China VS World Cup-bound Colombia  
14 Nov2017
Colombia will play international friendlies against China in Chongqing Olympic Stadium  on November 14th, the Colombian Football Federation (FCF) said on Wednesday.

"These games will be fundamental in the team's preparation for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia," said a statement on the FCF website..

Colombia earned a place in football's premier international tournament by finishing fourth in South America's CONMEBOL qualifying tournament.

The World Cup will be played in 11 Russian cities from June 14 to July 15.

Monaco striker Radamel Falcao and Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina have been left out of Colombia's squad for international friendlies against China.

But there were recalls for center-back Yerri Mina, winger Felipe Pardo, defender Eder Alvarez Balanta and goalkeeper Jose Fernando Cuadrado, the Colombian Football Federation (FCF) said in a statement.

Coach Jose Pekerman also called up Monterrey forward Aviles Hurtado and Levante defender Jefferson Lerma for the first time.

Falcao has not played since tearing his right hamstring in Monaco's 2-0 victory over Caen in France's Ligue 1 on Oct. 21.

Ospina has been out of action since mid-October with a groin problem.

Colombia squad:

Goalkeepers: Leandro Castellanos (Santa Fe), Jose Fernando Cuadrado (Once Caldas)

Defenders: Santiago Arias (PSV), Stefan Medina (Monterrey), William Tesillo (Santa Fe) Cristian Zapata (AC Milan), Davinson Sanchez (Tottenham), Oscar Murillo (Pachuca), Frank Fabra (Boca Juniors), Yerri Mina (Palmeiras).

Midfielders: Jefferson Lerma (Levante), Mateus Uribe (America), Wilmar Barrios (Boca Juniors), Carlos Sanchez (Fiorentina), Abel Aguilar (Deportivo Cali), Juan Guillermo Cuadrado (Juventus), James Rodriguez (Bayern Munich), Giovanni Moreno (Shanghai Shenhua), Edwin Cardona (Boca Juniors).

Forwards: Carlos Bacca (Villareal), Luis Fernando Muriel (Sevilla), Duvan Zapata (Sampdoria), Miguel Borja (Palmeiras), Aviles Hurtado (Monterrey).
