Carlos Valderrama is of the view that Radamel Falcao will be Colombia’s trump card in Copa America.
Colombia had impressed everyone with their game in World Cup 12 months back and that’s why, there are expectations that they might go the distance in Copa America.
Colombia is not the favourite for the title by any means in the presence of teams like Brazil, Argentina, but, they are surely seen as the dark horse and if some of their key players click, they might be a tricky team to beat.
Apart from Falcao, James Rodriguez is another player who can test any defensive line up in the world.
Talking about Colombia’s form of late, they have been on the losing side just a couple of times out of the 20 games that they have played.
Their defence has been quite tight in every game and there has been enough potency in the offence as well. Read more »
In the previous edition of the World Cup, there was a high amount of squads that were prohibited from having sexual intercourse including: Mexico, Russia, Chile and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The players from the nations of Brazil and England on the other hand were allowed to do it.
Carlos Valderrama is a retired footballer who made over 100 appearances at the international stage for Colombia and represented his national side in 3 World Cups. Valderrama believes that allowing the players of the squad to have sex is something that benefits the entire team.
“If we had sex, sex at the World Cup, we would have been better. We would have relaxed after games, especially after losses. That’s total relaxation. Of course it’s better to have sex during the World Cup.”Valderrama said as he voiced his opinion concerning having sexual relations during the international competition.
Joechim Low allowed his German squad to engage in sexual intercourse and they were the nation that came out on top with the victory as Germany was crowned as the best team in the world after defeating Argentina in the finals.
The Spanish side was given permission to have sex during the 2014 World Cup and it seems like it was a bad decision as the team of Vicente del Bosque was one of the first nations to lose and be disqualified after only being able to win one match in the group stages but was defeated when facing off with Netherlands and Chile.

Carlos Valderrama spent 22 years playing football with a number of different clubs around the world including: Deportivo Cali, Montpellier, Tampa Bay Mutiny and Colorado Rapids just to name a few of them.

Valderrama has praised Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez who is currently recovering from an injury he sustained earlier in February.
James Rodriguez was signed by Real Madrid after the Colombian player made a huge impact in the 2014 World Cup as he finished as the top goal-scorer after scoring 5 goals. For a transfer fee of €80 million, Real Madrid snatched him up but the young attacker has received criticism as he has not truly managed to live up to his astronomically high price tag however, Valderrama has been surprised by what the young player has accomplished since arriving to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Lodeiro was expected to have a major impact at Corinthians when he came to the club last year, but the player has struggled for first-team opportunities. Former manager Mano Menezes did not fancy the attacking midfielder for much of the league campaign.
As a result, transfer rumours have come out suggesting that Argentine outfit Boca Juniors may be interested in making a move for the player. The player made only seven appearances in the Brazilian Serie A last season. Hence, Boca Juniors are looking to take him out of the Corinthians misery by signing him on a loan deal till the end of the campaign. Read more »
