Although there are goals in the game, the game between Chile and Colombia has some options in goals that leave some certainties: Camilo Vargas is a figure for the national team in the first half and, unfortunately, the defender Yerry Mina was injured again.
Yerry Mina was injured for the twentieth time
That’s right, the Fiorentina central defender has been injured for the 20th time in his sporting career. This time, in an important match for the squad led by Néstor Lorenzo.
It all happened in the 19th minute, when the good defender of the national team ran to clear a ball that was in danger of scoring for ‘La Roja’. With the effort and the spike made, the player felt a pull on the back of his right leg.
Three minutes later, Néstor Lorenzo moved his chips and Galatasaray’s new defender from Turkey, Davinson Sánchez, came off the bench.
Mina’s presence is essential in the Colombian rearguard, as he becomes a key bastion and that voice of command that his teammates need. He was, for example, a strong figure in the victory of the Colombian National Team in Gelsenkirchen, when the Tricolor defeated Germany 0-2.
The quality of the defender is indisputable and his physical strength, one of the characteristics most desired by his coaches, however, constant physical discomfort means that the defender does not have the best reputation, because he is injured for a long time. .
At the moment, it is expected that what happened to Yerry is not serious, because he has not yet made his debut at his new club, Fiorentina in Italy, a team that is eagerly waiting for him in Serie A.
