Peru vs.  Colombia: David Ospina was injured in Napoli vs.  Fiorentina for the Italian Cup |  selection of Colombia |  NCZD |  FOOTBALL-PERUVIAN

The goalkeeper of the Colombian team and Napoli, David Ospina, made sense after the end of the first half in the match against Fiorentina for the Italian Cup. This was confirmed by his club through a statement on its official website.

The ‘Blues’ mentioned that the goalkeeper accused a resentment in the left calf so they agreed to replace him with Alex Meret. The replacement could do little to prevent the ‘Morados’ win 5-2 in the round of 16 of the competition.

This news generates a lot of concern in Colombia, as there are fifteen days before the match against the Peruvian team (January 28) in Barranquilla for the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers. Then, they will have to visit Argentina (February 1) so the fans of the ‘Cafeteros’ hope that the goalkeeper’s injury is not serious.

It is important to mention that David Ospina achieved regularity in the Napoli arc. The goalkeeper has played, so far, 21 games this season and, thanks to that, he is constantly considered in the call of Reinaldo Rueda.

Duván Zapata is also a doubt in Colombia

Reinaldo Rueda has a question related to one of the important players that he usually summons: Duván Zapata. The striker is injured and there is no exact date for him to return to activity with Atalanta, his club.

In fact, coach Gian Piero Gasperini ruled out the striker for Sunday’s January 16 game against Inter Milan. Projecting the commitment against Lazio on Saturday 22, the last before attending the call of the national team, the strategist of the Dea team does not have a clear picture either.

“Everything has been complicated in recent days between injuries and casualties. When you have absences in only one area you can have problems. We are in a moment of loss “, explained the coach of the Bergamo cast in reference to the falls of Duván Zapata and Robin Gosens, the most important for the team.
