The Colombian national soccer team left a good impression Friday, beating neighbors Venezuela 0-2 in an international friendly.
After losing their last two games against Venezuela, Colombia hoped to do better under the helm of new manager Hernan Dario Gomez and his assistant Leonel Alvarez.
And 17 minutes had been played in Venezuela when the Colombians took the lead as Juan Cuadrado struck home from about ten meters.
Venezuela did put pressure on the Colombian goal in the second half but it was the visiting side to score another with Dayro Moreno converting a right-winged cross for 0-2.
Next Tuesday, Colombia play their next friendly match against Mexico in San Nicolas de los Garza near Monterrey.
