It’s been a busy day on the news front concerning the Colombian national team with three major developments.
Hernan Dario ‘Bolillo’ Gomez has today announced his resignation from the role of Colombian national team coach in the fallout of his assault of a women outside a Bogota bar on Saturday.
Colombia were the first side to qualify for the last eight of the 2011 Copa America, coming through their group undefeated and without conceding a goal. Victories over Costa Rica and Bolivia and a draw with Argentina in a game in which they certainly had enough chances to win saw them tipped as potential winners of the tournament, but such optimism was soon punctured by a 2-0 defeat to Peru in the quarter finals.
