Colombia manager Eduardo Lara has announced his selection for the
upcoming World Cup qualifiers with Bolivia and Venezuela. New names are
Stalin Motto, Jairo Palomino and Iván Vélez.
Midfielder Stalin Motta plays a big part in La Equidad’s success of the last few years. Iván Vélez impressed with América de Cali and Jairo Palomino is the only Nacional player to have received an invitation.
The Colombian team will have to do without Giovanni Hernández, as the Junior star was not selected for the two qualifiers.
