Uruguay and Colombia face each other for a place in the final


Uruguay and Colombia face each other for a place in the final

The key to the illusion. There is only room for one in Sunday’s Copa América finals in Miami, where Argentina await, and Uruguay and Colombia want to score. Another of the great matches of the tournament, with two strong candidates for the champion, will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, near the Atlantic, between the light blue and coffee trees, with the Mexican arbitration, the César Ramos. Bank of America Stadium was packed. With the energy sent by thousands of Uruguayans and thousands of Colombians following this Copa América. Starts at 8 pm local time, 2 am on Thursday in Spain.

Colombia is growing. They are undefeated and heading for 30 games. He finished first in the group, sending Brazil to second place, and marched calmly and stress-free into the quarterfinals, with a 5-0 win over Panama. They have the best James Rodríguez of the last decade, recovered, physically impeccable, and full of his football skills. On the left foot, Lucho Díaz is the imbalance that Barcelona dreams of. Sharp, very difficult to mark, is another of the differences of Néstor Lorenzo’s team.

Uruguay were an offensive locomotive in the first two Cup games, they won the third well against the United States, but suffered against Brazil to salvage a tie that left them in the penalty shootout, where they ended up to win. Bielsa’s style in all its splendor was on display at the start of the tournament. Against the canarinha, in the complement, and in the beginning in the last 25 minutes, when they had to play 10 because of the expulsion of Nandez, they won the “Uruguayan way”. Suffering, scoring, locked in a low block to shut down scoring opportunities for the Brazilians.

He came off badly on defense in the semi-final. Without Nandez, without Ronald Araujo, Bielsa has to rebuild the last line. Josema Gimènez has a chance to appear as a starter, Sebastiàn Cáceres too, and a surprise, perhaps, Agustín Canobbio on the right side.

No place for lukewarm. It was a great semifinal of the Copa América. Great game in Charlotte.
