The coach of the Ecuadorian soccer team, Tri, facs this Friday, September 6, his past, as some players of the Colombian soccer team owes part of its alignment to Rueda. This debt will go to second place today when they face his former mentor in a key game for the World Cup Brazil 2014.
This group includes the midfielders Abel Aguila, Freddy Guarin, Macnell Torres and Aldo Leao Ramirez, key players in the team looking to qualify for the World Cup with the help of Jose Pekerman.
“With him I had some pretty good moments in the U-20 and the adult too, but now we are on the other side and we will fight for our goal,” said Aguilar. For Colombian midfielder the affection and gratitude will be “left aside” because Colombia is “playing a very beautiful and special as a world championship match“, which they have not participated since France 1998.
During the management of Rueda, Aguilar and his soccer brothers reached a historic third place in the World Sub-20 UAE 2003, the best location of the Colombian national team in a tournament of that category.
For the midfield player “is a pleasure to see these guys who once shared with me“.
Ecuador and Colombia will play today at 15h30 (local time) at the Metropolitano stadium in Barranquilla. The event will air on TC My Channel.
