The Colombian shot-stopper of Arsenal David Ospina has recently performed at the international stage as he was included in Colombia’s FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifying match against Brazil which concluded with the Brazilian national side claiming a 2-1 triumph.
Even though the Colombian national side lost this match against Brazil, Carlos Valderrama had a few positive things to say about the team that he used to perform with over 15 years ago.
Carlos Valderrama is one of the most recognized Colombian icons in the world of football as he made over 100 appearances for his national side. It’s been around 12 years since Valderrama retired from playing football at a competitive level but he still remains up to date with everything that is occurring in the sport and he recently praised Arsenal’s David Ospina.
Brazil did overcome Colombia with a narrow scoreboard of 2-1 but Valderrama is certain that the Brazilian nation would’ve won by an overwhelming amount if it hadn’t been for the impressive performance that David Ospina displayed during that match as he said:
Colombia football legend Carlos Valderrama is furious at the role of James Rodriguez at Real Madrid this season.
Rodriguez is considered as one of the biggest stars in Colombia right now. Expectations were that he would go on to become the next Valderrama. This certainly appeared to be the case when he made the € 80 million move to Real Madrid a few years ago. Since the move, he has become one of the most expensive players in the world. He has been playing alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. For this reason, he was expected to become even better.
However, Rodriguez’ development at Real Madrid appears to have come to a halt in the last few months. The forward has been unable to make any impact in the team despite being in good form for the national team. Rodriguez has not been getting much game time under Zinedine Zidane. He is expected to be on the bench for the upcoming game against Barcelona. Valderrama is disappointed that Madrid are not giving him a fair chance. Under the regime of Carlo Ancelotti, Rodriguez contributed an astonishing 35 goals in just 46 games. Yet, he does not seem to find confidence in the new manager. Read more
With the world cup coming up in 2022 being hosted in Qatar, it appears that Qatar is now gunning to win the World 2018 cup and is doing everything in their power to make sure they’re ready to achieve just a feat.
There’s a lot of scary competition however qualifying for the world cup in 2018. We have Russia who is pushing their boundaries and limits in Russia and then we have only 12 more nations that are left to quality for the world cup. The World Cup is only two years away and every team is anxious to win. Every team wants to not only qualify but leave the stadium as a victor.
The main problem comes with Daniel Carreno as he struggles with a very real problem. He needs to manage to make it past the third round if he wants to make it into the tournament and he’d be known as the very first person to make unreal history as the very first Qatari team to even play in football’s largest tournament. Qatari has not gone without any kind of scrutiny or doubt, as they face a lot of questions during their journey to not only the 2018 world cup but the 2022 cup which will be hosted right on their home turf.

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.

James Rodriguez enjoyed going through a superb campaign during the 2014 World Cup as the Colombian player finished the international tournament by being the top goal-scorer and his impressive string of performances was enough for Real Madrid to be impressed and offload €80 million in order to secure his services.

Carlos Valderrama is a former football player and he represents an important part in the history books of Colombia as he is the most capped player in the history of Colombia after making 111 international appearances. Read more
