Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos was left out of the Colombia squad altogether for their clash against Venezuela in the Copa America.
The Lowdown: Morelos selected for Copa America
Morelos has been selected as part of Colombia’s 28-man squad for the South American championship (fcf.com.co), which is being played in Brazil.
The 24-year-old Gers man has one goal in 10 caps for his country, and will be hoping to add to that this tournament.
The Latest: Morelos not selected
Morelos was an unused substitute in his country’s first match of the tournament, a 1-0 victory over Ecuador.
Against Venezuela, though, he was not even selected as part of the matchday squad.
Colombia could only manage a lacklustre 0-0 draw, so perhaps they could have utilised a bit of extra venom up front.
The Verdict: Plenty of depth
While Rangers fans will no doubt be surprised their man did not play a part against Venezuela, he does have plenty of competition for a spot in the starting line-up.
Both Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel have also been selected, and they managed 37 Serie A goals between them for Atalanta last term (infogol.net).
Should Morelos start for Colombia?
With just two games played, Morelos still has plenty of time to make an impression at the tournament. If Colombia continue to be so poor, boss Reinaldo Rueda may have no choice but to select the former HJK Helsinki man from the start.
