlos Bacca might have the edge for that other spot.
Usually, Colombia will play with two forwards from the start, something that surprisingly wasn't the case Friday. The fact that Gutierrez was the one who took that spot and that he also started vs. Senegal, indicate he will start in Brazil.
Friday, he didn't have clear chances to score, but he did manage to control the ball in the box with three defenders around him, and he sent a shot that provoked the penalty kick that James Rodriguez scored on.
On the second half, Teo came out and Pekerman sent in two forwards, Carlos Bacca and Adrian Ramos. Bacca's chance came on a header after a cross from the left side, but Jordan's goalie saved it. Bacca also sent a clinical pass to Cuadrado that ended on a penalty kick. While Ramos chance came off a cross from Ibarbo from the right, his strike went wide.
Jackson Martinez did not see any playing time, despite many having thought he could be the one taking on the position left vacant by Falcao.
