BARRANQUILLA, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Colombia manager Carlos Queiroz defended his decision to substitute James Rodriguez in Colombia's 3-0 victory over Venezuela in their CONMEBOL World Cup qualifier here on Friday.
The coach once again asked for patience with 18-year-old Ansu, who scored against Ukraine in September: "We want him to continue growing in a favorite environment," he commented, saying that "of course" Fati and Adama could play in the same team. Enditem
Fujian's Wang Qiuyi scored a career-high 29 points but still couldn't stop the team from losing. Sichuan kept its double-figure margin during the ensuing three quarters, with its biggest lead at 30 points with two minutes left to play.
"Maybe this is my last season as a player," she emphasized. "I need to give other players the chance, and hope to become a coach as soon as possible, which is good for me in the future."
Queiroz said the move had nothing to do with planning for the next match against Chile in Santiago on Tuesday.
"I told them to fight until the end no matter when leading or trailing. All efforts have paid off now," she said. Enditem
"We have to maintain an attacking mindset at all times," the 19-year-old told a virtual press conference.
