LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Bolivia vs Colombia 2011 last night ended in a stunning win for Colombia. It also moved up the team in the CONMEBOL rankings. Yesterday’s Bolivia vs Colombia 2011 game was a FIFA Copa Mundial (World Cup) qualifier match for the CONMEBOL. For member countries, the top four advance automatically. A fifth place country still has a chance to advance if it beats a to-be-determined Asian country. Last night, Colombia had its first qualifier and won, moving into sixth place. For Bolivia, the news was not as good. With two losses in two games, Bolivia is last in rankings in the CONMEBOL.
While Bolivia’s Walter Flores made news, delivering a blistering strike at the eighty-forth minute of action, it was not enough for Bolivia. Dorlan Pabon put Colombia in the lead with an initial goal at the forty-eight minute mark. But Radamel Falcao Garcia delivered the game winning goal for Colombia at the ninety-minute mark.
Bolivia was dominate but not accurate. It produced twenty eight shots yesterday compared to Colombia’s twelve.
Bolivian fans have two more Copa Mundial matches to watch in the coming months. Bolivia vs. Argentina is November 11 and then Bolivia vs Venezuela is November 15. The team has no international friendly matches slated for the rest of the year. Bolivia’s will have four qualifiers next year, two in the June and two in October.
Colombia’s win last night was its second consecutive success this fall, previously defeating Honduras in September in friendly action. Next month, fans and news will have all eyes on two back to back Colombian matches. First there is Colombia vs. Venezuela on November 11, and then Colombia vs Argentina on November 15. The team has no other matches scheduled for this year. News analysts believe that a big win in both matches will secure Colombia advancing to the next round.
