Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos continued his good season by being selected to start for Colombia against Algeria on Tuesday night, as announced by the Rangers media team.
🇨🇴 @morelos2106 starts tonight for Colombia.

Morelos also played in Colombia’s first fixture of the international break against Chile, coming on as a first-half substitute.
His recall comes as no surprise given his early-season form of 14 goals in 17 appearances plus 5 assists in all competitions. More importantly – considering what happened last season in terms of being sent off multiple times – he has only had three yellow cards this season, suggesting he’s maturing as a footballer.
Still, it was a hugely disappointing night for Los Cafeteros as they were smashed 3-0 by the African Cup of Nations winners in Lille.
As you can imagine, given his status at Ibrox, Rangers fans welcomed his selection for Colombia and displayed their sense of pride in the young forward’s development on social media.
If you think I’m depositing money into bet365 to watch morelos like a proud Da then youd be 100% correct!
