Colombia vs. Greece: Key Selection Decisions for Jose Pekerman

Jose Pekerman looks to have a pretty clear picture of his starting XI for Colombia’s 2014 World Cup opener against Greece on Saturday, but there are still a few positions that could be up for grabs.

As per El Tiempo (in Spanish), Pekerman is expected to stick with his tried-and-tested 4-2-2-2 formation, despite experimenting with a 4-3-2-1 in the recent 3-0 friendly win over Jordan.

The majority of the players pick themselves due to good past performance and their knowledge of the system. There are, however, question marks over who will replace Luis Amaranto Perea and Radamel Falcao Garcia, both of whom were forced to pull out of the squad due to injury.

Here are Pekerman’s key selection decisions ahead of Colombia’s Group C fixture against Greece.
