Los Angeles club player Christian “Chicho” Arango, is one of the novelties in the list Rinaldo Rueda For the November matches against Brazil and Paraguay. This Friday, in an interview with Major League Soccer, the former Millonarios forward noted his calling, the expectations he had reached and left occasional praise for the national coach. Hopes to add minutes with the tricolor you will be given?
“The national team calls for the best in the country, those who are better at the moment. It’s difficult to play against the national teams, it’s not like playing a friendly match. You have a responsibility and you are fighting for a country. I hope things in these two games can add ( …) My children and my wife know what it means to be on the national team and how happy I am, they will enjoy it as much as I do.”
“Chichou” is the Colombian who has scored the most goals in the MLS (13 goals in 16 games) and is only four goals behind Raul Ruiz Diaz, the tournament’s top scorer in 26 games. He is fond of goal and has been one of the most requested players by fans across social networks. Rueda was tracking him and decided to cite him.
“It’s a very wise coaching staff and they make their decisions. I came here with a lot of desire and a great desire to get ready for a call and now I’m enjoying it and I hope to enjoy it even more when I’m there. It might not happen in the national team matches. Lots of goals, but we have strikers who make a difference. Big, they are very good and can score at any moment.”
Finally, Arango mentioned the first challenge to be held next Thursday against Canarinha, which Colombia already smashed a point ahead of after a 0-0 draw in the Metropolitan. “The rivalry with Brazil is very beautiful and lives in an intense way. Both teams always want to win. We have to prepare ourselves mentally for this match, aiming for 3 points.”
