Fredy Guarin lights up World Cup warm-up with 30-yard screamer

Published Add your comment

Colombia fans have spent the majority of the week bemoaning the loss of strike star Radamel Falcao from injury on the eve of their first World Cup since 1998, but long-term Chelsea target Fredy Guarin gave them reason to smile again last night with an unbelievable strike from range.

Guarin captained the South American side in their final warm-up clash against Jordan on Friday and put the exclamation mark on a 3-0 win in some style just a minute from time, shifting the ball inside and finding the top corner with a venomous drive uncorked with authority.

Chelsea in particular have been mentioned in connection with a move for the Inter Milan midfield maestro across the last two transfer windows, a stance they may want to review if the 27-year-old carries this kind of form into this summer's festival of football.

With Falcao out Colombia needs goals from all over the pitch to make sure a star-studded squad have a tournament to remember so close to home, and Guarin alongside other goalscorers Juan Cuadrado and James Rodriguez now have an even more crucial part to play.
