    if Cardona is not on list of FORTY preliminary than he's officially been blacklisted by the FCF and would make CQ look rather weak in his decision making. I can understand why he didnt call him up for the Asia tour as he was also using Reyes as a main point of reference for players but there is no reason why the guy shouldnt be called now---he's been at the helm for 3 months and should have a good idea just how clutch Cardona can be on this team. There are bigger 'real' criminals that have seen more breaks than Cardona.

    I agree, and I also think that he may be on the list of 40.

    Will he make the official list of 23 though? That is a difficult question to answer.
    We saw how when JuanFer went down he went for a guy like Chara for his replacement. I think he may opt out for another winger if need be or even another Defensive minded midfielder if he does not like Cardona.

    a lot can still happen over the final few weeks of the club campaigns.

    Unless there are some external pressures from sponsors like Adidas or ???, I can't see how Cardona can be excluded for CA19 when JFQ is out and James is potentially a step or two away from a trip to the surgery table.

    It will be great to see Cuadrado return but the only other proven player that can bring balance to the midfield is Uribe (i sound like someone from Star Wars LOL)

    Based on what Portuguese fans and Iranian fans say about his feelings toward creative players I can see how he can be excluded. Even if there is not external pressure.

    I hear ya; but to be fair there weren’t any legit creative/attacking options for Portugal that CQ kept off the team in 2008-010. Deco was on the decline and Nani got injured.

    I guess you can say Quaresma was kept off the NT during that time, but he was also at his worst form (club wise) during that time....

    I guess we will have to wait and see how things shake out.

    Unless, it's....Cardona. Think about ALL of the big games he's missed. Copa Sub 20 HOSTED in Colombia...he had been killing it on the way to the WC and get's left out. Both World Cups but specially the last one and Copa Libertadores finals. incredible

    I did not want to get into this issue but yes. Things do add up when it comes to off the field and disciplinary issues over the years and sometimes we just have to call a spade a spade.
    We cannot rely on him making a roster of an important tournament or match.

    Rumors swirling that Cardona will be called up for the Copa.

    But of course there are many conflicting reports out there.
    It does seem like he will be on the list of 40 that will come out soon so that is at least encouraging. (But still just all speculation.)

    The guy can be a huge idiot but on ability he deserves to be in the squad. Hopefully he learns his lesson and is on his best behavior because we need him.

    It was kind of a punch but it did not make much of a connection..
    It was first called a yellow but with VAR it was upgraded to a red.
    It was a valid red.

    That isn’t a red. Stupid by Cardona but with VAR that is a dive especially if you can review it

    It is a red by the letter of the law. Especially since his hand touched his face.

    When the guy is clicking on all cylinders, he's a force. He's proved his talent with the NT as well. With JFQ injured, James without a team, Benedetti still waiting to shine, name another AMF that can do what Cardona can do?

    We don't qualify to the world cup without him. James is the only other player we can say that about.

    Falcao? Wasn’t he our top scorer?

    Ospina.... does any other goalie give you confidence? Especially last cycle. Even Ospina most that cycle it was like dude leave Arsenal for a team you can start or please god give us another GK!

    Yeah without the goals of carodna in paraguay and bolivia on the road, we wouldnt play in russia.........one of the best amf that we have had and that know use the shirt............maybe without his goal agsint peru , peru would draw that game too.

    and im not counting the asistances.

    A shame he wasnt elected for the world cup.


    but @praxis.en isnt expert in analysis..........he say a lot of things......but dont prove how is true what he is saying.

    If I not mistaken, the ref can't change yellow with red using the VAR. They had the same decision in the Copa between Ecu-Uru and I think that if the ref booked the player, he cannot use VAR to replace the card. Regardless, Cardona is an idiot but yeah, he is a hell of a player.

    I did not watch the Ecu-Uru match so I will not comment on that.
    I do know that if your hand touches the faces in a deliberate act it is a red. And that had to be changed from a yellow to a red based on that.
