Jeison Murillo will not take part in the upcoming matches for the Colombian national team against Bolivia and Ecuador, to be played 23 and 26 March respectively.

The Inter defender is not listed in the squad of coach Jose Pekerman, who from Serie A has instead called Carlos Bacca, Juan Cuadrado, Cristian Zapata, Carlos Sanchez, Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel.

    What is wrong with Argentinian coaches?
    Zapata yes Murillo no?
    This is the guy who, in 2006, left Zanetti home to play his replacement in Inter,Burdisso , in their starting XI!!
    And then they wonder why, with so much talent, they often get nowhere.

    Cristian Zapata, let that sink in

  • Stefano

    Murillo does’nt get summoned for Colombia, Kondogbia the same for France,even thou he is now playing wonderfully…Icardi with his soap opera with Argentina…it’s not the kind of fame you want to have,when players and agents talk to each other.

    On the positive side:
    4 interisti summoned for Italy,I don’t remember of so many interisti summoned for Italy for a long ,loooong time.
    Maybe The 90’s?
    I remember Italy’s world cup squad had Di Biagio,Moriero,Bergomi,and at least one between Dino Baggio,Roberto Baggio and Vieri was an interista that season,so probably,I would say it was exactly 4 in that 23 men squad?

    And ..going way,way. back..I know that,when I was a small child the Italy Champions of Europe 68(Only time Italy won that thing,defating Yugoslavia in the final) and finalist of the 1970 Mexico World Cup,defeated by Pele’s Brasil was somehow an “Italinter” with Mazzola,Bonisnegna,Facchetti,,Domenghini,Burgnich,Picchi,Bertini ..then Bellugi a little later..etc.
    And even in the early 70’s it was still quite an.. “Italinter”.
    NOT so much since then.

    • Didn’t the 1982 Azzurri squad possess the older Baresi? You left out Guiseppe Baresi – a fine defender, he also played in one other world cup.

      • Stefano was his very young brother Franco in the 22 squad in 82.

    I’m sure we asked them not to pick him. We can’t afford any injuries to backlinw

    He even lose the competition from some unknown names out there
