According to the criteria of
The Peruvian team is measured against Colombia for the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers at the Nacional de Lima. A vital match for the red-white who, after four dates, has only added one point. However, he will have a team at the helm that he has only beaten once at home in the Playoffs. In addition, the coffee squad will have an old acquaintance: Reinaldo Rueda.

The Colombian coach already knows what it is like to face the Peruvian team. In total he has led 9 times against the white and red, achieving 4 victories, 4 defeats and 1 draw. This match for the World Cup qualifiers could tilt this statistic.
Rueda meets Peru and Gareca’s Peru meets Rueda. In fact, you are Playoffs, Chile, with the Colombian coach in command, defeated the bicolor 2-0. But the two goals of the national team are still recorded 3-0 in a friendly (10/12/18) and in the last America Cup.
THE WHEEL SLATE
The Peru vs. Colombia, will be the premiere of Reigning Wheel in command of the coffee selection. During its passage through Chile led 27 matches, getting 10 losses, 8 draws and only 9 wins. Numbers that in the long run triggered the strategist’s departure. Even so, he left very important things that could be seen in the Nacional.
With Chile, Reinando Rueda frequently used two systems: 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1. Prioritizing the good game, short passes, pressure, avoiding the balls and construction of attack from the middle and the ends. The Colombian is a student of football and when he has to change his tactical drawing, he does so.
He went on to play with the Chilean national team 4-3-3 in the Copa América Brazil 2019. A system that led to the semifinals of the tournament. However, they were hit hard against Peru. Just for the duel against the white and red for the Qualifying Qatar 2022, returned to 4-2-3-1. With this system he achieved the maximum expression of the remembered Atlético Nacional who achieved the Copa Libertadores in 2016.
THIS IS HOW WHEEL TEAMS PLAY
Patience. That’s what teams have Reigning Wheel. They do not despair to attack by throwing balls. They always try to build plays, with ball possession, level with the ground from back to front. This is how he forms his way to goal. In defense the board indicates that the players must regroup and if it is necessary to cut with a foul there is no problem. Always with intelligence.
Its associated game moves towards the bands. Looking for relays between laterals, ruffles and ends. But it is the latter two that generate the great offensive weight. They play well close to the lines to create spaces in the midfield since the rivals are pending to cover them and leave gaps that are used by the steering wheels.
Lateralized attacks are a specialty in the teams of Wheel. That is why he asks his players to be physically and mentally quick to make good decisions. In addition to looking for the overflow, reaching the last line of the field, taking centers towards the strikers or flyers that always have to arrive as an option.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE WHEELS
The key to the success of the Reinaldo Rueda is in the midfield. The recovery flyer and the creation flyer play a fundamental role. When you place two front-line midfielders, you want both to be recuperators and generators. Of course, to achieve a balance one has to take a defensive posture and the other, offensive. Thus it maintains an order.
One of the midfielders usually descends towards where the defenders are, either between the center-backs or close to the wings. From there he assumes responsibility for the start of the game. He is responsible for the first passes. In Chile he did it with Arturo Vidal. In this video you can see how the Chilean steering wheel generates a quick exit. In the case of Colombia, this function could be exclusive to Barrios or Uribe.
Reinaldo Rueda He also plays with an organizer 10 as an offensive midfielder who is protected by the two front-line midfielders and the two wingers. It is the perfect link with the forward center. In that position I could fit very well Cardona. Who could be the perfect partner for Duván Zapata.
ONE MORE OPTION
The coach of the Colombian team is a chameleon. He is always looking for the best system so that his equipment works in the best way. Another of the figures that he could use if he does not play with a 10 like Cardona is the 4-2-2-2: 4 defenders, two recovery shuttlecocks, two flyers opened by the bands that make the round trip and two forwards that it could be Luis Fernando Muriel and Duván Zapata.
In this system the two central steering wheels are fundamental pieces because the weight of the game falls on them. That is why they must have good touch, agility in driving the ball, filtered passes, breaking lines and long-distance shots when the play requires it.
Here Rueda could place Wilmar Barrios and Mateus Uribe. Two steering wheels with a lot of travel and that have all the characteristics already mentioned. In addition, the two play in that position on their respective teams. The first fulfills a more defensive task and the second is more of an organizer with a lot of arrival at the rival goal.
The two forwards are also a big problem because Zapata is a forward center who knows how to position himself very well in the area and Muriel runs through the entire attack front complementing each other in the best way. In defensive matters they will be the first two to come out to press.
Reinaldo Rueda He did not have practice matches with the Colombian national team. What he is doing is putting together a team according to the virtues of his players. It has a campus to put together any system. Without a doubt, it will be a difficult rival for Peru.
