“I had to celebrate in the Washington Post when we were in the middle of an interview,” explained Duque.

“Since this morning, I woke up and I was thinking about alienation and I am very happy with the victory and, now, there is a big challenge that is going to be England and I hope that the Colombian national team will take out all that strength, we want to see the selection reach the semifinal and the final of the championship, “he added.

Colombia achieved its pass to the Round of 16 round of the World Cup by defeating by the minimum on Thursday to Senegal.
