Colombia asks for calm after its victory over the United States Sports XEU

Rafael Santos Borre, who scored a stunning goal, was one of the symbols of Colombia’s 5-1 defeat to the United States on Saturday, but the striker urged not to get carried away with euphoria and to keep working for the imminent Copa America.

He said in statements to the American channel Telemundo immediately after the end of the friendly match: “We must not confuse the result or the loser. We play one match after another and we know that preparation continues and we must be focused.” .

Colombia extended its impressive unbeaten streak to 22 matches with a 5-1 win over the United States with goals from Jón Arias, Rafael Santos Burre, Richard Ríos, Jorge Carrascal and Luis Sinistra.

He said, “I think it was a very nice match for us. We knew that we were facing a great competitor. The United States is doing things very well. It is a team that works well, and it is a strong, aggressive team.” .

He added: “But in the first half we tried to find the result of the match. We tried to be aggressive, and we scored goals quickly, and this gave us the advantage.”

He was also very happy with the amazing goal he scored from a scissor kick to make it 0-2 in the first half.

“Thank God it went well for me. I was reading the play and it happened to me at the moment, so I’m very happy about that,” he explained.

The Coffee team will play another preparatory match next Saturday, this time against the Bolivian team, before starting the Copa America Championship, in which it is in Group D alongside Brazil, Paraguay and Costa Rica.
