With the last name is not enough, especially in Argentine soccer where one has to earn his place. Edwin Cardona since he arrived at Racing fought to have his place in the starting team, but lately he hasn’t come straight. His level has been highly criticized by the fans and especially because it seems that he has little desire for it. Or at least that’s how it was seen in a warm-up prior to the duel against Platense. Yesterday, in a reduced soccer practice, He took a right hand from the left that went into an angle and the Colombian decided to raise the goal to his nets. He threw a stick…
In the match against Vélez, on June 16 by date 3 he started and then had to wait until day 18 to reappear among the 11. This marks how his time at the Academy has been. It wasn’t just the viral video of his precompetitive moves. In addition, in the prelude to the match against Patronato -date 19- Fernando Gago decided to remove him from the squad for “not being in optimal conditions”.

His physical condition was another of the points that the fans criticized him in recent times. Cardona earned a surname with a level in Argentine soccer, but in the Acadé he has nothing to gain from that. In the League he has played 11 games, but only three were from the start. In the first semester, for the South American: 4 PJ, three starters. Goals and assists? Zero.

The Colombian scored a fantastic goal, but it was still in training. In the networks, the racinguistas asked to see that desire and that level on the field, where the actions end up taking value. On Sunday, when Racing receives Unión, he will surely be on the bench but if he enters, the 70 will have his real opportunity to show what he is capable of. In the meantime, he will continue to be in the eye of the storm.
