While scrolling Twitter a couple of days ago, I came across a video that involved Juan Cuadrado and a couple of his Colombian teammates practicing what I assumed to be a little goal celebration dance or two. It went a little something like this...
El bailecito de Cuadrado, Mina y Mojica.— Paul Rincón (@Pau1Rincon) June 29, 2018
Here you have a couple of tall and lengthy defenders in Mina and Mojica alongside everybody’s favorite Colombian winger, Johnny Square. As you can see, Cuadrado’s hips are in perfect condition, so there’s no need to check those out at J Medical upon his return from international duty later this month.
Maybe they were just dancing for dancing’s sake.
Maybe they were practicing their very next goal celebration.
Maybe they were just showing us that Colombians can gyrate better than anybody else.
Colombia vs. England is the nightcap of this final Round of 16 doubleheader. It’s the main event of the day. And I’d be saying that even if Stephan Lichtsteiner wasn’t suspended and eligible to yell to his heart’s content at any referee or opposing player that dares to get in his path of destruction. (No, just seeing Albin Ekdal on the field against the Swiss isn’t enough to swing the pendulum into today’s opening game’s favor. Next time, Albin.)
