The 2022 World Cup qualifiers continued tonight (Friday-Saturday) at the South American home, when before the continental champion Brazil stepped on the grass, Uruguay recorded its second victory in the campaign and defeated Colombia 0: 3 away. Oscar Tavares’ team recovered from the defeat to Ecuador in the October window and inflicted a premiere loss on “Captors”.
Edinson Cavani scored the first goal in favor of “Celeste”, already in the fifth minute. Yiri Mina made a serious mistake in coming out from behind and lost the ball to the Nahitan Nands, who left the Manchester City striker in a very easy position to kick from her into the net. The advantage was doubled in the 54th minute, after Rodrigo Bentenkor failed in the box and Uruguay received a penalty, which Luis Suarez used to score the second. Darwin Nunez, who was recently mentioned as a candidate to strengthen Barcelona, was responsible for the most beautiful goal of the game: the striker Benfica kicked in from a distance of about 25 meters and sealed the result of the game in the 73rd minute. Mina closed out his awful personal evening with a red card in extra time, following an elbow he sent to Nunez’s head.
Uruguay will try to continue the momentum on the night between Tuesday and Wednesday, so an even bigger challenge awaits them in the form of the Brazilian national team (live broadcast on the sports package of Sports 1). Colombia, for their part, will embark on a tough away game at Quito’s heights, where they will be hosted by Ecuador who opened the qualifiers with not a bad fit at all.
