Last Friday, September 30, the Colombian Football Federation announced a new invitation to coach Nestor Lorenzo, with the aim of conducting a mini-course with Colombian professional footballers.
For these players, it is crucial to receive the Argentine strategist’s invitation, as it may be an opportunity to communicate closely with Tricolor and aspire to be taken into account for official calls for friendly or competitive matches such as the following matches and one CONMEBOL qualifier.
With the aim of qualifying for the 2026 World Cup, which will be organized by Mexico, Canada and the United States, Néstor Lorenzo needs to see all potential players to shape the project He is considering winning a place in that sporting event, as well as forming a competitive team to face the 2024 Copa America.

Specifically, the federation reported on Tuesday that “the Colombian national senior men’s team underwent its first field training at the Colombian Football Federation’s sports headquarters in Barranquilla with 24 players called up.”
“Coach Néstor Lorenzo had a full kit on the first day of scooter work. The statement added that the training focused on the movement of the ball with rapid transformations.

Modifications in the initial menu
Several modifications have been made to the recalled list due to injuries sustained by some players who Unfortunately, they had to step aside so that other football players could take their places In this second full call of the Argentine strategist after the friendly matches against Guatemala and Mexico in the United States.
Prior to the two call-ups, there was one with FCF goalkeepers only for a small course in Bogotá.
The first to be upset were Nicholas Gill (Union Magdalena) and Kevin Velasco (Deportivo Calle) “because of the physical discomfort that prevents them from attending the call,” the union began. Given this, Nestor Lorenzo decided to replace them with the names Jeison Lucumí (Deportes Tolima) and Cristian Tovar (Deportivo Pasto).
