Ospina (Tu Tranquilo) the saviour?

From an ANR correspondent in Bogota

Colombians are a lot happier facing England than Belgium. This was obvious from England’s game against Belgium when everyone cheered when Adnan Januzaj scored and his team won to avoid playing Colombia in the next round.

Most Colombians and the national press think they will win, although they are often naive when it comes to football and not realistic.

Ospina hasn’t spoken directly about the game in the national press, but it has reported on an article in the Sun which says he is the weak link in the team.

There are several articles which state why he has been important for them. In the first couple of games he made some really important saves.

There is an expression here about Ospina which is “Tu Tranquilo”, which means “You relax yourself” (i.e. don’t worry we have Ospina to save everything).

James Rodriguez looks like he might miss the game due to injury, which would be great for England’s chances, as he is Colombia’s best player.
