After losing to Venezuela at the weekend, Colombia again lost to
Uruguay and are now in last place in the final group. World Cup
qualification seems further away than ever.
Colombia had a good start against Uruguay, who had also lost their first match in this group. Hernan Bertuz of Independiente de Medellín opened the score after only nine minutes.
But Uruguay gained strengh in the second half and Matías Aguirregaray equalised three minutes before the hour mark.
The winning goal came twenty minutes later, and was scored by Bolton Wanderers striker Sebastián Charquero.
Colombia will have to earn a considerable amount of points from their remaining three games if they want to have a chance of qualifying for July’s Under-21 World Cup.
On Wednesday, the Colombian youngsters face Paraguay in Puerto La Cruz.
